Shadow Shot Sunday

This is a photo from school this week. Ruby was learning how to ride a new type of bike and also trying to balance her baby on her knees. When she passed the number line, she carefully balanced the baby on number 5. There is a little shadow-of me taking the photo! Number two was taken today, when I went out to get a sandwich for lunch, and to get away from writing reports! This is a very recently built church and I was amused to see the cross, still in its wrapping, laying around waiting to be fitted. It just looks disrespectful somehow. Again, this was not planned as a shadow shot but there is a bit of shadow around the eaves of the building.

Happy SSS-go here to visit more shadow shooters at Hey Harriet. Happy Ist anniversary too!

The cross, on its side like that makes me think of a Station of the Cross, when Jesus fell with the weight of his burden.

(Oh, I'm a Catholic, by the way.)

Yes I see what you mean. I just can't believe they left it lying around like that.

Hi Sarah, thanks for visiting my blog. I'm with you on the taxidermy, and I don't know why! As an animal-lover one might expect that we wouldn't like stuffed dead animals, but I have to say, this is a strange thing I do like - the museums, etc. Maybe I just like to see how they look up close. Have you found others who share this (strange?) interest? I can see that you love animals, too :)

Me too, I make sure not to miss the stuffed animals! I've heard that they did a marvelous upgrade of the Museum of Natural History in London a couple of years ago. They certainly had some degraded animals when I visited many years ago. I hope to see its new incarnation. There's a small museum "stuffed" with stuffed animals a couple of hours from were I live (it's near Tillamook, Oregon), and I'm reminded I need to go back again. It's old-style with a lot of cool animals. If you're ever in Oregon, don't miss it :)

The baby shot is touching somehow- I can picture the little girl carefully placing it there. And the cross- I can't believe they left it like that either. Around here, someone would have stolen it by now.

Balancing babies is quite a feat! Catching shadows is easier - don't you think?

The cross - we agree....seems a bit weird that they left it like that!

Catherine said...

interesting couple of shots...quite serendipitous which is always how the best shadow shots are usually found!!

Raven said...

Nice shadows. Interesting about the cross...

I enjoyed your kitty photos below and your blues above too.

Hey Harriet said...

Wow, that is really odd to see the cross like that. It does seem wrong somehow. The top photo is cute!

Liz said...

Those are great pictures!

I see the shadows too. I second demotion to Poetikat the the cross looks like a Station of the Cross.

Anyways, your shots are cool!
