Shadow Shot Sunday


The Victoria Bridge which connects the Brisbane CBD to Southbank Parklands and the Cultural Centre casts a nice big and bold shadow along this walkway.


This smarty pants cyclist doing an impressive wheelie whooshed past just as I finished taking my shadow shot. The cheeky monkey nearly knocked me over!

SSS... new hosts and a new home

Super exciting news!

After announcing last week that I'll no longer be hosting Shadow Shot Sunday there were a number of lovely people who contacted me expressing an interest to keep it going! So there is now an awesome SSS team who have set up a dedicated SSS blog to continue linking your fine shadows to! Your wonderful new hosts are Gemma Wiseman, Magical Mystical Teacher and Rose. Thanks team! There are also some kind people who voluteered to be standby hosts for when the team may need some extra hands and they are Suzanne, Desirae and Katerina. Thanks guys! I mentioned last week that his would be the last SSS hosted on my blog but as the new team have already set up a new blog and are ready to go, you can head straight over there to link up. Gosh, how organised are they!?! Very! So go visit the brand spankin' new and very stylish Shadow Shot Sunday blog and say hello to your new lovely hosts and link up your shadows!

The last...

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #187


Some little shadows flapping about on a breezy day!


And the source of those shadows are these birdy flags that I have hanging across the front of my carport. Whooosh! It has been a rather windy weekend so far!


I'm joining in Shadow Shot Sunday! Just click the image above to join in too!

See! Told you the the team were organised! They even have a super cool new SSS button! Again, thanks to all of you for participating in SSS and for your sweet comments and emails last week. I'm so thankful that it will be continuing so I can keep shooting shadows (because I am addicted!) and join in as a participant!

Happy Sunday!

Shadow Shot Sunday #186

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!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #186



A shadow cast from a small table furnishing The Cane Toad Times: Poking fun in a police state exhibition on at the State Library of Queensland. The Cane Toad times was an independent publication that ran from 1977 to the late 80s and exposed the corruption going on in Queensland under the Joh Bjelke-Peterson Government. The sunshine state was a little less sunny back in those days...

It's with much sadness to say that I'll not be continuing with hosting Shadow Shot Sunday after next week. This is purely due to time constraints, yet I'm really hopeful that somebody else will be interested in hosting it so that it can continue. That would make me very happy indeed! So if you're keen on taking over please bounce me an email (just click on the contact tab at the top on my blog) and we can chat about it. Please know that you certainly don't need to host SSS the same way as I have been. Perhaps if there are a number of people interested an option could be to set up a dedicated SSS blog with various admins to share the running of the meme? Just a thought. I started SSS in May of 2008 and it's been an absolute blast as I've met so many wonderful bloggers during this time and I feel so very fortunate because of that. You guys have been such a pleasure in getting to know and I want to thank you so very much for participating in this little meme. It's meant a great deal to me! Anyway, next Sunday will be the last SSS hosted here on this blog & with any luck I'll be able to announce a new host then. So please, get in touch if you'd like to take over!

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #185


An early Saturday morning view of the pathway outside the Qld Art Gallery.

I only had time to create one SSS collage this week. Just thought I'd mention that in case you thought your computers were being all buggy and only displaying one collage instead of the three. Fear not! All is well with your computers!

Happy Sunday!
