Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #156


Here we have push bike (and curtain) shadows appearing on the laundry door. I'm surprised that shadows were able to be cast considering the large pile of laundry stacked up by the window. The sun must have been extra strong that day!

Just wanted to mention a super giveaway happening over at Etsy if anyone is interested. Members of the fPOE (Female Photographers of Etsy) team have donated items to the value of approximately $300 combined! One lucky person will win all of the items featured in this gorgeous treasury below...

Ah! The mundane business of laundry! But, what a wonderful laundry room shadow! Nice image to do laundry by...

Patti said...

I like the blurred effect of your shadow today.

Cool to have a laundry room! We're not quite that fancy. : )

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

baa haa haa haa....really? We can't imagine there is THAT much laundry Tracy :) well...ok, we can - only because we both did two loads this morning before heading off to work! (and the piles did NOT go down a significant ammount - and that is SUCH a bummer!)

Love the soft shadow of the bike & it's bell. Is there anything happier than a bike bell ringing? We'd love to know!
Have a great week!

Sylvia K said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a big stack of laundry!! With the move two weeks ago there has been serious misuse of the laundry basket!! Great shadow shot as always, Tracy! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy! Thanks as always for the shadowy fun!

Sylvia

BLOGitse said...

Ciao Tracy!
Greetings from Tuscany, Italy!
This week my post is still from Bronte beach Sydney but next weekend I'll post pics from here. So beautiful!!!
Have a great Sunday!

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Hi Tracy,

I LOVE your shadow shot. It is very beautiful. Your flap, flap pics are very beautiful too. I'm going to over and check out your Esty store and contest. I haven't been there for a while.

I think that you will like my shadow shots today, they are much better than last weeks.

Have a wonderful week!

Kathy M.

Beverley Baird said...

Love the muted effect of the shadow! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

MamaGirl said...

I love the softness in your shadow shot this week :)

Ms. Becky said...

Tracy, I believe this is one of my favorite shots of yours ever. love it - it has it all.

Gallery Juana said...

Maybe you've been enjoying your bike rides and that's why the laundry has piled up. Or you've been out getting more of your fantastic photos! All great reasons to leave the laundry for another day. I can think of some reasons if you need me too:)

Have a great Sunday and week!

Ralph said...

The laundry has not yet risen to window level in our home - yet! The shadow is faint, but intriguing as we have to study the faint shadow to see what it is. Which is why I like all shadows - we get to use our imaginations!

Kay L. Davies said...

A beautiful soft shadow shot, Tracy. No one would know about the laundry if you hadn't mentioned it! LOL

Nice giveaway and shadows too!

EG Wow said...

GREAT shadow shot! Love your sense of humour here. Large stack of laundry sounds familiar.

Mama Zen said...

Lovely shot!

Martha Z said...

The images has an ethereal look to it.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I agree with Martha Z that your image is quite dreamy. Be glad your washer didn't conk out like mine did this week or the pile would be bigger!

This week my shadow shot is more of a reflection shot, but a really good one:

Annabella said...

I love the way the shadow kind of glides across the image. Lovely!

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

I like it a lot! The bike image declared itself after a while, as the laundry did not. Great unusual capture
of a bike!

sarayutouched said...

laundry can wait...shadows can not!! right?!! thank goodness we don't have to submit a shadow from the actual day...no sun here today!! great bike shadow!!

Greyscale Territory said...

A delightful, haunting shadow! Almost like some spirit drifting by! Really lovely!

Amazing how some of the loveliest shadows can appear in the most ordinary places!

Cindy said...

I love the feel of this shot... a little spooky, in a good way :)

Faith Hope and a whole lotta Love said...

cool bike shot!! I am back after a few weeks absence.....still think of you every Sunday even though I may not be here in person!

wow that treasury!!!!! :)

Jo Williams Photography said...

Laundry! I hear you Tracey, I have a large pile of it constantly. A lovely soft shadow around the strong bike shadow, lovely capture. Good luck getting the washing done!

Dimple said...

I like the soft focus on this one, it is dreamy and a little mysterious.

Sam said...

That bike shadow looks mysterious are pretty! ...and I love the browns and greys of the collages this week - very lovely!

Am going to hot foot it over to that amazing giveaway you have going there - thank you! Hope you're well! XOXO's

STEF said...

Lovely collages! Care to visit my entry? Thanks and see you around!

Spadoman said...

I love your shot. I first thought it to be the shadow of an iron bed frame against some sheer curtains, but now i see the handlebars and maybe a speedometer. Very cool! Who does the laundry at that place? They're way behind.

Peace.

fredamans said...

Thank you for adding my celebridoggy to the showcase!
Love your soft shadows, which I believe is a bicycle?

muchlove said...

Happy Sunday Tracy! x

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Lovely shadow shot Tracy - I can hear that bell ringing cheerfully - My laundry is stacked up high on the laundry basket too - hope you have had a great weekend x

RNSANE said...

This is one of my favorite memes...as you can see, I've posted one taken of a European vacation...everyone seems to hang their laundry out their windows!

FiveSibesMom said...

Happy Shadow Shot Sunday! Great pics this week (again!) Love your laundry room door one...so great how a shadow shot can appear almost anytime, anywhere, isn't it? It's fun eyeing for them before shooting! This week, two of my Sibes inspired mine...as they always do! Have a great week!

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

What a hazey and mysterious shadow shot :)

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

Hi, Lady! I linked up Sunday, but didn't comment and I apologize. It's that end-of-the-school-year-busy-weekend thing. :)

I love, love, love those piggies, tho!
