Shadow Shot Sunday #16

Welcome to the Father’s Day edition of Shadow Shot Sunday! Not that SSS differs this week to any other, it just so happens to be Father's Day today. Father’s Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide but here in Australia and in New Zealand it’s always celebrated on the first Sunday of September. While on the subject of fathers, I just read a beautiful post on The Silly BooDilly blog that Victoria had written about her dad. If you’ve not read it I encourage you to do so as it’s really very touching and lovely. It brought a little tear to my eye. Well, a happy Father’s Day to all the Aussie and New Zealand dads today! Especially to my dad! Love you dad! Not that my dad reads my blog. I’m not sure my dad even knows what a blog is. Now shifting the focus away from the dads and onto the shadows! The Shadow Gallery collages feature photos from participants from last Sunday and also a couple of shots from the SSS archives that hadn’t been collaged. If you’d like to participate in SSS, shoot a shadow, post it on your blog on Sunday (or close to Sunday), add your link to Mr Linky, visit other players, and have fun!

Happy SSS! And a Happy Father's Day to your side of the world!

A great job once again on the collages Harriet, love how they turn out every week! And love your SS with all the colours, the blue, green, orange, and even a pop of red! Great photo, it's going to look awesome in next week’s college! :D

Congratulations on your awards, you most certainly deserve them! And thank you once again for passing them on to the SSS participants, you're very generous to do so! :)

Your shot reminds me something out of Dr. Suess or Willy Wonka! How cute is THAT?? Looks like a painting to me!

Thanks for putting together the beautiful collages this week...21 participants..woo hoo!!!

Any Occasion Boutique said...

Adore this Shadow Shot! The whole pic is so interesting! Outside your cafe where your pics are?

Hey Harriet said...

Greyscale

Close guess Gemma, the shot was taken in the same street but further along, outside a different cafe :)

Paz said...

I echo the sentiments above. Happy Father's Day to all in your part of the world. You always do a wonderful job putting the entries together. Thank you!

Last, congrats on your award and THANK YOU for passing it on to us! xxoo

amy said...

It isn't Sunday yet here and I'd like to participate. Can I send in a photo for next Sunday?

cybill said...

Oh the Poetics of Space shadow shots are divine. When are you going to sell the prints?!

shells said...

Ahhhh, it's pretty photos day! I do like shadows :)
And you've just reminded me that I should make a phone call to my Dad....I would bet my life that he has no idea what a blog is, either. God, love 'em <3

Hey Harriet said...

Cybill

Nice idea about selling the prints but they're not my images to sell. If you're seriously interested in buying prints just contact the individual photographers (all the links are there) & they may be happy to sell you a print :)

Ali said...

I love the colours in your shot this week Tracy! No ss for me this week ... I really hate to miss one, but the weekend has been too much, I might post on during the week when I have my strength back ;)

Sweet Repose said...

What awesome little trees, all decked out in their striped uniforms. The collage look wonderful as usual, I see there are some I missed, guess I will have to check them out in the wee hours also...great job...and have I mentioned that I stop dead in my tracks for that great shadow shot, not to mention crawling around my yard like a crazed fool, you have opened our eyes. Thanks.

Happy Dad's Day!

Elizabeth said...

Congratulations on your awards!
Happy Father's day.
Was amused that you say your father won't read your blog!
Best wishes anyway and many thanks for the wonderful colleges, as ever.

Debbie said...

Happy Father's Day and congratulations on the awards! I love your SS. Off to see some more...

Happy Fathers Day to your Dad, and thank you so much for acknowledging mine, that was very sweet of you!

Super shadow shots. I love yours! Great colors, shapes and lines!

Happy SSS and a Happy Father's Day! (belated)

I am glad I see my tree on your collage and the link to my blog. Thank you! I appreciate it so much!

Have a nice weekend!

Sara Chapman said...

Found your Shadow meme idea and love it, and really love your site. The photo collages are superb! Very, very beautiful. You've given me lots of creative ideas and I hope to participate soon. Happy you for still having a dad . . .

Sara Chapman said...

Okay, now I have a shadow shot up but not sure if leaving this comment gets me on the participant list. I think I'm missing something here. Well, anyone who reads this, come see my first try at this meme if you like.
