Shadow Shot Sunday #50



Shadow Shot Sunday means that Tracey, at Hey Harriet, over in Australia is hosting another day's meme, and there will be lots of fun pictures of shadows to view.

Today I have kind of a silly picture. I was waiting in a parkiing lot, and watching the gulls and other birds that frequent the place. First I saw a gull just walking around in circles.



As he walked along, the angle of the sun made him out to be a very tall birdie.



I just thought it was a pretty funny shadow.

Those gulls can look pretty big -- from the right angle! And shadows are funny, a chair in our kitchen just seemed to get a taller and taller back as the sun moved across the kitchen. Have a great weekend, Bobbie!

The last photo looks neat with the shadow and lines. I think the gull is on official business.

That's so cute! He looks like he's ready to head off to his car and drive away harhar!!!

Judy said...

Great shot Bobbie! Thanks for your comments regarding my niece.

Hey Harriet said...

Cute! Looks like he's on a mission. Perhaps he spotted a tasty looking crumb ahead and he's trying to beat his shadow to the snack. My money is on the shadow getting there first! :)

Raven said...

Cool shot. I wonder if he was chatting with the tall, odd-looking bird walking with him. Fun shot.

Kelly said...

Great shadow shots! You even have a double shadow in the first photo, the car and the gull both cast a shadow! You are so creative no matter where you are!

Sarah said...

That is funny! In his shadow he looks almost like a person.

Loved you very tall bird.
I think looking for shadows makes us more observant!

It is quite incredible how long shadows may be from the smallest things! This gull's shadow looks great!

Struttin'!!!!!!!!!

A funny shadow and great pictures! I especially like the second one because the car-park markings make such a cool background for the bird and his shadow.
