Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #85

Dog Day Afternoon
(starring Sophie as Pooch Pacino)

I think I'll attempt to rob a bank today and spend all the money on Schmackos

My mid-yawn scary face should terrify people into handing over the cash without the need for a gun

Now, which bank to target?'s all too much really. I think I'll have a nap instead

The end.

It's a new year and so many more shadows yet to be hunted down! Thanks to all of you shadow shooters for bringing so much fun to this little meme each week. You guys are the best! I'm looking forward to another year filled with shadowy goodness! As is Sophie. Although Sophie prefers napping in her shadowy finds.

Happy Sunday!

This doggie is so full of emotion, and he shows it! I am so scared that he shows hit teeth (doesn't want to share the loot??). After her travails, the nap is well deserved!

Sophie plays a very smart Pooch Pacino, napping is always easier than robbing a banko :)
Thanks for hosting Shadow Shots Sunday, Tracy. Happy New Year!

Scary looking pooch, but I'm betting he isn't at all scary in person. Nice shots.

Aw, I see Sophie smiling at the corner of her mouth. Great shadow in the last one!

storyteller said…
I always enjoy the Shadow Gallery and your Shadow choices ... and today is certainly no exception. Love all the shots of Sophie posing as Pooch Pacino ;-)

I've shared 'fur-kid' shadows at Small Reflections today as well and am working on a mosaic to be shared later ... perhaps at Sacred Ruminations either this week or next depending on time constraints. Happy New Year!
Hugs and blessings,
Unknown said…
What a doggone day! Great shots, Tracy! Pooch Pacino needs a shot glass and a bandana and a plastic gun...
Happy NEW Year from the cold Midwestern USA!

Sophie tries to look ferocious but her heart doesn't seem to be in it.

Oops! I forgot to leave my link--Not much sunshine here lately, but I pulled a photo to share taken by my mom (maybe I can get her hooked on this fun SS meme too!).

Thanks, Tracy!

My Shadow Shot Sunday

Maybe Mr. Linky has a girl friend and staid out to late on NewYears Eve. LOL
Chubby Chieque said…
I guess our blog links doesn't need as we can press our name in "blue" though, after leaving Tracy a comment unless you don't have a blogsite, it doesn't work.

It works for me but to those who are unaware, here's my link:

Our name logged in Tracy's comments is easier than to copy & paste.

Here's my link for SSS. Maybe Mr Linky had a few too many champers on New Year's Eve and is still recovering?

Love your snowy shadow compilation here best I think - so strange to think they are freezing up there in orthern Hemisphere land - and we're dripping with sweat just thinking!

Adore Miss Pacino here - super shot - she does a very good impersonation of the real mini Italian man! (She's probably taller than him you know!) Love her sweet little white mittens!

Happy New Year Tracy!! Thank you again for SSS - such fun! Looking forward to more SSSs this year and chatting to you in blogland!! XXX's & OOO's Sam.
Patti said…
Pooch Pacino is cute. She didn't scare me a bit. She had a good nap, I hope.

Here's my shadow shot contribution:

Happy New Year Tracy! I do appreciate your hosting this fun meme. I took a bit of artistic license this week. I didn't want to miss out on SSS!

So how is summer going? The wind chill is pretty awful here today. Brrrrrr.

and so good at impressions

Happy New Year
Serendipity said…
Very cute! Happy new year :)
LOL! You and "Pooch Pacino" are too funny:D I think you both have a real future in film.

Soph is quite a good actor drawing on her yawning skills to evoke such a threatening look. Very good.
And your skillfully written dialogue...well, you've really gotten into the mind of the character. Impressive. Bravo!
I look forward to seeing more of your collaborations with Pooch Pacino;D

Happy New Year Tracy and Sophie!!
Jen said…
I think that dog was dreaming. ha!
great shadows. Happy 2010 to you!
Chubskulit Rose said…
I love his yawn hehehe.

