Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #90



These photos were taken at QPAC (Queensland Perfoming Arts Centre) and the first is a cafe at the far right of the building. I didn't stop in at that cafe because all the green was making me dizzy. The second was taken while enjoying a coffee at the other cafe towards the left end of the building. I liked looking up at all of the coloured lights reflected in the glass windows of QPAC. I also very much liked their caramel tarts. Yummy!

Some photos from my etsy shop have been included on some lovely sites over the last couple of weeks, for which I'm very grateful. Thanks to Julia for the feature on Ramblings of a Gallivanting Girl, and to Terri for the inclusion on Living A Handmade Life. Also thank you to Anna from Much Love for the opportunity to have one of my photos displayed as part of her wonderful Much Love Monday project. A little while back I was contacted with regards to one of my photos on Flickr being shortlisted for inclusion in the Schmap Brisbane Guide and I was just informed of it being chosen and published in the 10th edition. Yay! And a big thanks to Anne from Frayed at the Edge for passing a Kreativ Blogger award my way. I really didn't mean for this ramble to turn into some exercise in tootin' my own horn. Really I didn't. Little acknowledgements such as those mentioned above make me very happy and I am extremely grateful for any that come my way. And I simply wanted to share my happiness. With you. Because happiness is a good thing to share.

Happy Sunday!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Congrats on all of the exposure - you deserve it Tracy!!
Love your green picture...we were thinking green as well today :)
Happy SSS!

keiren said...

That's wonderful news and I'm happy you shared it! I've just just been browsing your shop for the first time in a while and have spotted so many things I want. I haven't logged onto etsy since last year and I hope I can remember my password! I like both of your shadow photos. Happy Sudnay to you too!

Tom Hilton said...

Love that green one. And congratulations on all the (well-deserved) honors!

Bentley's Photoblog said...

It's been so long since I stopped in and said hi. I've been lurking blogs and not commenting but wanted to break my silence and say congrats. It's great to see SSS still going strong and I hope to rejoin the fun of it all again soon!

Ralph said...

The setting around and surrounding the restaurant is fabulously artistic. The shadows make stripes that blend perfectly with the angular horizontal tables and vertical columns, a geometric delight.

It is okay to beep your horn. We have seen a brief glimpse of your photographic artistry in your blog, and it is great - you deserve all the recognition. No need to be modest!

Enjoy your week Tracy!

Catherine said...

congrats on being published...and thanks for the collages and great shots again this week...

Chrisy said...

I do like to hear the sound of a good toot so toot on baby...maybe Wayne Newton's Danke Schoen...I've never noticed the green at that restaurant...always been there at nighttime...but agree......nothing lake basking in a green glow to make a person look at tad peeked...

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

That's awesome, Tracy? Hope more readers and hope no whinning with the comments, huh? *wink

You get dizzy with the green? He he... you're funny lady. But I guess you choose the right cafe though.

Like the reflections of the coloured bulbs.

Thanks once again for sharing the enjoyment on week-end.

xoxo lots...

Golden West said...

It's wonderful to hear that your hard work and talent are getting rewarded - congratulations! And again, thank you for hosting us all with the shadow shots.

sunnymama said...

Not sure if I would want to stop for long for a coffee there but I love the effect of the colours in the first picture and the shadows in both pictures are great! Hope you have a good weekend. :)

Generik said...

Congratulations! That's a lot of happiness to share, and well-deserved!

Sylvia K said...

Congratulations, Tracy! That is fabulous and what a lot of well-deserved kudos for your marvelous photos and your blog! Thanks for the fun, as always! Hope your weekend is a great one!

Sylvia

frayedattheedge said...

Well done!! Super photos as always!!

storyteller at Small Reflections said...

If you can't toot your own horn on your own blog, there's something wrong with the world ... seriously! Love your artsy photos and enjoyed the Shadow Galley as always. Congratulations on your growing success and exposure ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Beverley Baird said...

Contratulations! Lots of recognition for some fabulous photos!
Love the photos for today.
Take care. have a great weekend.

Quasi Serendipita said...

Congratulations! (Will now go & check out your etsy shop!)

Dimple said...

I wondered why the cafe was tipsy, now I know it's because it made the photographer dizzy! LOL! Thanks for hosting the fun meme.

jabblog said...

Many congratulations on being more widely recognised and honoured.
I see what you mean about the green cafe - 'tis a little 'exciting'. Great shadow shots, as ever :-)

Rosebud Collection said...

Congratulations my dear friend..and you are so right..Happiness is a good thing to share..
Great Shots as usual and always fun to visit with you again..
xoxoRosebud.
Happy SSS.

Christine said...

Congratulations Tracy. You rightfully deserve all the recognition you're receiving. Thank you for keep us all connected and creative.

Hot Fudge said...

You blow away, Satchmo, you deserve all the accolades you receive.

I must say I've never noticed before how green was their cafe. You'd think the proprietors would be wondering about the empty seats, wouldn't you?

Lindz said...

that greeny outdoor restaurant is fantastic.,,, you have great collection fo photos.

Hot Fudge said...

