Shadow Shot Sunday - Spanning the Globe



This is my first entry into Hey Harriet's stylish photo meme Shadow Shot Sunday. I became aware of this feature recently, and while I was at the Connecticut State Capitol and Legislative Office Building (LOB) on Tuesday, I saw this and thought that these shadows were the best. This is under the rotunda of the LOB near the door to the walkway to the Capitol. I see a globe with a clear demarkation of longitude and latitude, akin to this Atlas carrying the globe on his shoulders. On this day, I had the family camera, fresh batteries and nearly empty memory card - I am glad I remembered these...

Wonderful shadows, good eye...so let the addiction begin...my camera never leaves my side now. Pity the poor fool behind me on the highway, as I whip to the shoulder for the best shots or what my neighbors must think as I crawl around my yard following bugs...ahhhh, life is good!

But they've become more than just shadows to me now, they are a channel to many new friends all over the world...welcome friend!

Cool shadows and angle.
I wish I were better about carrying my camera around with me all the time. Wonderful that you had yours and could get this shot.

love this shadow. I can picture it as a company logo or used as a picture in powerpoint presentations. I love architecture and photography so this picture is soothing to me.
