Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #40

I spotted these shadows as soon as I entered the gallery space at the Museum of Brisbane and I ran towards them, fumbling in my backpack along the way for my camera. In hindsight, I didn’t need to run. The exhibition is on until the 8th of June. I was just super excited by these shadows. The creator of the sculptures is Matt Dabrowski, and he is one of twenty-two artists featuring in the Temperature 2: New Queensland Art exhibition at MoB. Here’s a little info about Matt’s sculptures if you’re interested:

Celebrating social and artistic freedom. Matt regards skateboarding as a healthy dose of vitality in our carefully controlled environments. These sculptures represent his resistance to official and corporate control of the appearance and functioning of the city. Matt uses skateboards to represent individual freedom of spirit. Pierced by arrows, they resemble hunting trophies or tribal artefacts. Because of the ideas they represent, his skateboards are literally targets. The arrows used here were fletched (feathered) with the advice of Cliff Turpin, a weapons advisor to the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

I've recently been tagged with the random photo folder thingie by Gina from Gingerbread and Terri from Ways I See The World. I'm going to cheat here. What a surprise eh? I decided it would be nicer instead to post two more shadow photos. These shots are from participants from last week that didn't add their links in time to Mr Linky, so missed out on being included in the collages. Hope you don't mind Gina and Terri!

Happy Sunday!

Hey T, that's one super shot shadow sunday. It happens to all of us, well me most of the time, fumbling with the camera when the shot I want to take is going nowhere. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shadow, it's super does look like wayang kulit or shadow puppet to me for a moment. And hey, I am first :P of your 50 over comments ...and growing. I missed so many wonderful shadows last week, that spec shadow is really something. Have a great weekend T...big hugs, M
Cindy said…
My 1st time posting with SSS. What awesome shots! I've just started noticing shadows some of my photos have picked up...but in order for there to be shadows, there must be some sort of sun (not in abudance here in Michigan, USA at the moment!)

Love your museum shot and yes there is a reason to rush.....the perfect shadow disappears with the speed of light!

Have a great day!! ~ Cindy
Love your shadow shot this week. I can see why you ran...
GalleryJuana said…
Those are some very interesting sculptures! It looks like skateboards and arrows. And I like the two photos you included from last weeks pool.
GalleryJuana said…
O.k., I just read the blurb about what his sculpture means and why he uses those materials. cool.
A Wild Thing said…
Awesome...and I like the artist Grandson is a skateboarder and frequently is occausted by testosterone engorged officials, demanding them to vacate their premises...immediatly!!! BULLIES!

Have a great Sunday girl, as always!

bobbie said…
No wonder you ran for those shadows. They are so beautiful!

I'm glad you shared the two great ones who were late last week. Isn't the heart shaped lens shadow wonderful!
SandraRee said…
Hey T! Your ‘dirty lens’ Argus 75 camera turned out two fantastic photos, love Gertie the Garrett. :D Congratulations on winning "April Bear" also, Ali does fantastic work!

Your shadow shot is beautiful, it took me by surprise that it was skateboards! Arrows, advice from a weapons advisor to the Lord of the Rings film trilogy...very cool. And the Shadow Gallery, impressive, as always! :)

Happy Sunday to you! xo
Hahaha...laughing at your comment about running when you really didn't need always make me laugh.
Cool art and shadow shot! I didn't know what it was at first. More great collages too.
The ones that came in late are really neat too. I llove the bug and the sunglasses with heart is very creative. Hope clearview and stuff make it in on time this week...we love to see what they come up with next.
My SS will be along later this suppose to be cleaning house now....
Gemma Wiseman said…
Really love your shadow shot this week. It looks like two exquisite bouquts of delicate stems falling gently from a great height!

And your collages are definitely an artwork in their own right! Wonderful tapestry of shadows!
Hot Fudge said…
What a wonderful shot Tracy. I'll have to hotfoot it over to MoB to catch this exhibition. And I love this week's collages - they are beautifully composed, up to your usual standard!
Shannon said…
LOVE the collages... and those shadows are quite spectacular... would love to see the sculptures, the do look very cool!
Anonymous said…
Very unusual sculptures and shadows - just great. Also another thank you for all the collages you do each week which must take a lot of your time.
maryt/theteach said…
Wonderful shot of the sculpture, Harriet! Any reason why you chose a sepia tone for the photo?
Kat said…
wow no wonder you got excited the sculpture shadows..these are great..I love that the artist consulted a weapons specialist to get the effect he a bit of passion for your craft!
have a great sunday!
Chubby Chieque said…
Good Morning, DownUnder!!! How's everybody? Hope you had a wonderful Saturday and more wonderful Sunday to come.

