Shadow Shot Sunday

I currently have a real fascination with Light/Shadow photography, initially inspired by the many gorgeous photos that capture the play between light & shadow so beautifully on The House in Marrakesh blog. Super fab blog filled with stunning images. Love it! So now I'm going to attempt to play around and take some Light/Shadow style photos and post one on my blog each Sunday. If anyone else wants to play "Shadow Shot Sunday" and post your photos on your blog that would be great! Let me know so that I can check them out! Here's my first one...


Edit 25th September - I've created this Shadow Shot Sunday button.


If you would like to display this button on your site that would be great. To do this you'll need to copy and paste the following code.

<a href="http://heyharriet.blogspot.com/"><center><img src=" http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_M8WxkxV2KxY/SNs-hds3IJI/AAAAAAAAAgg/AVNPLP2cgS8/S220/Shadow"/></center></a>

If you'd like to display the linky button in the body of a blog post, paste the code directly into your post wherever you'd like the button to appear.

If you'd like to display the linky button in the sidebar of your blog, click on 'customize' then click 'add a gadget' then choose the 'HTML/JavaScript' option and paste the code directly into the content section. This will work for Blogspot/Blogger blogs but I'm unsure about how things work on other types of blogs.

Any problems please feel free to email me. My email link can be found in the 'Contact' tab. A big thanks to Paz for suggesting I create a Shadow Shot Sunday button!

Added 27th December 08

Shadow Shot Sunday info:

1. Please only submit your link AFTER you’ve posted your shadow shot to your blog/site, and ONLY if you are participating in the Shadow Shot Sunday meme. It is not a requirement that you link back to this blog (although a big thanks to those who do as it is appreciated!) but you do need to mention somewhere in your post that you are participating in Shadow Shot Sunday. An easy way of doing this is to display the SSS button. Again, it doesn't even need to link back. Just some sort of mention is required. If not, your link will be deleted. That's fair enough isn't it? I think so.

2. The SSS posts are published early Sunday mornings Australian time. Don’t worry about the time zone difference as you may participate Sunday Australian time or Sunday your time (which may be Monday Aussie time if you’re from America). Mr Linky closes each week on Monday evening Australian time and all blog/site urls submitted will be exported as 'live' html links and will remain displayed on the SSS post that they were submitted to.

3. I copy/save a selection of the shadow shots for inclusion in the collages with links back to the individual blogs/sites by way of crediting participants. If you’d rather that I not include your photo but you’d still like to participate in SSS that’s certainly fine. If that’s the case, simply leave me a comment or email me (link in top of sidebar) letting me know not to include your photo.

4. Mr Linky saves your details from the previous week, so if you’ve added a static page url rather than your standard blog url be sure to change it when adding again. If you make a mistake with adding your link just add it again with a note next to your name saying “correct link” and I’ll delete the other when I get a chance. Or feel free to email me if you have any problems with anything.

That’s all folks. Now go shoot dem shadows!

Update 8th July 2010

I've just created another little SSS button, so feel free to use this one instead of the older one if you'd prefer.

Beautiful shot!

By the way, have you ever seen the movie The Third Man, with Orson Wells? It is one of my favorite movies, partially because of all the exquisite shots of light and shadow. Really brilliant.

Hey Harriet said...

Victoria - Oh yes yes yes! Love The Third Man! Haven't seen it for ages, so thanks for mentioning it. I'm needing to watch it again :)

I would like to participate this week. I've seen this meme around for awhile and I love taking (amateur) shadow shots myself. I might not play every Sunday but once in a while would be a refreshing change. Thanks for starting such a cool photo meme.

RNSANE said...

I never seem to be able to find the Mr. Linky. I have posted before and I have my shadow shots for today's post but how do I post it.

Tania Palermo said...

Hi! I'm wondering how to get the code for the new SSS linky button?
Thank you!

RNSANE said...

I don't know why I can never find the Mr. Linky to post to the current Shadow Shot Sunday. Please help me and tell me what I am doing wrong. It is 9:19AM in San Francisco and I have been to the site at least ten times and I don't see it.

My post is at:

http://rnsane.blogspot.com/2011/02/shadow-shot-sunday-144-cheers-february.html#links

This is the situation every time I try to do a Shadow Shot posting lately though I have post successfully in the past. I like the meme but it is frustrating to complete the blog post and not find the Mr. Linky.

Emily's Snapshots said...

today is my first time posting a shadow shot!

anna maria said...

Hi, just discovered Shadow Shot Sunday, via Christine's Raven Ridge Gardens blog and I have now added a photo to my blog, added the badge and clicked on Mr. Linky. Hope I did everything correctly!
By the way, how do I get the code for the badge with the shoes. All I could find is the code for the other one.
Thanks.

I should add that I had to bribe my teenagers to participate in this shot, it was taken on Mother's Day 2011 on the 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach, California

Teresa said...

Hi! A friend referred me to this site after seeing a photo I had taken. I, however, do not have a blog to link to. Is there any other way to submit my photo? Thanks so much. Have a lovely evening. ~Teresa
