Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #118


This big windmill next to the State Library of Qld looks a little out of place...


But hey, it casts a cool shadow across the walkway. The windmill is there to promote an exhibit at the SLQ Gallery called Windwells: Channelling + Divining.

I currently have a nasty flu and I'm struggling to remain upright for long periods of time so it's back to bed for me. I apologise in advance if I'm unable to visit blogs this weekend as I'll be sleeping as much as I can trying to shake this horrid sickness as fast as possible. I hope everyone enjoys their weekend. Take care xo

Happy Sunday!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

oh yulk! Hope you get rid of your bad bug soon :)
Love the shadow - yes, it does look out of place, but lovely at the same time!!

sarayutouched said...

oh...distant hugs to you tracy...feel better soon...lots of rest and fluids!! LOVE the windmill shadow!!!

Ralph said...

I like the blend of agrarian (the farm style windmill) with the modern architecture of the Library. They go together so well!

Dina said...

That's a unique shadow, all right!
Would love to see that exhibition.

You get well soon!

Arija said...

The windmill is a great Ozzie icon and i for one love it. Very nice shot of the shadow across the walkway.
Make yourself a hot toddy of strong tea, honey,rum an lemon an stick some Vicks under your nose and sleep it off under a warm and cushy eiderdown. Hope you gt better really quickly!

Paula Scott said...

I am so sorry to hear you area down with the flu-here's to a speedy recovery.
That is a mighty cool windmill shadow on the sidewalk! It seems so out of place-in a good way, though.
Feel better soon!

If you're interested in improving your health, it [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]MBT[/URL][/B] can be beneficial to start from the ground up. Let's talk about your footwear. How does [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] yours rank? Some so-called fitness shoes merely look great, but don't really provide [B]mbt shoes review[/B] any actual health benefits. Other shoes actually make a [U]mbt shoes clearance[/U] legitimate difference. If you want footwear that truly helps, MBT shoes are the first [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] step toward a healthier you.

What does MBT stand for? Good question. The [B]mbt shoes cheap[/B] answer: Masai Barefoot Technology. They're designed to [B]MBT[/B] simulate walking barefoot, which helped our ancestors to walk [U]mbt shoes clearance[/U] healthier than we do. Modern humans cram their feet into all kinds [U][B]mbt discount shoes[/U][/B] of crazy, uncomfortable shoes, and we walk on [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] unnatural surfaces. MBT returns our feet to their natural, healthier [U]mbt shoes best prices[/U] environment.

MBT shoes actually trigger and enforce the [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] tiny muscles that cause our bodies to naturally absorb [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] shock. The patented construction of the MBT soles features a [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] unique sensor that causes a simulation of being on uneven [U]MBT shoes[/U] ground. It causes an instability that causes the body [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt shoes best prices[/URL][/B] to react with slight movements to compensate for the instability. Thus, a "rolling" process [B]MBT shoes[/B] begins. This active, natural balancing act causes our bodies to automatically [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] exercise. As a result, muscles are strengthened and toned and posture is improved. Also, we experience less joint stress and back [U]mbt discount shoes[/U] pain. Clearly, it's quite a workout, and the benefits are vast.


The shoes do not resemble any [B]mbt sandals[/B] other footwear on the market today. Many people are [U]MBT shoes[/U] surprised when they discover that these "health shoes" are actually [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] esthetically pleasing, as well. [U]mbt sandals[/U] The brand offers trendy [U][B]mbt discount shoes[/U][/B] mary janes, chukka boots, trainers, clogs, sandals, oxfords, slides, fashion boots, mules and more.



That's very good for you [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] . That's what MBT shoes do.

Now you see why keeping a natural balance is crucial toward maintaining [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] a healthier you. If you're making your health a priority, then doesn't it make [U][B]mbt discount shoes[/U][/B] sense to choose footwear that not only increases your fitness level, but also [B]mbt sneakers[/B] supports improved overall health? Now that you understand what all the [U][B]mbt discount shoes[/U][/B] hype is about, perhaps it's time to try the MBT experience. Your body will thank [B]mbt shoes review[/B] you.

Sorry you're sick...that sounds miserable.

Love that windmill shadow, though.

