Shadow Shot Sunday #71


Shadow Shot Sunday is here once again. Thank you, Tracy.


The summer is almost over here in the States, but I spent a pleasant afternoon in my son's yack yard. I found these shadows while I was there.



I noticed the shadow of a flower - and I do believe there is one of the bee that is heading toward it. I didn't notice him in the photo until I saw his shadow.

Oh, I love the shadow of the bee! Would never have seen it if he hadn't been in the shadow! How fun!!! Marvelous end of the summer shadow shots, Bobbie!

Have a lovely weekend!

The chair offers an artistic spider's web at the end of the Summer. The flower throws quite a small shadow on the concrete - yet, the form of the flower gives a stylish character on the off-white walkway. The bee is a great capture, too!

When I clicked on your Marigold photo(one of my favorite flowers)I saw the bee flying in a blur towards the marigold. He is so much clearer in the shadow. Great catch Bobbie.

Lovely end-of-summer shadows, Bobbie. These will make treasured memories during the depth of winter.

Sometimes, no need to chase them. They're been there waiting to be find. And that the best part. Shadows around us in reach is the most perfect one.

Perfect!

I love the shadow of the chair, but I am really impressed with the shadow of the bee. I think that's the first time I have ever seen such a thing!

I love the patterns in the first photo and I think the bee shadow is awesome in the second shot. Great shadow shot.

Funny the things we never noticed about the lowly shadow, till SSS came along...a whole other world of light...and dark.

Hey Harriet said...

Nice capture of the bee shadow! It's quite a big shadow for such a little critter :)

Just super shadows. I love the chair! I actually have chairs very similar and enjoy their shadows frequently.