Hi Tracy, it's me again with a word of warning. I entered this week's Mr Linky, but it linked to my last entry, as I had followed the advice to enter the particular post for that week and not my blog URL. Apparently it kept the old link for this week, so I had to re-enter this week's entry with the correct link.

Sorry to rabbit on, but I wanted to explain why I have two entries for this week. The second one is correct. The end.

Patti said...

I'm glad that you shared your happiness. You shared more of yourself with your readers and blog friends. That's good thing.

Congrats on all the mentions, Tracy. Well deserved.

That green would not make me feel relaxed at all, even though I think green is supposed to be a soothing color. I do like the colored lights in the second photo.I can't tell which is the reflection.

Carin said...

Can imagine the green made you dizzy, still it makes a lovely shadow shot! You're so lucky to have such nice sunny weather! Also congratulations with everything you tooted your own horn with! Things to be proud off!

Have a nice week!

Guy D said...

This is quickly becoming one of my favourite meme's of the week. Great pics once again everyone and thanks alot for this theme.

All the best

Sweet Repose said...

Isn't it funny how sometimes green can make you queezy...right now I'll take anything green over the drab dead things and the white cold stuff...come on SPRING!!!

Have a wonderful week Tracie!

Greyscale Territory said...

I agree with you about your overwhelming green cafe! Interesting to look at but I would feel a little "uncomfortable" about eating/drinking there! The "light" cafe is a winner and love the shadow effects in both!

Glad you told us about your successes! It's inspiring! We must blow our own trumpet a little sometimes just to let others know what else we do! Congratulations!

Happy weekend!

Clau! said...

I like the heart shape with the hands, so cute!

Stine in Ontario said...

It's OK if you toot your own horn, really it is! :)

Gallery Juana said...

yes ... Toot Away! You deserve to do so.

I had to laugh when you said you were made dizzy by all the green. The green certainly makes this photo pop.

Thanks for including my door pic in this week's photo montage. The montages give me a better understanding of everyone's interpretation of the meme and the subjects that they choose. Lot's to be inspired by.

Sam said...

Ooooh! Congrats on all thos features and especially on being part of the Brisbane guide!! How cool is that? Will go check out these links you have here!

I'm sorry that green glass made you feel woozy - I was thinking how pretty it was!

It's been bucketing down here in Sydney - thankfully! Apparently it's the edge of the storms from Queensland but you say you've not had any rain this weekend...?

Love to you Tracy - gorgeous collages as always!! Have a terrific week!

Cassie said...

Wow Tracy! I really like the cafe shot. The shadows are so intermeshed with the furnishings and architecture. Very cool.

Victoria said...

We just got hit with 2 feet of snow, so white is making me dizzy these days, and that green cafe looks so inviting to me! (Trade ya!)

Congrats Tracy, on all the attention and love... it is well deserved!

Sarah said...

Indeed it is! I see what you mean about all the green-but it looks lovely and fresh-good for a cafe I think. I like coloured lights wherever they may be so the second shot makes me smile too!

Christine said...

L-O-V-E the patio shot, the mix of greens, white, and shadow is perfect! Great compostion and contrast of lines. Happy SSS!

Icy BC said...

Wow...I love the colors in this photos! They are gorgeous!

High Desert Diva said...

I'm glad you're getting some well deserved attention!

What is with all the green in that cafe shot anyway? Can't figure out if it is light reflections or colored patio flooring....

Janie said...

The beams in the first shot make nice linear shadow patterns.
Really like all of the reflections in the second shot.

chubskulit said...

Way to go Harriet, congratulations!

MY Shadow Shot Sunday

Square Peg Guy said...

"...all the green was making me dizzy." Maybe that explains why the photo is at such a cool angle!

Thanks so much for featuring my SS from one week ago. One of my readers said it reminded her of her childhood -- it was like a tree at her grandma's house.

My photo for this week will show up in about two hours, but I'll go ahead and do the Linky thing now.

All the best!

Lily Hydrangea said...

You are so right Tracy, happiness is a good thing to share as you do so every week with this fun meme!
& congratulations for all your success!
I love the lovely shades of green in your 1st shadow shot & the purple greys & lights in your second. Very fabulous.
: )

wanderlust said...

Lovely greens! Such interesting lines and angles, too. Have a fun weekend!

Paula Scott said...

I guess all that green would make one dizzy! Especially in the heat of summer. I can feel the heat just by looking at the photo!
Like the theater shots too.
Congrats on the publication!!! Wooo Hoo!!!!!

Birgitta said...

Congratulations :)

Great shadow shots here!

BLOGitse said...

WOW, I'm happy for you, congrats!
Toot toot, no problem!

Green dizziness - that is quite a lot of green in that small area. Would make me nuts - green grass is ok but enough is enough...

Have a great Sunday!

Tammy said...

I rather like the green!! Great shots!

Paz said...

LOL! The green made you sick, huh? I suppose the designers didn't think about the color making anyone sick. ;-)

Congrats on all the good things happening to you. Keep sharing it with us.

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Hey Harriet! Shadow Sunday is such a lovely idea. The photos are always interesting. I've been showing spiritual photos on Sunday in what I call Sacred Sunday. However, surely I can find a shadowy, spiritual, thought providing shot! Food for thought!

Stéphanie said...

JLS Hall (Joysweb) said...
