Shadow Shot Sunday #10

I’ve been very fortunate over the last few weeks with receiving blog awards. I received another during this week, which appears to be very similar to the one I posted about last Sunday. So perhaps I shouldn’t have accepted it, but I was so happy to receive this award because it’s from Elizabeth. Elizabeth’s The House in Marrakesh blog, for those who don’t know (and may not have read my first SSS post) was the inspiration behind this little Shadow Shot Sunday project. Since writing my first SSS post Elizabeth has moved from her beloved Morocco and is now living and blogging in New York. The sights and images featured on Elizabeth’s About New York blog are obviously vastly different to those of Morocco, but equally as exciting and inspiring to me. So, a huge and huggy heartfelt thanks to you Elizabeth. Not only for the award, but for simply being YOU. xo


As I already passed this award along last week I’ll not pass it on again. For those who received it last week, if a clumsy dog, cat, friend, child or significant other accidentally knocked it over and it shattered into a gazillion pieces, you need to worry about gluing it back together. Here is a nice shiny new replacement.

The Shadow Gallery collage this week features one photo from each of the participants from last Sunday. Thanks again y’all for playing! If you'd like to participate, shoot a shadow, post it on your blog on Sunday (or near enough to Sunday), add your link to Mr Linky and visit other participants. Have fun!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #10


I’ve noticed a few people composing poems to accompany their shadow shots. A really nice idea as I’ve always had an appreciation for poetry. I thought I’d give it a go and so here is my little poem that I wrote to go with my shadow shot this week.

In the palm of my hand,
a camera.
Now a palm in my hand,
in my camera.
Why did the palm cross the road?
To escape my poetry…
And to provide shade to a butt-of-all-jokes chick


Ok, I’ll never inflict upon you fine folk my poor attempts at poetry again. Promise! Happy Sunday!

lol, your poetry was sweet, Harriet! I'm terrible at poetry that's why I always borrow quotes for my posts. Love your shadow shot this week, one of the palm leaves looks like it is etched into the stone!

Another great job with the collage and congratulations on the award from Elizabeth!

rachel said...

photos of shadows are always intriguing.. it'd be nearly impossible to capture the same moment again.

Hope you have a great weekend! :)

Paz said...

LOL! Love your poetry and your latest shadow shot.

First, congrats on your award! Well deserved!

I did not pick up the award from you last week to all us Shadow Shot people because I felt guilty! I honestly believed your efforts running this prompt are far more deserving for it. I was simply posting shadow pics! But I felt honoured all the same!

Love your shadow pic and your poetry is very smiley stuff! It's hilarious! Keep writing it for fun! Poetry does not have to be serious all the time!

Ali said...

haha! Great poem Tracy!! I like your palm shot though (where was it taken - I'm trying to work it out?) Thanks for adding my link, I hope you didn't have bad dreams! ;)
Shame you weren't able to make it yesterday.
Happy Sunday!

Bec said...

Oh I love your poem!!! And what a fine collection of shots this week :)
And congratulations on yet another award - soon you will be so busy you will have to start asking B Grade bloggers to accept the award on your behalf :P

annette said...

Very amusing, please honour us with this wonderful poetry every week to accompany your photo!!;0) Very nice tropical looking shadow by the way. And congrats on another well deserved award!!Enjoy your weekend, oh and thanks for your lyrics last week, (wild thing) took me half an hour to work out what you were singing, i thought you were singing an Abba song and it just didn't ring any bells with me!! Finally realised when i was sitting on the loo!!Right enough information, i'm off!!

Elizabeth said...

You are very kind.
I loved your poem - linking palm and palm.
Very funny.
Your shadows were lovely.
Thank you for all the kind things you said.
I just did a Marrakech 'shadows' from the archives but I haven't posted these particular pictures before. Looking at the pictures makes me a bit nostalgic and sad.

Great shadow shots from everyone, and I think your poem is very humorous! It put a big 'ol smile on my face!

Do we have Poets Laureate in Australia? Think I'll send off your nomination to Kev Oh Seven so that you can perform your little gem at the next State Occasion.

By the way, I love the collage - what a creative collection. And, of course, congrats on yet another award!

M.Kate said...

Firstly, congrats on the award...am sure still plenty to come :)

Love the collage as usual. The SSS is great and even better with the poem, such a creative bunny. I posted my sss which I prepared last Wednesday...didnt bring the laptop and too busy to hop over to the biz centre. Kuching was fantastic, lots to blog about..hopefully when I recover from my 2 hour jet lag hahahahaaaaa!!

To be technical, Tracy, the botanic gardens belong to 'everyone'... so I really love this week's shadow shot, taken in 'your' garden! ;)

cybill said...

Of course you deserve all those awards, congratulations. This weeks Shadow Gallery is amazing.