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

Sorry to hear you are poorly and hope you feel better soon! I like the windmill shadow. The photo looks like an architect's drawing I think.

Hope you feel better soon!

So sorry to hear you've come down with an awful cold. You're such a trooper to keep this shadow shot sunday going. I hope you're able to get all the rest you need.

Neat windmill shadows and the windmill against the sky is grand.

BLOGitse said...

Tracy, I'm still coughing - my flu is really stubborn! :)
But we needed to escape from Casa for a long weekend to Bilbao, Spain - greetings from this beautiful city full of art!

BLOGitse said...

I wanted to say

Take care!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Tracy girl ! make sure you are getting lots of fluid .. it is so easy to become dehydrated FAST .. take it from me I know, then you wind up on the bathroom floor for 48 hours and get carted off to the hospital .. jeez ! Chicken soup with lots of garlic .. ginger ale .. saltine crackers .. SLEEP .. and more SLEEP !!
Get well soon and thank you for including my frog in the college girl : ) Joy

Poetic Shutterbug said...

I hope you are feeling better soon. Some great mosaic shadow shots here.

So sorry to read that you have the flu. Get lots of rest, have some chicken soup and plenty of fluids and feel better SOON!

Interesting windmill and I agree it provides a great shadow! Cool shot.

Take care, Tracy ~

Victoria said...

Poor baby. Rest, rest, rest... and drink lots of fluids. And when you are all better, swim across the pond to visit me... I'll take you to see all sorts of windmills!

(Oh, and as always, wonderful, cool shots!)

Now stop reading these comments Tracy, and go to sleep!

Hi Tracy :0) I'm sorry to hear you are unwell, rest up and get better soon. It has been a while since I have chased shadows with you, but it is ingrained since back in the beginning, LOL!! Take care. Annette :0)

chubskulit said...

Great shots Tracy, get well!

Lily Hydrangea said...

lovely Tracy!
nice job on the collages too as always.
& thank you for hosting this meme.
hope you have a great week.
: )

Lily Hydrangea said...

PS
Feel better really soon & don't worry about visiting, I know you are with me in spirit when you read this & that's what counts.
: )
I hope you are gargling with warm salted water. According to a Dr. Oz (a famous TV personality/doctor here in the U.S.) it really keeps the germs from multiplying.

Alexa said...

Try what Lily just suggested—I think it really works!
I love your windmill shadow laid out across the walkway—and I hope you're feeling better very soon.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

You better get better SOON! We'll miss you in blogland until you feel like yourself again.

Wish I could go to the exhibit. Sounds fascinating. I knew someone who could dowse for water with a coathanger.

Marilyn said...

I have just made my first posting for Shadow Shot Sunday, I hope I have done it correctly. thank you for hosting this interesting and fun site.

No better place to be when you are sick, do hope you get better soon. Love the shadow of the windmill, take care.

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

A great connection between the two! Feel better soon!

Sam said...

Dear Tracy!!! So sorry to hear about the 'flu! It's so debilitating - you just can't do a single thing without feeling utterly wiped out - fingers crossed it exits your body quick smart. Thank you so much for doing this gorgeous post because I know how hard it would've been to do in your state!

This windmill is rad! It looks so country Aus to me and then you say it's next to the library - cool!

Did you manage to struggle out of the house for the big vote?

Hope you feel better soon - sending you my healing thoughts up there all the way from Sydney! XOXO's

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

get well soon tracy!

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

Hey Tracy...I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling punk:( I hope you're starting to feel a bit better today.

The windmill shadow is beautiful. Hope you get rid of the flu quickly.

Buy Design said...

Sorry you are feeling poorly. I have been told that rubbing Vicks on your feet is a wonderful cure for colds and flu, though I can think of no good reason why it would work.
Really chuffed to see my photo from last week in your collage. Thanks a lot.

Hi! This is my 1st time participating and I'm so excited! I LOVE this idea. I've been taking pictures of shadows for quite a while now, and I'm glad to see I'm not alone in this! I just got back from a trip to Oregon where I took some cool picts of shadows cast across the ground from trees, so I thought this would be a good time to join in the "happy goodness" of SSS! Thank you for doing this!
