Shadow Shot Sunday

Take away love, and our earth is a tomb.
~Robert Browning





Hey Harriet hosts Shadow Shot Sunday, a fun meme whose title speaks for itself.

This week I was in Florida for a few days and I kept my eyes open for shadow shots. Here are 3:

What I noticed is that the shadows are particularly sharp and dark. I guess because the sun is so strong.

Great shots! I'm particularly fond of the potted palm or whatever it is. :) Shadows are so nifty...

It's good to know it's not snowing everywhere in the States! Lovely, warm shots.

I can almost feel the heat off the bricks...and the fire ants from the Everglades below...you lucky stiff, I miss Florida soooo much!

Fun shots!

Bobbi said...

That first one looks like a cityscape! Cool. It looks awfully warm there!!!!!

Sandra Ree said...

The beach makes the best shadow shots! Love the Robert Browning quote!

The sun looks very bright. Nothing like sunshine in winter (or a trip to Florida for that matter)

Carletta said...

Such warmth generating from these shots! :)
I can't help but notice the umbrella shadow looks almost like a large bird!!

I joined for the first time - my shots are much 'colder' than yours.

These are great. They warm me up. Which I appreciate because I am so cold I am in bed with a heating pad just to pretend there is a thing called August. Thanks for these, Mary.

Jill said...

It was 50 here today!! and I thought the sun was strong--ha--now Florida-that is a strong sun. Great shadows.

The shadows on the bricks on top are wonderful. I love that the angle shows the curve in the bushes, although the bushes look straight. Clear and dark is right! More south really makes a diff.

Hey Harriet said...

Wow! Looks like Florida is a great place for shooting shadows! I love these! I also love the Robert Browning quote. And the quote and pic in your header. I've only just noticed your new header!

Aaaaaaaaaah, Florida sunshine. You lucky gal! The shadows are the kind that make you long for warm weather. Just lovely.

And your quotes: you've really outdone yourself with marvelous quotes.

Happy Sunday, Mary. Have a great week. Looking forward to Ruby.

Bonjour Mary
A sun umbrella ? and a palm tree ?
Those are shadows I would like to watch more often at this time !
Perfect for Florida.
Don't try to find mine, I don't participate, too much grey weather here. But I have a quetion for you Mary, as I'm always away from the point concerning the subject of Ruby Tuesday, is there a specific theme this week ?

Paz said...

Lovely shadow shots! I can feel the warmth of the sun, too.

Great choices! Love the palm tree. :-)

So, now that my internet is back (it died on me about 2 weeks ago) I

1.) want to know: "How are you and yours?"
2.) Look forward to joing Ruby Tuesday and Sepia Scenes again :-)
