Shadow Shot Sunday



Tracy does such a good job hosting Shadow Shot Sunday over at Hey Harriet. She has a gallery of previous Shadow Shots from the week before.





These medallions hang on the fence around the Queens Botanical Garden in Flushing, N.Y. They point out the names of flowers and plants along with their Latin names. I took these photos last Fall before everything died and the snows came. I'm looking forward to visiting the Garden in a month or two when Spring arrives!

The iconic Queens Botanical Gardens was listed as one of the 10 Great Public Spaces for 2009 on Oct. 7, bringing the total number of “great places” in New York State to six.

Lovely shadow shot. My eye just doesn't seem to see shadows when I take photos. Hope I can educate myself to see them. Looks like a garden I would love to visit.

Not a great linguist, me, thus the first picture baffled me: I mean the only difference is "belgii" vs "New York". Couldn't be the way to say "New York" in Latin...
