Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #94


It has been overcast and rather shadowless for the majority of this week so this is a photo I took a couple of weeks ago. This first week of autumn here in Brisbane has actually felt a little bit like autumn with the cooler temps. It was such a scorcher of a summer I feared it was going to continue and completely over-ride the colder seasons. I'm so glad that hasn't been the case! And if anybody catches me moaning about cold weather this winter please cyber-slap me or at least tell me to shoosh up pronto! I realise the piddly winter temps in Brisbane are nothing in comparison to what many of you folk across the pond have had to endure!

Giveaway!


If you would like to win this set of my Seagull TtV (Through the Viewfinder) photo prints head on over to this lovely blog to enter. It's easy peasy to enter with only one simple little question asked of entrants.

Happy Sunday!

Patti said...

For some reason that looked like a prehistoric creature to me at first.

I hope you have a lovely autumn! We're praying for Spring to arrive soon.

Thanks for this fun meme, Tracy. I see Ralph's van got in the collage.

Linda said...

Great shadow photos. Thanks for sharing these. I must have missed this before, but I'm going to watch for these now.

sarayutouched said...

it is amazing how we flow from one season to the next...so looking forward to spring. lovely photo ops await. have a great weekend.

Ralph said...

The shadow is lovely, even overcast skies can be bright enough for shadows. The subject looks like the upper jaw, the shadow looks like it is sticking hits tongue out. At least that is what I saw...

Congrats on the cooler temperature. In any climate, people find the weather an issue, and babble on about how bad it is - or hopefully, is not. I'd enjoy a hot day at the beach in March up here!

Dina said...

Hello again and thanks again for collecting so many fun shadows in one place.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Am always glad coming in here seeing your growing SS chasers, huh?

Every shots is so cool with it's own character and way and so proffsy!

Job well done, PEPZ!

Happy SS to you dear T...
xoxo

Keep away from the hail & storm.

MyMaracas said...

Wonderful shadow shot! It leaves lots of room for the viewer's imagination.

Love your seagulls - I'm off to enter!

Tom Hilton said...

I had the same thought as Patti--it looks distinctly saurian. Cool shot!

Sweet Repose said...

Autumn is such a beautiful time of year here in the states, we all love it and by then are usually a bit sick of the summer's heat...HOWEVER...we know what lies ahead...WINTER...trust me, you don't want to know!!! But it makes the springtime ever so sweet...and it is what it is!!!

Thanks for putting up with our whining all winter long!!!

Birgitta said...

Cool shadow shot!
Thanks for having my photo in the Shadow Gallery :)

ewix said...

Love your autumn leaf that looks almost like something a dinosaur would eat!

A very striking image.
Sorry I have been so absent but lots of family visiting and so on.
Greetings from New York.

frayedattheedge said...

I don't begrudge you the cooler weather, as it is finally a bit milder here - there was no frost this morning - although there is still some snow about!!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

What a cool leaf shot! Love all the textures going on.... and it is very autumn-y!
March has brought sunshine for us... if it keeps up, we can't complain, well, at least too much, about this winter. Hopefully yours will fly by too!
Karla & Karrie

happilyretired said...

Wonderful textures along with the shadows in your photo this week ... enjoyed the galleries too. Somehow I missed the cat on the toilet at Joysweb last week, but I'll be laughing for a while at that one.
Hugs and blessings,

Sylvia K said...

Funny, but when I first saw your shot for the day my reaction was the same as Patti's -- a prehistoric critter!! Marvelous shot and the precursor of fall! Have a great weekend, Tracy! Thanks as always for the fun!

Sylvia

bobbie said...

Love your shadow shot for this week. And I'm glad your too-hot summer is drawing to an end. I'll be so happy to see one begtin, even though I'm sure I'll soon be complaining about heat instead of cold.
Sorry I haven't a shot this week.

Carolyn Ford said...

Super shadow shot! It certainly saves room for the imagination! Have a great "rest of your weekend," Tracy!

christina sweden said...

Happy shadow shot sunday!

Cassie said...

Okay Tracey, What is that thing?? Some sort of pod? Definately an interesting shadow shot!

Love the gull shots. You even got one mouthing off for the camera. hehe.

ps-I can't get Mr.Blinky to work. I'll try later.

Generik said...

Nice shadow shot. I was thinking more reptilian than saurian, myself, though I suppose that may be a bit too fine a distinction to make much difference. In any event, happy beginning of autumn!

sunnymama said...

Lovely shadow shot. We are just seeing the first signs of spring arriving here. Hope you have a great weekend. :)

Livet genom kameran SWEDEN said...

I like the shadow very much.
So simple....

Martha Z said...

Great shadow shot. I spent some time trying to figure what it is, a leaf?

Greyscale Territory said...

That leaf in macro really looks like some large jawed pre-historic monster! What a great capture! And I have not commented for awhile on your coninued talent collaging our photos! They always look so good together! Thank you so much for spending the time on us! Have a great weekend!

Rosebud Collection said...

You know, at first I thought it was a snake..had to keep looking at it and thinking you are a brave gal. Very interesting picture/shadow..really pretty.
Happy SSS.

Paula Scott said...

