From sunny Brisbane, Hey Harriet offers the meme Shadow Shot Sunday that is fun work that never tires us. We search for unique shadows almost incessantly, and without warning they appear, yet not always apparent at first glance.
Regular readers know I like old cars. Here the intrepid photographer sees a restored 1955 Ford Fairlane, resplendent in a rich burgundy paint. And with blindingly bright chrome that these old land yachts carried acres of. The shadow I am interested in is in the curvaceous rear bumper. The thin shadow follows the curb (kerb?) from the sidewalk over and up, following the edge of the shiny steel contour. Of course, the photographer leaves a shadow on the sidewalk - why not participate in this shadowy world, too??
The front bumper sits on the sunny side of the street, so the shadows are even less apparent. The most obvious one sits under the chassis, with the equally curvy contour replicating the 1955 stylish Ford arc. The more subtle one seems the be the reflection of (who else but?) me. In my 'chair, I seem to be surrounded by a snaky shadow created by the brilliant sunny orb in the background.
Yes, looking for shadows is a task we never tire of. See the great photo artists from all parts of the globe at this most fun meme!
