Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #100


The above isn't my 'shadow shot' but a lead into this alternative view I spotted of the buildings...


Still not exactly a 'shadow shot' but the reflection of St John's Cathedral and another building as captured in the highrise block across the road that caught my eye. I like the wonky reflection of the taller building! Some nice city reflections found along Ann Street in Brisbane. And yes, I do occasionally leave my little island hideaway. More than occasionally actually, as I regularly commute into the big smoke for work.

And in celebration of this being the 100th SSS post I'm having a...

Shadow Shot Sunday Super Secret Giveaway!

The Super Secret giveaway prize will be revealed next week along with the name of the winner. The reason for the secrecy is because I haven't figured out what the prize will be yet. But rest assured, it will be a package of some nice little things! The winner will be drawn randomly from this weeks Mr Linky participant link list, so all SSS participants this week are automatically entered into the giveaway. The giveaway is a little token of my appreciation to you fine folk for playing along. Many thanks to everyone & good luck!

Happy Sunday!

I always enjoy the Shadow Gallery and appreciate all the time you put into making this such a successful weekly event. I really like both of YOUR photos this week ... the first provides and wonderful 'context' for the second ... and methinks James and his Weekend Reflections participants would really enjoy that last photo.
Hugs and blessings,

sarayutouched said...

enjoy the rest of today and have a great week with your camera...love seeing what's going on in your world.

Paula Scott said...

That is absolutely THE BEST reflection shot I've seen! I really love it! Here we are at the 100th posting! Woohoo! And on my blog, it is my 455th posting. What milestones!

Sylvia K said...

Congratulations on BIG 100!!! Thank you as always for the fun each week and for all the work you do to keep it fun. Love your reflection shot! It is gorgeous! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

Sylvia

Catherine said...

Must be a wonderful contrast living on your island retreat and commuting to the bi city!! Love the reflective shot....greetings from Mexico

keiren said...

Congrats on the 100th SSS posting!!! The reflection photo is very cool!

frayedattheedge said...

Congrats on your 100th!! Thanks for al your hard work so we get to have so much fun I love your reflection shot - especially your 'wonky' bit .... and then you said it was Ann Street - perfect!

Gerald (Ackworth born) said...

well done on reaching the ton - I wasn't supposed to be here this week but I am.

EG Wow said...

Fabulous reflection!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Wow, one hundred weeks of super shadows. You've done so much for the photographic community, far flung over the planet. Many of us see our favorite hobby/pastime/passion quite differently, due to YOU. Thank you, dear creative Tracy. Your unflagging cheerfulness, humor and interest in the world inspires us all.

Shannara said...

Your shot for this week is lovely

Helen said...

Great shot!
I'll definitely be participating this week, though I'll have to post it tomorrow of course.

Sweet Repose said...

WOW...what an accomplishment, are ya pooped yet, especially after the move.

We all love SSS so much, I can't imagine a week without it, talk about dedication...and thank you so much for posting me, you save my butt every week!

Rock on sista!!!

MyMaracas said...

Hey, congrats on the big milestone! And thank you so much for all the hard work you put into this meme to make it fun and special.

Love your reflection shots - it's like a peek into an alternate universe. Whoever wins your giveaway is going to be very lucky!

Ralph said...

The old vs. the new is a classic take. The new is made of steel and lots of glass. But skyscrapers today all are made of that. The church, on the other hand, has such beauty of the past, like the twin spires, the arches and stone finish will retain its architectural beauty always, and as such will not become anonymous - ever!

Victoria said...

Very cool... I like that wonky effect also! Looks a little Dr. Seuss like :0)

Congrats on your 100th SSS post! That's amazing! I admire you for the work and love you have put into it. I think you should get a prize!

judi said...

Harriet,
I messed up. The second entry is correct. Thanks,
Just starting to see the shadows.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Wow! 100th posts? It's just like yesterday, isn't Tracy? How long I known you thru SSS?

Ahhh... am present this week-end. So busy last week-end.

Missed without the SS. Seems part of my routine during Saturday mornings. TY for giving me the strength to get up early and chase my fresh shadow shots to share with your dearie friends.

Have a wonderful Sunday DownUnder...

XoXo always...

Generik said...

I always like a good reflection. Maybe you could do a Reflection Friday or something?

Carin said...

Great reflection! Good to see I'm back just in time for your 100th shadow shot Sunday post.

Have a nice day!

Birgitta said...

Wow! 100! Congrats!

Great reflection shots!

Beverley Baird said...

Congrats on 100 SSS! And what a great shadow/reflection to mark it!

Greyscale Territory said...

