Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #173


This sweet shadow was cast from one of the many interesting pieces in the Land, Sea and Sky: Contemporary Art of the Torres Strait Islands exhibition currently on at the Gallery of Modern Art. I also popped along to the much anticipated Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibition on Saturday and was awestruck. I can certainly see why he is regarded as one of the master photographers!

Happy Sunday!

Gosh! It looks like a bird! How lovely is that? I've seen some really gorgeous Aboriginal art lately in our own gallery down here and I think I'm having a bit of an epiphany about it - it's just so gorgeous and ...spooky at times too.

I hope you don't mind my Shadow Shot this week - it's a 9/11 Shadow shot because I just felt compelled to say something about that dreadful event ten years ago. But it is still a shadow shot too!

Hope you're well and having a terrific weekend! XO

Karen said...

Oh, I would have loved to have gone to that exhibition!

Ms. Becky said...

I this this is one of the most fantastic and splendid shadow shots EVER!!! I LOVE it. what a great capture Tracy. I hope you're having a great weekend, and thanks for hosting SSS each week. cheers!

Sylvia K said...

Love your shadow shot -- as always, Tracy! This one today reminds me of a peacock with its tail feathers spread! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

Sylvia

Leovi said...

I love this delightful diagonal composition.

frayedattheedge said...

Lovely shadow shot! I have had withdrawal symptoms, after missing the last two weeks!!

sarayutouched said...

i would love to see more of Henri Cartier-Bresson's work. i poked around the link you sent...will have to look deeper. your shadow shot is awesome, love the shadow that you find!!

Crazyasa CoolFox said...

I love the symmetry in your photo, Harriet. Thanks for featuring my photo from last week.

My post this week does not have a physical shadow in it. But it does have another type of shadow...

BLOGitse said...

That's a beautiful shadow shot!
Is it normally ok to take pics in museums over there?
In Finland most of them do not allow you to shoot pics...

I'll vanish for a couple of weeks :) I'll change my blog host plus I travel to San Francisco, U.S. at the end of the month but I'll be back to SSS in October!

Happy end of September!

Dimple said...

The shadow looks like a bird, very neat!

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

lovely symmetry.

Lily Hydrangea said...

that is really cool! & so is the interesting shadow it casts.
thanks for hosting this meme Tracy & I hope you have a great week ahead of you.
; )

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hello there Tracy girl ! hey thanks for including me in the collage : )
I thought the shadow looked like a type of Inuit or Native American painting of a war bird .. isn't it funny what pops into heads with the first impression from something? It can be amazing how differently we perceive an image !
Hope the weather is warming up for you now .. I can't wait for ours to cool down .. "polar opposites" eh ;-)

forgetmenot said...

And what a "sweet" shadow it is--very nice! Sounds like a great exhibit--I'm sure you enjoyed it. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

I'm honored to be part of your selection for this week.
I like your photo very much.
Beautiful composition, colors and light tones.

Regards!

Hi Tracy, that is so cool!

Happy SSS,

Catherine said...

love your delicate shadow and gorgeous pink colour - thanks for all the collages too!

John McElveen said...

That looks like the early Helicopter drawing of one of our Earliest inventors--Ol what's his name! Great shot!

Thanks so much as always for this awesome adventure and challenge!

John

Gemma Wiseman said...

This shadow art is fascinating! There is a sense of a bird in flight ...suggesting a physical perspective...but there is also a sense of spiritual and cultural symbolism. The base of falling features contrasts with the uplight of winged shapes! And what an intriguing shadow it casts!

Happy weekend!

Spadoman said...

That is a very awesome photograph and shadow. I wish I could see the entire piece as well as the entire display!
I've been away a few weeks, glad to back and join in this weekend. Hope all is good with you.

Peace

Lovely shadow shot. And so nice for us to see our dog Lindy in your collage this week. Thanks!

That's gorgeous. Love the colours too.

Beverley Baird said...

Fabulous shadow! Looks like it was a great place to visit.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

LV said...

I hope I did the right thing today for your meme. I love what you shared and seeing the ones you selected from last week.

Nice shadows :)

Sam said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog sweetie! It made me cry!

Ralph said...

I cannot be certain of just what I am seeing - the shadow and subject make two, of what I cannot say. But a whimsical view of true art!

Angie said...

Fascinating SSS, Tracy. Love seeing through your eyes exhibitions that don't come to Perth. Thanks.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

That Bresson knew what he was doing, all right. I used to be in such awe of his work that I thought why bother even trying to take photos? Thank goodness I realized you can do other things and it's still worthwhile. That's what comes from growing up in New York City. There's a lot of that there, the feeling that others are so far beyond you that you should just forget about doing anything. Or at least there was in the dark ages when I grew up.

Neabear said...

This is my first time to participate in your meme. I found my way here through LaVoice when I was reading her post. Looks like a popular meme!

Kelly said...

That is a fascinating piece, as is its shadow! Almost seems alive.

Thanks for using my acorns in your collage this week. :)

Emakesart said...

Oh, I love the shadow that it casts! Great shot. And I'm so jealous that you got to see Henri Cartier-Bresson's photos in person! The man was so talented.

Eden said...

Fantastic shadow. Love the colour too.

Kathe W. said...

no real shadow in this weeks image- but rememberance of 10 years ago when a giant shadow was cast over our land

Francisca said...

I can't make out what the art object is, but that shadow looks like a wonderful Inuit bird sculpture. Wonderful.

Tracy, I read your comment on Sam's blog and just wanted to tell you what a profound 9/11 story that was.

mississippi artist said...

Very unusual and beautiful.

nattsyrransphoto said...

Really interesting!!

Life Mix said...

That ceiling fan shadow looks creative. smart photography

anemonen said...

Lovely endeed.

Patti said...

I also am uncertain of the art object you photographed but it did cast an interesting shadow!

I almost didn't make it this week. I'm number 79. Ralph is way at the beginning! I must get organized.

Thanks as ever for hosting.

RNSANE said...

I love your Shadow Shot. Museums are great for them since they have such good lighting.

Carola said...

Awesome shadow. Magical shot.

jane said...

I love your shot - it is so delicate and fragile - Jane

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

Neat SS...I think I like the shadow better than the object...and least from that angle.

darla said...

i love this! someone mentioned whimsical...i would use that word to describe this too.

thanks for including me in the collage! i was excited to see my photo there! thanks for doing this. it's a lot of fun and helps to keep me going on my one photo a day for a year. i love seeing everyone's photos.

VM Sehy Photography said...

Very cool. Love the subtle colors.

Cassie said...

Wowie, this is a really fine ShadowShot Tracy! Looks like a bird with a propeller for a beak.

Rosie@travel-i-tales said...

The shadow shows us more of the details. Like it!

Mama Zen said...

Amazing shot!

Chrisy said...

Hey there, Tried to leave a comment on your 'love birds' post but can't work out how to! The egrets are boootiful!

Square Peg Guy said...

Thanks so much for selecting my shadow shot and including it with the fine photos!

Hope you're enjoying the change of season!
