Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #92



Some flag shadows outside the Qld Art Gallery promoting the APT 6 exhibition. If you're a local and haven't yet been, get yourself there asap. It's so very very good! Still plenty of time as it doesn't end until 5th April.


A short walk from the flags is this sculpture. Nothing to do with APT 6. It resides in that spot permanently.

Bad joke alert!
The two little kids who found themselves in a modern art gallery by accident:
"Quick," said one, "Run! Before they say we did it!"

Happy Sunday!

love the flag's shadows and the sculpture whose shadow seem to make it more interesting than it might be without them.

sarayutouched said...

great chunky sculpture shadow.
hope your weekend was great tracy!!!

Paula Scott said...

Fabulous shots as always! A very generous serving of shadow shots-I love them!

LDH said...

Each flag shadow lined up in a row ~ parallelogram in a rectangle. Nice :)

Ralph said...

Lovely flags in their own right, and the shadows are wonderful. Seemingly modern art in their own style, we are compelled to visit the exhibit. Alas, the 11000 miles from here to there means that I may miss. But perhaps be there to see the museum someday...

The permanent sculpture is nice, massive yet delicately perched above the sidewalk. And a lovely shadow!

Deb said...

cute joke...great photos...

Patti said...

Cute joke ;-)

You captured a nice neat row of flag shadows!

That sculpture is cool. Reminds me of a bird.
I like how it seems suspended.

jabblog said...

Nicely regimented banners!
The sculpture invites clambering and sliding;-)

Dina said...

Your post makes me want to fly right down to see the exhibit.
And the joke has a lot of truth. I'll send it to my grandsons. :)

Shalom to you and all.

Sylvia K said...

Fantastic shadow shots! Love the banners and the sculpture! They're so crisp and clear! Thanks as always for the fun and I hope you have a great day -- when you get up that is!

Sylvia

Sweet Repose said...

Love the joke...I'd say, 'my lil' brother did it'...ha!

You always give the best tours with your shadows friend!!! Thanks again!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Looks like a great place to be... especially since it has something we haven't seen much of...sunshine!

BTW... ignore #17 link everyone... clicked on the wrong link the first time!
Happy SSS!

Beverley Baird said...

What crisp, dark shadows! Look at that sky!
Wonderful shots!

Jen said...

Great shots--
concrete back drops for shadows are the best. ;)
lol on your joke,

frayedattheedge said...

Super shadows - and that's my kind of joke!!

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

You really have a very sunny day, huh? Warm, hot & sweaty, as I can feel here.

Know why? coz I can see in your very strong and crispy shots.

§:-) take not T! UR funny too? I like that.

Take care and have a blissful Sunday.

Hugs to mate!
xoxo

Birgitta said...

Excellent shadow shots!

Have a wonderful Sunday :)

Joops said...

Love the last shot!

Mine is Here

Carin said...

Love those flags shadows, so clear and crisp! and that sculptures shadow makes it look as if the sculpture continues in the ground! Great shots!

Enjoy your Sunday and have a good week!

chubskulit said...

Thanks for the humor, I love that last photo!

Flowers in the Walkwaysis my contribution to SSS.

Sam said...

Very good banner shots! I've heard about the exhibitions you've been having up there in Brisbane and it sounds like the QLD gallery has been putting on some fine shows. There have been a few times when I've thought "Hmmm, that sounds interesting, maybe I should pop up?"

Thank you for including me! I think that top one is my fave with the cherry blossom and the snowy tree.

How's your weather? The weather here has been cooler and (saints be praised!) non humid!! It's been bliss actually! However, I'm not going to get too excited because I know the heat and humidity doesn't go for good until Feb is well over and it sometimes continues into March.

Hope you're having a lovely relaxing weekend! XOXO's

Tom Hilton said...

Love that first banner shadow shot.

Rosebud Collection said...

The flags sure gave a beautiful shadow. You know, you really have many wonderful things there to take pictures of. Boy, are we boring here..
Happy SSS.
love the joke.

sunnymama said...

Love your shadow shots and there are some really pretty shadows in the collages too. :)

Gunsside said...

Funny shadow shot
Have a nice weekend ;)

Hot Fudge said...

How lucky were you Tracy to be in the right spot when the sun came out for five minutes last week. I on the other hand had to wade ankle deep through water to reach my car at a friend's house, and then just made it across the overflowing creek on her property before it was cut off from the main road. One of my friends decided to visit the bathroom before she left and she was stranded - 5 minutes later!

I will make a point of visiting the gallery - thanks for the tip-off. Oh, and cute joke.

Jacqui said...

Still so summery there - great shadows as always and funny wee joke at the end. x

Greyscale Territory said...

It is so long since I have been to an art gallery! Always an enchanting place to feel creative ideas alive! Love the shadows from the flags and sculpture! Unique and interesting shapes! And that "bad joke" is just priceless! Great fun conclusion to your post! Happy weekend!

toby said...