That is the best shot ever!!!! I love it!
I had to re-enter my link as I was told that the first one wasn't working (somehow, an extraneous 'l' got on the end of the link without my seeing it).
So, I don't know if you have the ability to correct the first one or just delete it? I think the second one is OK.
Thanks! Have a great weekend!

Jacqui said...

Great shodw shot - had everyone guessing I think. The turning of the seasons is always an exciting time for me. xx

Faith Hope and a whole lotta Love said...

love those cheeky seagulls!!! :) all your images in your shop are delightful! :)

Chasing Purple Dreams said...

I’m playing along for the first time this week. I love your leaf shot, the light coming through is really nice. I posted a leaf painting last night; the change of seasons around here must be making us all think of leaves!

Barbara said...

THANKS FOR DOING THIS. IT'S REALLY FUN. CAN'T GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT LOOKING FOR SHADOWS.

Diane AZ said...

I like how the shadow reveals more cracks in the leaf than we'd otherwise see. Beautiful image!

Catherine said...

great collages as usual - and love your leaf shadow - almost looks like a snake's head at first glance!!

Quasi Serendipita said...

Those seagulls are seriously cute - will have to go and check out the giveaway!

Bentley's Photoblog said...

That leaf photo is great! I just entered the giveaway & hope I win those amazing seagull photos! Enjoy your weekend!

Jen said...

I really like the peaks of light that go thru the cracks in the leaf. Nice shadow shot!
And thanks for hosting this...I really do enjoy it!!
Happy SSS to you !

readingsully2 said...

I love your shadow shot. It is quite beautiful. Good luck to everyone on the give-away too.

Chrisy said...

My favs for this week - the cat on the toilet / the boot with foot word shadowed on it. Great work as always chickie babe. Heading over to that giveaway now....probably have to shove my way in...

Christine said...

Hey Tracy
Your shadow shot had me wondering what it was at first. Then when I really looked closely, all these fantastic parts of it began to show themselves. The light coming through the tears in the leaf makes the shadow a whole different entity. Cool!

Icy BC said...

Beautiful shot!

Anita @ Far Above Rubies said...

This is just the coolest meme! Thanks for hosting:-)

Lily Hydrangea said...

So Autumn over by you means Spring over by me - Yay!
very nice shadow btw.
: )

BLOGitse said...

Your SS is very artistic. Cool shot!
Tracy,
I'm going to have a 'meme break' after this weekend.
We're going to travel next weekend and then we start packing - moving out from Egypt.
This is expat life - in good and bad.
I'll be back in April - when, I don't know yet, but I'll be back.

Enjoy your autumn - we are just about to start to enjoy our spring! It's so funny... :)

Take care,

BLOGitsePHOTOS

fredamans said...

Awesome selection as always!

Linda (The insanity of it all) said...

I love your shadow shot it looks cool. I want to thank you for putting my shot in you shadow gallery. I didn't travel far from home this week. I hope that you will have a great week ahead of you.
Linda

Lindz said...

such a great shadow pictrues of line and the birds

wanderlust said...

I'm pretty spoiled regarding the weather too, my neighbors in the northeast are covered in snow! Have a lovely weekend!

momijitomitsukoshi said...

I love your cooling shadow shot. Yes this Summer has been a scorcher, but I can guarantee when the temps don't pass 30 anymore, I for one will be sorry to say goodbye Summer, hello Winter....

Christine said...

Great shot! Love how the light is so sharp through the holes, love it! Happy SSS!

soopkitsch said...

Beautiful shadow/light patterns from the leaf! I love those seagulls! I would enter that giveaway if I hadn't bought myself that set already! I found some shadow box frames for them and they look amazing!

Diahn said...

What a fantastic shadow - so crispy!

And I would go register for those prints, but I already own them! And they are even more gorgeous in real life!! :)

Mumsy said...

What a great shot, and captured!

Dianne said...

it looks like a sea creature!
how cool is that

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

Hey Tracy:D You and I are on the same page this week...I too took a macro nature shot. I love your cracked leaf. It throws a really cool shadow.

Cold is, like most things, relative...so I can't fault you for feeling the chill. I'm glad you are getting some relief from your scorching summer heat. I'm ready to bring it on here:)

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

Me again:) I meant to say also how lucky someone will be to win your prints. As you know I already have a set of them and I LOVE those gulls!!

Debbie said...

I love all your shots and I have to tell you how much you have inspired me to look for shadow shot opportunities! I never paid no mind before, so thanks for opening up a new world of photography!!~

Paz said...

I love Autumn and I love your giveaway. ;-)

Great shadow shots as usual.

Christine said...

Can you delete link #80 I linked up with last week's SSS instead of today's on my blog... sorry for inconvinence & thanks so much :) Happy Sunday!

Tracy said...

Just LOVE your seagull photos, Tracy! And so many fun shadows this week--especially that cat in the toilet in the first grouping--hilarious! Hope all is well with you & you're having a great weekend :o) ((HUGS))

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

Great shadow of a leaf - so sharp, detailed and
slightly ambiguous at first. Did wonder what it was!
That's the nice surprise about a shape like that.

Gunsside said...

Nice shadow shot, and now my sunny shot is up ;)

I love the shadows leaves make. They are always so artistic. It is very cold and windy and rainy here today after a week of nice weather.