Your two worlds of life must be like refreshment - one contrasts with the other! Beautiful reflections! The effect is like buckling reality!

Chasing Purple Dreams said...

Happy 100th Shadow Shot Sunday. Thanks for hosting, I really love playing along and hunting for shadows all week. I have shied away from including “reflections”, but I love your shots and I might now pop in a reflection or two!

Hot Fudge said...

100 - wow - that makes Mr Fudge's 70 look a little puny, doesn't it? Congratulations Tracy on your enthusiasm every week - it shines through.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw your shots for this week - you will see what I mean when you take a look at my post. Spooky!

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

CONGRATS Tracy!! This has been quite an accomplishment!

Love your shadowy reflections. That wonky building is rather Picasso-ish looking. Cool find.

How sweet of you to do a celebratory giveaway. Whoever wins...whatever you decide...I bet someone will be very, very happy:)

Thanks for being the hostess with the mostess! xo Lisa

Laura Hegfield said...

wow 100 sss posts, way cool!

Love your reflection shot:)

Joops said...

Wow congratulations on reaching the 100th posts!

maryt/theteach said...

I love the shot, Tracy! Congratulations on your 100th post! :)

anka said...

Lovely meme, thanks for hosting. And Happy SSS #100! Hope to be here around for the next 100 :)

Sam said...

Oh yeah! I love a bit of Victorian architecture! How interesting those spires are in the different stone (?). Our cathedral is the same style and I'm pretty sure I saw a similar type of thing in Melbourne and Adelaide. I guess we're all roughly the same age give or take a couple of decades. It's so cool seeing bits of Brisy - must get up there again for a look see!

Thank you for including my unhappy cherub in the collages! ...and happy 100th SSS! XOXO's Have a terrific week on your island! :0)

toby said...

I always enjoy your galleries - thanks so much for including my post in this one!

And a huge way to go on these 100 weeks! Without you, a lot of us wouldn't be looking for shadows - thanks for opening our eyes, and our imaginations!

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

What a contrast - the new and the old! That building looks awfully tall from here.. great picture taking perspectively!

Patti said...

Like my husband (Ralph the Airhead) said, I love the contrast of the classical architecture of the cathedral with the steel and glass skyscraper. Nice reflections and shadows captured!

You call the city the big smoke? Interesting term! Can't say I've ever heard it.

Happy Sunday to you, too, Tracy, and a great week ahead. Congrats on the 100th post.

Sarah said...

Wow 100 sss's! That's great! I like the reflections this week-I think that is one of the main benefits of those big shiny city type buildings-their reflective qualities. Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Patti said...

woops - I didn't think my link worked so that's why it's there twice. Sorry

Knicky Knacks said...

What a great idea. Whilst I am very much the novice (just point and shoot) photographer (and I cringe even using the word photographer because it sounds like I know what I'm doing!), I have entered my first attempt at capturing a shadow. I hope it stands up to the very talented people that come before me!

chubskulit said...

Congratulations Tracy, way to go!

fredamans said...

You can see a shadow in the first photo against the alternate building. Great shots!

Joanna said...

Congratulations on your 100th Shadow Shot Sunday and thanks for hosting this great meme.

Really beautiful reflection. Happy weekend and SSS!

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous Shadows! I'm especially enamored with Gallery Juana's wonderfully bright yet shadowy bird...

BLOGitse said...

wow, 100. SSS postings! Congrats Tracy!
Thank you for your hard work - for us players this is pure fun!

Great reflection picture!

Have a great Sunday plus a week ahead!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Tracy!
loved your reflected buildings.
Really fascinating shots. Spring here --very exciting.

Thank you for including my park shot in the
super collage.

momijitomitsukoshi said...

Happy 100th!!!
It's a great thing you have going here! Here's to another hundred!
I love your photos! Brisbane is gorgeous. My parents visited their friends in that apartment block and they looked out at that church from the pool deck I think. I saw their photos just a few weeks ago. It's such a small world!

momijitomitsukoshi said...

PS: Thank you for including my photo in this weeks round up!!

Icy BC said...

Gorgeous photo, Tracy! Those buildings look so magnificent.

Tracy said...

Happy 100 SSS, Tracy...that is such a wonderful milestone! And so many great shadow contrasts this week. I do the contrasts of your own photos this week...old church, new glass...WOW! :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

MOO said...

And a majestic reflection it is! I often consider a mirrored image to be some kind of shadow, don't you?

BlackStar said...

What a gorgeous shot! Congrats on the 100th shadow shot.
I haven't posted one yet this year and this is my first week back. For some reason I can't paste the link into my post. Any help would be appreciated. Did something change while I was MIA?
Have a great week!