MY SSS post. Have a great weekend!
Bravo! Bravo! (we are throwing change at the case you aren't getting it!!)
Love your shadow - we felt all the emotions in Sophie's character :)
Happy New Year to you well as your starlette!
Jazzbumpa said…
Now I understand, "Let sleeping dogs lie." And that's the truth.

EJ said…
He look handsome even on his yawn.

My shadow Shots, have a great weekend and a happy new year! said…
aww! what a cute doggie your Sophie is & what big dreams she has too!
I love how you have captured her in these photos with such neat shadows.
I hope your new year is happy Tracy.
hugs & : )
wanderlust said…
Oh, Sophie looks like so much fun! Interesting coincidence, we have a cat named Sophie. She's lots of fun, too!
muchlove said…

That third set is exquisite! And Sophie is a born character actor...
Sarah said…
Sophie is far too cute to be scary! I love the first photo especially and your caption. She looks like one of those ceramic temple dogs.
Happy New Year Tracy, and I look forward to many more shadow shot sundays in 2010!
Photography is such a's amazing how we can capture such precious moments of life and make them last forever. The shadow play reminds us just how easy it is to let little things, such as shadows, pass us by.

This is my first entry, and hopefully I did it right!

Taking picture of a moving pet is hard, but yours are just wonderful!

Thanks for the grins. Love the scary-face one.

Aww, Sophie - you couldn't really scare anyone, however hard you tried! Great fun :-)

After all that thinking, Sophie deserves her nap!

I love the snow montage - beautiful.

Lovely shadows dear Tracey! That Sophie deserves an Oscar... very cute!! I also love Vicki's shadow of an Angel, gorgeous.

Hope you have a wonderful new week!
Square Peg Guy said…
So many great features! Wow!

Happy New year!
GalleryJuana said…
Your Sophie puts on a good scary face and knows how to play the role of Pooch Pacino well!

I wonder if she likes dressing for the role as well?

Looking forward to more shots of Sophie.

And Happy New Year!
Kitty Stampede said…
OMIGAWD Tracy, these shots are incredibly hilarious. She is such a mobster...I can totally see her saying your captions..I was quaking in giggles when I seen this series. LOVE. She is OOZING with personality. Hope you had an amazing Christmas and New Years etc etc...Cheers to a Great Year ahead!
Pam Lefcourt said…
Tracy ~ Happy New Year to you! Here's my first shadow shot.....
I'd love some new followers!
Not to mention...some sales!
Dan Kent said…
Academy Award Winner! Yeahhh! Some Pooch! (and great shots.) :)
Unknown said…
Happy 2010..may you have a fab year! I am still slow in posting...way too lazy, it's a disease :( Once I get lazy, cant drag my butt to do I blame it all on the holidays in December!

Pooch Pacino ? You are so funny and totally original with that! Hey, Sophie does do a mean mid-yawn, that will scare the securities at the banks meanwhile her sidekick (that's you I guess) go take all those cash..hey, keep some for me will ya haha!

Great shadows as usual, love it and yawn...I think I need a nap too.

Chrisy said…
whahoo this blog is goin off hot hot!...expect Miss Sophie's been enjoyin the cloudy days...
Great idea Sophie! the nap I mean.

You should pin that middle photo on your letter box to chase away foxtel salesmen. I might even print it out and stick it on my front fence. My dog just stands there and looks dumb. When she's really nervous, her mouth mimes barking movements. If only she could find her postman barking voice at other times.

Happy New Year Tracy!
Tracy said…
Hi, Tracy! Happy New Year! Great to be back from our trip and catching up with you here... Feeling jet-lagged and heart-fuzzy after a sweet Christmas, good to be back home and in blogland. Your pooch pics are incredibly funny...tee-hee! And a great start to a new year of SSS! Wishing you & yours all the very best of love, peace & joy in 2010, my friend :o) ((HUGS))
