Brenda Photo Challenge : SHADOWS

It's time again to view some wonderful snaps taken by some delightful bloggers. Miz Lynn is our hostess for the Brenda Photo Challenge this time. She chose Shadows as our prompt. It was a load of fun looking for shadows these past two weeks. Please thank Miz Lynn and hop over to the Brenda Photo Challenge Blog so that you can click on the other participants in the comments section.




I tried to capture the cool shadows looking down into this creek from atop a little bridge.

I've posted photos that I've taken along "Lost Road" before. I especially love driving through here in the Fall. The sun was high and the trees that grow along side the road cast wonderful shadows.
This eerie lady looks out from the second story window of a closed antique shop on Cherry Street in Helena, Arkansas. I imagine she feels as abandoned as much of the rest of the street due to there not being nearly the businesses there now as there once was. I thought she looked lonely standing there in the shadows gazing out at what used to be a bustling river town.

He Shoots!

He scores?!

Hi!
Great shadows! I really like the one of the lady standing in the window. She does look awfully lonely! Have a great day!

Ms Brenda, you outdid yourself on this challenge; I LOVE all of them!! But, Zach most of all!

When the "lady" was loading for me, my first thought was "OMG that's Nicole Kidman". hahahaha

Did he score? He should have... he's practically even with the goal! That's the fun of shadows... they don't always reflect reality... I like long skinny shadows!!!!

My favorites are of the road... I love that road and have only seen it through your camera lens. I would like to stick my piggies in that stream!

The creek looks so cool and inviting; I did a road shot too but forgot to include - something about a shady road in the wilderness is enchanting; and the "he shoots," "he scores" is very cute.

All of your photos are great but I love the Lost Road. I want to follow it and see where it will lead.

Donna said...

This makes me want to take the dirt road also. I just came back from vacation in Vermont where they are pretty much all dirt roads.
