Shadow Shot Sunday

view from our garage 

I got out of the car with camera in hand, and looked out past Bob at the front yard, lifted the Rebel and SNAP!


 Bob said "WHAT are you doing?"   I said "Don't you SEE the shadows?" Bob Said "Yes, But Why?"

All together now, say it.. you know the answer....


Because She Could......

All those shadows are so pretty. You would think after all this time Bob wouldn't have to ask.

Very nice shadows. Since blogging, I notice things like shadows more. Enjoy your day.

Being a photographer helps you see things better. Great dappled shadows.

Oh he "saw" the shadows, after you said that. But he didn't *SEE* the shadows, the way you *SAW* the shadows, because of loving to take pics.

We lucky camera-toting-people, add so much to our lives, by being addicted to taking pics. "Auntie" sezzzzzz...!

Since joining al these groups with shadows and all. I am getting looking out the window in the morning standing with my coffee.

Yesterday afternoon I also seen the big Pine tree and the shadow was on the driveway. Was cool.
When I was looking at my fav program
on nature. Oasis. I look for all those shadows.Colors, you name it.

I am getting to enjoy the beauty of my surroundings more so and I love the other bloggers like yourself get all excited what you see and put on for us.

Ya, I know hubbies I am sure shake their heads at us. Saying is that what your going to take, ha,ha. Not what they would take. Give him time.

My hubby will say now. Hey look over there. Look at the shadow from the bridge to the river. I entered the other day.

Happy camera hunting Sunday and every day.

There is seeing and SEEING.....
Love that you really SEE the world with the photographer's eye.
I'm SEEING lots of mosaic color this morning with the morning sun making the trees in the front glow.
I sound like a broken record with all the ooing and awing I do.

The shadows are lovely, Sandra. Kudos to you for seeing and photographing them. :))

Debra Dickinson said...

Okay Sandra, edumacate the non-snapper here.... I love the picture and the progressive on the close-ups but what is it about the shadows? Just sign me, dense. LOL.

Linda said...

That's a fine tree. I like the shadows and also what looks like a hole in the trunk. I wonder what creature lives there?

Rose said...

I would love to be sitting there in that first shot, in a swing, with my kindle and a glass of iced tea!