AM fascinating of all the shadows w/ all the participants. I love your shadow so much! You always captured the best shot, a man can get! Hmmm... it's seldom that we can take pix inside the museum in Scandinavia.

Cheers & hugs!
Tom Hilton said…
Great sculptures, fantastic shot.
Alissa Nicolau said…
Super Shadow Shot! I think it is so cool how you seem to be everywhere out and about. You go to galleries, exhibits, museums, parks, and all sorts of other inspirational spots that I'm forgetting now... each week it seems! You are one cool lady. One in the know lady. Here's to wishing we could pal about around town together.

Have a wonderful, wonderful Sunday and a great week ahead :0)
Martha said…
I just love your blog!
I was paying so much attention to the shadows of the arrows, I didn't realize that the skateboard were there! Very cool! If, for some odd reason, I find myself in Austrailia between now and June....I'll find a way to visit {love love art museums!}
Thanks for sharing those two shadows that didn't get on last them, especially that heart - in pink of course....perfect for last weekend!
jo said…
love how your shadow shot made the artwork even cooler
Carletta said…
I have to agree with Jo - I hadn't really thought of it until I saw the comment but your shadow shot has indeed added a little extra dimension to the artwork!
The sepia was a wonderful effect as well.
My son was a skateboarder when he was young. At the time he would have LOVED one of these in his room.
Thanks for being such a gracious hostess.
Terri said…
Fantastic shot, Tracy. I wish it was bigger so we could see more of it!

Thanks for all your work on this challenge.
Generik said…
Ooh, ooh, scary and arrow-y! Sharp angles and suggestive shadows. Gives me a good idea for a future contribution. I like! said…
I love the shadow as well as the work of art. It's nice to hear about your excitement upon discovery!
thanks once again for your beautiful collages as well as this very fun meme. Happy day to you!

Your shadow shot this week so unusual and totally cool! and the collages fascinating as ever.
We are travelling and I have major jet lag!
All best wishes and love.
What an interesting shadow shot and story about them..Beautiful picture. You have to admit, this is really catching on..I know this, it is keeping me on the look out for shadows.
judi/Gmj said…
First time here, I truly enjoy your photos, and the submissions of others.
EG CameraGirl said…
The shadows you spotted at the museum are extremely lovely!
Anonymous said…
that's a very special shadow shot! you visit the coolest exhibitions. i appreciate you including the info about the sculptures because i wouldn't have a clue what it all meant if you didn't. art is often beyond my understanding. i do know that i like the skateboard shadows. i think you are the only person i know who runs in galleries! funny crazy harriet!
Sherrie said…
Your shadows are great and the art is beautiful! Mine is posted. Have a great day!!

Victoria said…
Ha! I love visualizing you running for this shot. The world would be a better place if everyone carried your enthusiastic spirit, Tracy! The shot is super cool, as is the art work and the wonderful meaning behind it. Also Congrats on your awards. I like the clever way you passed them along, (keep breaking those rules!) ... That sunglass/heart shadow photo is awesome!
Dianne said…
I love that you ran toward the exhibit! I do the same with shadows, always afraid they'll move or change before I capture them - I guess that's part of the wonder of shadows

These are beautiful!
{S.T.U.F.F.} said…

Tracy, one of your best. I can see why you ran. What a superb shadow shot! Thanks again for your continuing inspiration.
PJ said…
I (heart) the glasses shot and can only imagine how close you had to get for that last little bit of shadowy greeny goodness.
When I first saw the skateboard shot I couldn't think of anything to say. It's spectacular.
MyMaracas said…
Absolutely awesome photograph of the skateboad and arrows! Love the artwork, as well as the way you captured them.

I want to thank you for doing the collages, too. Having very little time to play online, I really appreciate being able to see everyone's entries at a glance, and to click through for a closer look and comment on those that catch my eye. You do a super job with this meme.

Wonderful collages again this week and your 'museum' photograph is wonderful indeed.
Hugs and blessings,
luvmyboys said…
I had to laugh about you running, digging for your camera! I think we can all relate.

Great job on this week's picture!
raf said…
Just learned about your wonderful concept from Lily Hydrangea and Sara Chapman, so this is a first go for me at SSS.

You had more than one arrow to pull you straight and quickly to the mark and you caught their shadows beautifully!
Lovely composition too with the shadow gallery collage!

As the American author, entertainer, Garrison Keilor often says, "Happy to be here!"
Janis said…
Every week you make me see something in a way I wouldn't have otherwise. So enlightening!

Thanks for the fabulous collages!