Excellent shadows - I like them a lot! And the joke was a good one too, I'll pass it on to my kids :)

Faith Hope and a whole lotta Love said...

Cool sculpture shadow!! & love your joke! hehe!

Terri said...

Ooo wonderful shadow choices this week! I haven't played for awhile, but could not resist the shadows around here today!

readingsully2 said...

Thanks for including my little sea dragon in your gallery. :)Nice crisp and clean shadow shot.

keiren said...

The collages are very pretty this week! I like your art gallery shadows and even your bad joke!

MyMaracas said...

Good joke - I know how those kids feel. Love that first shot, too!

Dimple said...

Nice shots! I like the first one best.

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

Great shadow shots of the banners. Do hope the exhibit is well attended. My god, what did those kids do!

Icy BC said...

Gorgeous shadow, and wonderful series of photos, Tracy!

Clau! said...

I like when animals are on the shadows pictures ñ_ñ

LADYHIGHTOWER said...

A nice line-up of arty flag shadows. The weather looks so perfect! Wish I could visit the exhibition. Happy Sunday to you!

Lily Hydrangea said...

Great shadow shots Miss Tracy! I love the large sculpture in the last photo.
& that art exhibit looks amazing. thanks for the link.
& Thank you for hosting this wonderful meme.
: )

BLOGitse said...

I like that sculpture! and your shadows :)
And the joke. It's good!
Sometimes modern art looks like...made by me! I could easily put cans on top each others, tight them with a rope and call it: treasure of trash. LOL!
Have a great Sunday!

Square Peg Guy said...

I like the banner shadows very much! I'm glad you have the two views so it's clear what made those shadows.

Gallery Juana said...

Ha Ha .... I always get a good laugh from your sense of humor.

My husband remembers a newspaper article about a mishap with a modern art sculpture.

The sculpture was made of donuts and had gotten thrown out by the custodian.

wanderlust said...

Very cool. Looks like a bright beautiful day!

Riet said...

I love those shadows , Great idea and shots

I guess I'm addicted to shadows now. Love them all!!
Cute joke...I feel the same way about certain modern art.hehe.

Chrisy said...

Gosh the shadows look long on that banner shot...makes me think of the cool weather to (hopefully) come...I've always loved that big sculpture and it behaves so well for photographs!

muchlove said...

Haha, that joke is cute..

oh, and btw, I've submitted my first Shadow Shot Sunday! yay!

Tracy said...

Hi there Tracy! Your flag shadow shots are wonderful, and just love all the abstract shadow play. Funny joke--tee-hee... Wonderful groups of shadows this week. What's really fun in all these photos is seeing the signs of spring mixed with snow and winter scenes. Thanks for another great week here... Hope you're having a good weekend, my friend :o) ((HUGS))

Spiderdama said...

The last one is very cool!
Have a nice sunday:-)

Sarah said...

Great flag shadows and I love the hunky sculpture too! I've been away in the East for 2 weeks & just got back & was so happy to see everyone's fantastic S-shots in the gorgeous collages. Hoping for some sunshine this new week! Blessings & thanks, Tracy!

Debbie said...

This was a really cool idea and I participated for the first time this week!! Looking thru my photo archives I never realized shadows, or should I say paid attention!!~ Thanks for opening my eyes to this:) Off to look at some more!!~

picciolo said...

Dorte said...

I looks so nice and sunny where you are ... great shadow shots as always. Have a great week :)

Great shadows and collages this week - like that final sculpture shot very much..

Clorivak said...

oooo...you got some totally interesting shadows going on...the flag ones people probably walk by everyday and don't notice..cheers for giving them credit!!!
and that joke totally was a groaner..hee, but made me chuckle inside. ;P

Sara Chapman in Seattle USA said...

Hi Tracy,

I didn't get to post any shadows this week but had to stop by and see what you had up. I like them, as always! And an unusually beautiful selection in the collages, but maybe I say that every time, also.

I'll do a shadow soon,

Sara

M.Kate said...

99 links again..and aw...I miss being no. 100 again! Cant believe I missed 2 posts here..but slowly I am crawling back to blog land..one week break seems like one month haha! Anyway, love the art shadows..seems like you are having good weather there,what's the season now? Love the last shadow..though I have no idea what that art is supposed to be haha :)

B : ) said...

thanks for taking the time to visit!

Stéphanie said...

So nice !

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

Hahaha:D

It looks like such a lovely day...the day you shot your shadows. I don't think I could have made myself go inside for art or anything else on a day like that. I would have to see the exhibit on a cold or rainy day. Can you tell I'm getting winter weary here?

Christine said...

Ooooh, So many nice shadow shots here! Love your flying sculpture at the end. And the joke? Kinda bad, but kinda cute too. I'm back home and have some shadow shots to share. "See" you Sunday.

Serendipity said...
