Shadow Shot Sunday is a feature brought to you by Tracy who started this Meme. Her blog is out of Australia, so many Shadow Shot Sunday submissions are posted on Saturdays here in the USA, like this one today. Have a visit to Hey Harriet to see many more fascinating photos and see if you’d like to participate, as all the guidelines are there as well.
Okay, so I have the fever. The Shadow Shot Fever. I’m out driving around or even going someplace in particular, and I take my camera. A blogger friend and regular SSS contributor, Molokai Girl, gave me some tips about how to use the style of camera I have. I believe she has one similar. In heeding her advice, I am more than satisfied with the results and enjoy using the camera and seeing the improvement overall.
So now, I’m not only looking for Shadow Shots, but I’m thinking about looking for Shadow Shots before I leave the house as I check out the position of the sun and which direction I might be heading. I may even plan a trip at a certain time to attempt to arrange the shadows I might see.
It’s a fever all right. Something I never would do while traveling, that is, turn around, is an everyday occurrence these days. That’s exactly what I did to capture these strong lined shadows on this dilapidated old structure along New Mexico State Highway 1, which runs North and South in the center of the state near to Interstate Highway 25. This was just South of Socorro. It was morning and I was headed back to Truth Or Consequences from Albuquerque.
I love the second photo, the one of the inside of the ceiling. I wasn’t sure what was the wooden timbers and what were shadows. If your computer has the capacity to do so, click on the photo a couple of times to bring the image close up and personal and have a look at the intricate cross section of wooden sticks used in this old stone and mud building.
Have a great day and happy shadow hunting.
