Happy Friday!

September 18th, 2009 · 9 Comments

I’m trying to capture shadows.  It reminds me of when my kids were younger and we would be outside waiting for the school bus.  The early morning sun cast our shadows on our driveway.  We would run and jump and try to land on each other’s shadows.  We’d be saying, “Get off my head, get off my legs!”  It was a fun way to start the day.

I hope there is some running and jumping, and some beautiful shadows and light, in your weekend!

Oh, and please ignore the dust on my plants.  Somehow I can always find something better to do than dust my plants!

Happy Friday!

    first of the dust does not show up in these very artistic shots …the long slender parts of the plants create just stunning shadows.yes.happy.friday.

    My goodness Gayle. I’d be worried if your plants were dust free. Happy weekend to you too!

    Cool shadow shots :-)

    My favourite shadows are the ones that make my body look long and thin :-)

    I love your shadow game. I can just picture it now. I can’t wait till high noon tomorrow so I can teach Sloane. Imagine us laughing like loons and playing your game.

    Me too, I am not good at dusting plants!

    I love the warm glowy feel to these shots, so perfect and cozy!

    Thanks for reminding me of those fun times of shadow chasing, I am off to drag the kids outside and do just that!
