Shadow Shot Sunday



Our friend, Tracy, of Hey Harriet is hosting Shadow Shot Sunday for us once again. Thanks, Tracy!

I recently drove up the Garden State Parkway - a trip I must have taken 500 times or so in the past nine years. It was early morning this time, and I thought the shadows across the Parkway were very pretty.



On the way, I looked over and saw the shadow of my own car on the road as well. Not all that pretty, but interesting.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Yep....we can hear it now....woman getting ticketed for taking shadow pictures of her in her car! {And we thought texting was a problem!!}
Great shadow Bobbie!

Love the second one, the shadow car; it's as if it's passing by in a parallel world, hidden in plain sight.

I do hope you are feeling better! Great shadow shots! It is funny how once you start looking for shadows, you can't stop and begin seeing them everywhere! Love the first shot! Had to chuckle at The Summer Kitchen Girls -- woman getting ticketed for taking shadow shots of her in her care! That's us these days -- seeing shadows everywhere!

Enjoy your day!

I especially like that top shot, the empty, open road is so alluring, and you're right, the shadows really make it special!

I love the all sorts of shadows. It makes my head work. Mobilises and it start to think and give the shadows life. What I mean, I always interpret what's the shadow's reflect. That's really interest me.

YOur shots are well done.

Happy SSS...

I 'specially like the shadows that stretch across the the highway in the first photo... I think your roads look so much smoother than ours. Ours tends to be so much more torn up...

Sweet Repose said...

Now that's what I call a drive by shooting...I'm very familiar with them...was your knee steering the car??? Ha!

In the second shot, your car shadow could almost pass for an alien's space-mobile! Great shots!

Oh I had to laugh at your car shadow! It's huge! It gives the impression that you drive a big truck! Maybe you do... Lovely shots! :)

I love SSS - it shows the beauty in the ordinary. Love these.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love shadows on the road like this. I notice them too when I am driving but never thought to photograph them, thanks Bobbie!

Margaret Gosden said...

Yes, the car shadow shot is great, no doubt a fast one, but very sharp!

isn't it wonderful when the parkway is clear!

The shadows streching across the highway are very interesting. Like you dont want to run over them with your car, as if they are alive.
