Unfortunately I've only been back online for a few hours so I didn't have time to check in and collage shadow shots from those who participated last week. These collages feature shots from the previous Sunday as I'd already saved these images before my computer problems. I noticed a few new participants added their links to Mr Linky last week. Thanks heaps for joining in and welcome aboard! I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to visit many blogs yet. I have a lot of catching up to do now! It's so nice to be back!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #50



I included the second photo just in case you were curious about what was casting those pretty round shadows. Pretty round lanterns! These red lanterns are hanging all through Southbank Parklands as part of the current Buddha Birth Day celebration. I attended the festival on Friday and took many photos, so I'll post some more during the week. If you're a local and haven't been to the festival yet, it's still on today, with fireworks tonight to close the festivities. It's a lot of fun! Especially the International food fair! Yummy!

Happy Sunday!

Welcome back Tracy! You have been missed! Hope your computer works like a charm from now on. (Geez, I hope Sam wasn't tinkering with it while you were at work!) Those polka dot shadows are as cool as can be, and I'd have never guessed that they were made from strings of chinese lanterns. Fabulous!

Tom Hilton said...

So glad to see your long computer nightmare is over (I hope), and you're back in the game! And of course, thanks for all the work you do organizing this and putting together those great collages.

That is a great shot, and I'm with Victoria--I'd never have guessed the source of the shadow.

sarayutouched said...

bobbie said...

Love your polka dot shadows.

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

I love that shot! Would have been very mysterious had you not shown us the second photo. How pretty the Southbank Parklands must be with all those lanterns hanging about! I love festivals...and festival food;o Can't wait to see and read more about it in the coming week.
I'm glad you're back:D

Rinkly Rimes said...

What a good idea! To show us the actual 'shadower'!

Very cool circular shadows. The lanterns remind me of candies.

Margaret Gosden said...

Spectacular shadows. Nice when there is a story line, too.

Missed you T! good to have you back.

smashing photo. That street's got a polka-dotted sense of style :)

Whew! I thought the Wicked Computer of the East had gobbled you up. Welcome back to the Land of Blog. Naturally, you hit us once again with an artistic, original shadow shot. It's so good to have you back!

So glad you're back Harriet and your computer is fixed! My shadows are yp for your perusal! Your shadows are awesome and thanks for posting the lanterns so I know what made the shadows... :)

Wow, you DO have the coolest shadow shots, no doubt! I really like this one (I'm sure I say that often for your shadows, but each time I mean it just as much).

Happy Sunday!

O it's good to find you back! I even intended to write a comment and put a link in last Sunday's post ifyou weren't here!

Love your lantern shadows! Like a fantasy world!

M.Kate said...

Welcome back, we've missed you too much and these red lanterns are the prettiest ever. We have next Saturday to celebrate Buddha's birthday, which will be a public holiday..Saturdays are not public holiday here, so yay..to more holidays. Great shot T.

That is the chicken said...

Glad you're back! Pretty round shadows from pretty red bubbles! Love it!

XUE said...

yippee! yippee! Tracy's back! I'm doing a "welcome back" jig for you in my almost-neat studio! Who would have guessed that the dotted shadows came from pretty Chinese lanterns!

storyteller said...

Wonderful Shadow Collages! I'm delighted your computer's working again. Love your Shadow Shot for today and appreciate you sharing the source in the second photo.
Hugs and blessings,

Chrisy said...

Pleased to see that you've whipped that computer into shape! Lovin your shot of the lanterns...and that one of the marbles in a collage is a fav...

Shannon said...

VERY cool round shadows! LOVE it!!!

Very frustrating being off the air due to technical difficulties! The lantern shadows are lovely as are the lanterns!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, I'm so glad your computer problems have been solved! I know only too well what that's like! I love your shadow shots -- both of them! Great colors in the lanterns. Thanks for hosting this meme, it's the most fun I've had since I took up photography for the first time about six months ago. Never had so much fun, aside from blogging itself!

twinklestarart said...

You always seem to find the most amazing shadows to shoot. I'm glad you included the second photo, I would have been sitting here scratching my head for ages. Now that I know what it is, I can go and have my afternoon nap :)

Hope you and your computer are feeling much better this week.

Raven said...

Glad your computer has recovered. Thanks for sharing the red lanterns that made the shadows. Fun to see what was creating those interesting patterns.

As always, I love your collages, whatever week they come from.

Carin said...

Glad to see you got your computer fixed. Funny eh how we can't seem to do without a PC anymore.

Thanks for sharing the second picture too for the first one would have set me of wondering. That festival sounds like fun, looking forward to more pictures. Will be back this week to see.

Glad you're back up and running! I'm playing along, and it is really a fun exercise to LOOK for shadows. Love it!

And I never would have figured your shadow out without the explanation. The lanterns are a great shot, too!

MonikaRose said...

Hello, I have just joined your SSS today. I hope I have done this correctly. Added your SSS button to my blog and posted my first SSS #1 photo and added my link to Mister Linky.
I have been wanting to do this for a long time and finally I had the time today. :) I love taking photos and have many shadow shot opportunities around my home and on my travels.
Welcome back after your comp break down, I know and have been there.
I like visiting your blog and seeing the collage's you put together. Will look forward to each week. Thank you for this opportunity to share my photos and blog with others.
Have a Fantastic day :)

You read my mind -- I was trying to figure out the circle shadows! Thanks for your visit to my blog and your oh-too-kind compliment on my photos. Maybe one of these days I'll get good enough to submit one to SSS. Yours are always AMAZING!
