Shadow Shot Sunday #179

Gabba Gabba Hey! Shadow Shot Sunday!


Hi and welcome to SSS. If you’d like to join in, please do. How? Shoot a shadow, post it on your blog on Sunday (or close to Sunday), add your link to Mr Linky, and visit other players. First-time participants are required to click HERE for further info before submitting links. Thanks and I hope you enjoy the shadows!

-----------------------------------------

Aaarrrrgh! Sorry once again for their being no Shadow Gallery collages! The time I had set aside to draft the post I was having terrible troubles accessing blogger / blogspot blogs to copy and save photos. I'm not sure if it was a blogspot platform issue or my internet connection was a bit patchy at the time, but I threw a silly little tantrum and gave up. But hey at least you guys didn't have to witness my tantrum. I could have filmed myself having a meltdown & posted the vid here ;)

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #179


A quiet mid-morning ferry trip. The usual times I commute on these ferries I struggle to find a vacant seat, so this indeed was a very pleasant change!

"We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now"
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy Sunday!

Terrific shadow shot for the day, Tracy, love the colors! I've had blogger problems this week, too!! Hope your weekend is going well!

Paula Scott said...

It's my birthday today in Australia! It will be my birthday tomorrow here in NM. 57 years old!
I love that shadow shot on the ferry! It is out in the open-what happens during 'winter'? Doesn't it get too cold to sit out there?
I think it was Blogger that had issues, not you or your server. Sometimes they do and it is frustrating! At least now, they have automatic save. Back when I first started blogging, they didn't and sometimes I'd loose everything in the draft that I was posting. It happened too many times.

BLOGitse said...

How long your ferry trip takes?
If you stand you don't have to go to gym! :)
Happy Sunday!

Chubby N Chieque said...

Heya Tracy...

Been ages not joining you. Too busy last summer when our friends from Melbourne wanted to join us with our escapades.

Came Sep 16 back and hopefully can join you again the w/end funtime.

Happy Sunday DownUnder...

God Bless,

Maggie said...

Hi Tracy
I can almost feel the sun beating down on my shoulders!
Great shot.
bon dimanche
Maggie

Kathe W. said...

such a great sunny shadow shot!

Teresa~ Gardening with Soule said...

I can almost feel the sun on my back sitting there. nice shot.

Riet said...

HI I am new here, I thought, but just saw that I was here before almost two years ago. But anyway I am back again . I love your sunny photo.
Riet

Ms. Becky said...

I always love the mood of your images. fantastic. I'm along of the ferry ride with you. thanks for hosting SSS each week, and have a fab one Tracy.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

A meltdown might have been fun - lol! But this calm shot on the ferry sets the mood for a perfect day!! Have a lovely weekend Tracy!
Karla & Karrie

frayedattheedge said...

Super shadow shot! There have been problems with commenting on blogger/blogspot, so perhaps your problem was related,

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Tracy girl I would have paid a cover charge to see that melt down girl ! LOL .. I have some terrible tantrums myself when things don't work on my computer .. I expect to just sit and drive it like my car .. don't give me a hard time , just drive !!
You kooky woman ;-)
Joy
We should form the
All Girl Tantrum Team !!!

Beverley Baird said...

Lovely shadows for the week! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Cassie said...

Love this ShadowShot! The water is so blue. I bet even having to stand on this ferry trip is a pleasant experience with that beautiful view. Happy SSS...Oh, and I think it was bloggers fault...I had a heck of a time too.

Kay L. Davies said...

Super shadow shot, and I love the quotation, from a great man!

Molly said...

Those are really cool - love the turquoise sea colour

Catherine said...

oooh I love chair shadow shots and this is a super one - greetings from the Riviera.....

Gallery Juana said...

the red lifesaver and blue seats are fun pieces in this shot. Looks like a beautiful sky to be under for this commute.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Oooh, the sea green colors, the splash of red, the brilliant sunshine. What a dreamlike and transporting shadow shot. All puns intended.

And by the way, not that you'd switch, but I never ever have problems with wordpress.

Inger-M said...

Beautiful shot, love the blue/green/turquoise, can almost feel the sunshine!

Gemma Wiseman said...

(Still chuckling about CanadianGardenJoy's comment! It's a good one! When I feel the urge of a computer tantrum coming on, I leave it all alone, go out on the verandah, enjoy the view and a few deep breaths, then return to face the beast again! Sometimes that works!)

