Shadows



These photos are for Shadow Shot Sunday - a very good idea of Hey Harriet's from Australia. Go to her blog for more details.
The first picture is of Ollie about to go up on to the roof - except the ancient roof cat Mr.B is already there.......you can only see his shadow!



The second two pictures are from the terrace at Riad Al Madina in Essouira.



Such crisp, sharp light.



The last two are from the Jardin Majorelle where Yves St. Laurent's ashes were scattered last week.
I can't think of a more lovely place to haunt with the colors and the birds and things growing.
You can see the shadows of the bamboo on the wall.

Hi Elizabeth, you are probably the best photographer when in comes to shadow photos, and as always, these are very good, especially the cat, now I've got to figure out a way to train my rabbits!! Now, if you continue to set the standard too high..I will have problem catching up with you hahahaha..wonderful pictures all the time. Have a bunnderful bunday :D

Oh poor Ollie. I'm sure there's room enough on the roof for both Ollie & Mr B cat :)

These are beautiful photos. As always! Thanks so much for playing along. Very cool. Especially considering YOU are the inspiration behind Shadow Shot Sunday!

Have a fabbo Sunday :)

I enjoyed each of these photos. All different but each one a little essay on light and shadow and color. I love the cat photo, of course!

People are so imaginitive to come up with all these photo ideas, like shadow shot Sunday. Yours are admirable additions to the genre!

this is my patch said...

You have captured some fantastic shadows Elizabeth. I really must become more aware of them around me. x

Hi Elizabeth

I just found your "Shadows" photos and the funny thing is you advice Hey Harriet's from Australia blog as worth to visit. Indeed I did and I found out that we went to the same exhibition, since I live less than 5 minutes drive to the Goma. I took pictures of the same rabbit in company of my son Zachary. Please have a look at http://moroccaninaustralia.blogspot.com. It's my other blog that I didn't expose yet... Very small world!!!
