Shadow Shot Sunday - Birthday girls



Shadow Shot Sunday is the place for the many interesting lighting effects. Hosted by Tracy at Hey Harriet in the sunny land of Oz, we look all about, inside and out for the obvious and/or elusive shadow.

This week we look at my favorite ladies, the lovely Patti (mom) and Allegra (daughter). Tuesday December 29 is a special day as they share the same birthday. Lady Allegra will turn 21, as always, a great kid. Her date of delivery was in1988, a week lake, but worth it, the perfect birthday gift to Patti.

Patti was born in the 20th Century, and that is all that I’ll say about that!

On the top, the firstborn arrived home on New Year's Day 1989. The shadow on the wall comes from the new mom admiring our new family member.






I took the first picture, but not the next two.

However, the light shadows complement the girls nicely as they were on a school trip to Paris awhile ago.


The beautiful spring day gives a warm shadows near the from the trees by the famous Champs-Élysées.

December 29 is a wonderful day, and the happiest of birthdays to these special ladies!

My daughter was born in January 1989 as well. What a coincidence!

Thanks for you comments on my llama shadow shot. I think you should have written the text instead of me!

I trust you will spoil the birthday girls rotten on 29 December. You blinked, didn't you, and your little baby Allegra is now 21! That's another milestone reached. Our "baby" is 34, so now we rely on the grandchildren to keep us in our place.

I hope you had a very happy Christmas and all the best for 2010.

Hey Harriet said...

What a special post and such lovely shadows! Wishing your lovely ladies the very best birthday celebrations on the 29th. What a great time to be celebrating a birthday, so close to seeing in the New Year! And a 21st at that! Maybe Allegra will just keep the celebrations happening all week long. A very happy New Year to you and your sweet family Ralph!

Happy Birthday to both! My father was born on Dec. 29. He, too was born in the 20th century - yikes, he will be turning 80. As the expression goes, until age 100 and 20 (that's a Jewish expression for may one live a long time).

Happy birthday to Patti and Allegra! What a special bond. Love the family photos and the Springtime Paris shadows too. Thanks for visiting my Scenic Shadow mosaic at Sacred Ruminations ... you know a day without shadows in Southern California at the beach is a rarity indeed ;-)
Glad you enjoyed your Christmas with family!
Hugs and blessings,