It must be lovely to do regular travel on the ferry! No car wrestling peak hour traffic! I imagine there are both indoor and outdoor seats! Love the bfresh blue of the seats and the shadows they cast!

Enjoy your weekend!

Dimple said...

It looks like a hot day!

Eden said...

Beautiful sunny shadow. Love it.

jeanofalltrades said...

How serene! What a great way to travel. I love the cool blues in this shot. Lovely.

Martin Lower said...

Love the strong shadows in your photo. I guess you get more sunshine than we do here!

LV said...

When it comes to computers or blog world, anything can happen. When the weather is nice, I am sure sitting on one of those chairs with the breeze in your face, would be pleasant.

Sam said...

Great shot Tracy! Love the blues! How lovely that you catch the ferry everyday! I catch the ferry to Manly once a week to visit my Dad and I've got to say it's one of the highlights of the week! It puts you in a good frame of mind, doesn't it?

Hope your web probs sort themselves out - my internet has been going up and down like a nervous umbrella of late - very frustrating! XO

Doug said...

Were you on a cruise Harriet? Looks like a beautiful place. Have a great Sunday!

Spadoman said...

I love ferry boats. I think the main reason is that I know I'm going somewhere! The wind looks brisk, even in the sun. Great shot!

Peace

MyMaracas said...

Love the color effect and those inky pools of shadow. Looks like a great day for a ferry ride.

Dianne said...

I love the lines and shapes!
and the water is so pretty

Angie said...

Sunshine all the way! Makes for great shadows - hues of blues. Love that quote.

Just like Martha said...

Great shadows, what a great way to travel to work! Hmmm technology when it works its fab but when it doesn't aaarggghhhh! Hope you are having a great weekend and a fab week ahead, Lee x

Poetic Shutterbug said...

What great captures and there's nothing more relaxing than a trip on the ferry, especially in the morning.

Really Rainey said...

I love the colors and the lines of the shadows!

FiveSibesMom said...

Love how the shades of blue on the chair match those in the sea. Such a peaceful photo. Makes you want to be there, breathing in the air, feeling the water splash up...very nice shot!

John McElveen said...

Tracy--This one POPS!! Great Shadow shot!

Linnea said...

Wow! Awesome blues along with such crisp shadows. Thanks for hosting!

♥~Judy~♥ said...

Lovely crisp shadow shot. It would fit into the other meme for three in a row too.

Thanks so much for hosting this. Take care and God bless.

Emma said...

Fabulous colours and a wonderful snapshot bringing a pause into the daily rush! Oh to go to work by ferry!!

anjoe playhouse said...

First you could take this great SSS photo, and then take a seat and enjoy the nature ;-)

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

A great blue/green color range and I love the
Martin Luther King quote!

urban muser said...

sorry to hear about your little meltdown :) but at least you got some quiet time and a lovely photo on the ferry ride!

A Wild Thing said...

Wonderful shot Tracy, I love the way that camera takes pictures!

Blogger seems to giving a lot of us issues these days...I went to my blog one day and a note came up saying that the blog had been removed...SAY WHAT...crazy!!!!

Have a great week girl!

Neabear said...

Love your shadow shot. Makes me want to be on that ferry taking a quiet ride. Been a long time since I have been on a ferry. We can take one to S.F instead of driving there if we wish.

~Linnea

Sherrie said...

Hi!
Beautiful shadows. Glad there was a seat for you. Have a great day!

The colors are beautiful.
Looks like a very pleasant ride. :)

Life Mix said...

This reminds me of those times when I come home and I take boat for almost 12 hours

Alexa said...

Don't know where this boat is going, but I'm buying a ticket and joining you on board. What lovely, crisp shadows!

sarayutouched said...

love all the different shades of blue in your shadow shot!!! looks like a peaceful ride on this day!!

Emakesart said...

Yeah, blogger's been a pain. Would've loved to see the tantrum though, hee hee. Nice shadow shot, looks like it was a gorgeous day. Love the MLK quote too..I've never heard that one. Hope you have a great week Tracy.

xoEsther

Square Peg Guy said...

Ahhh, that looks lovely!

If you had video-taped your tantrum, it could have been the Shadowy Side of Yourself. ;)

Enjoy the Spring!

darla said...

love it! i think i wouldn't mind that ferry ride!

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

I love the blues in your photo...very pretty...I look forward to sitting in those chairs :D
