Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #89

Shipwrecked Shadows












Oops. I got a little carried away and posted more photos than I had intended to. Sorry about that. This is the HMQS Gayundah shipwreck and it's located at the south-east of the Redcliffe peninsula in Woody Point.

I discovered some absolutely stunning photographs of this shipwreck over on Redbubble. Click here if interested in viewing them. And plenty more can be found on Flickr as well. Click here for all those ones.

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #88

My photos this week were inspired by Sam's gorgeous shadow shot from last week of Moreton Bay Fig trees in Sydney. Here is a relative of the Moreton Bay Fig tree. A Banyan Fig tree in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens





"Planted in the 1870s and a native to India, the Banyan Fig acquired its name from the Hindu merchant caste, the Banyans, who set up their stalls under the shelter of the expansive tree. It is renowned for its vast growth and sends down aerial roots to support the large branches. These roots eventually develop into a new trunk and so the tree spreads - one in India covering 1.5 ha with over 1000 subsidiary trunks. A Hindu belief was that the Brahma was turned into a Banyan tree and his spirit lives on in these trees. Because of this belief they are encouraged to grow and are rarely pruned, even though Banyans can cause damage to Temples and buildings" - [this information was sourced from the sign beside the tree]

Shadow Shot Sunday can be both fun AND educational. This educational slant brought back memories of being herded through these gardens countless times as a kid on school excursions. It's so much more fun exploring now without the dinky uniform. And without an annoying classmate called Anthony continually pulling my hair for the entire duration between little lunch and big lunch. And that time Richard pushed Joanne into the duck pond. Well, ok, Richard pushing Joanne into the duck pond was a little bit funny. The ducks thought so. I remember them quacking up! (My silly jokes haven't matured much since my school days)

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #87





Last Sunday I mentioned the long stint of rain we had the previous week. This week has predominately been blue skies and high temps. And fish. And chips. And enjoying some cool ocean breezes at Wynnum Manly.

* Just a little note for shadow shooters who have multiple blogs and are participating with more than one blog: Feel free to enter the links of all blogs you've posted your shadow shots to, but please only do this if the photos are not the same on each of your blogs. If you post the exact same image on more than one blog, it would be very much appreciated if you only entered the one blog url into Mr Linky. Thanks a bunch!

While on the subject of adding links to Mr Linky, I'd like to direct you to a post by BLOGitse HERE with regards to entering blog urls vs. permalinks. It will remain up to you as to which you add as I'm not going to make it a rule one way or another. I can suggest that if you are a prolific blogger and post many times a day and join in many memes it would be easiest for people to find your specific submissions by adding permalinks to the memes you participate in. Especially so if you enter a meme early and other participants enter the day after (considering most are open for at least 2 days to accomodate for the different timezones). And then also consider that those who have entered later may not have time to visit fellow participants immediately. A prolific blogger may have published so many posts by this time that the original one linked for the meme may no longer even be on the front page of the blog. For those who blog once a day or less, adding a standard blog url rather than a permalink, I don't believe would be at all problematic for other participants finding your post. Something to think about. In the end it's your call.

Geez that's a whole lot of waffling isn't it? Bravo to those who actually read it all! xox

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #86


Due to the overcast and rainy weather we experienced for the most part of last week in Brisbane, this was the best I could do. Coffee at the Story Bridge Hotel. Coffee tastes even more special when it's raining.

Today is the last day of my 2 week break from work. Returning tomorrow will be so hard. I'm not ready...

Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #85

Dog Day Afternoon
(starring Sophie as Pooch Pacino)


I think I'll attempt to rob a bank today and spend all the money on Schmackos


My mid-yawn scary face should terrify people into handing over the cash without the need for a gun


Now, which bank to target? Hmmm...it's all too much really. I think I'll have a nap instead

The end.

It's a new year and so many more shadows yet to be hunted down! Thanks to all of you shadow shooters for bringing so much fun to this little meme each week. You guys are the best! I'm looking forward to another year filled with shadowy goodness! As is Sophie. Although Sophie prefers napping in her shadowy finds.

Happy Sunday!
