Shadow Shot Sunday - The Graduate


Shadow Shot Sunday, hosted by Tracy from Brisbane, is so much fun as we find shadows here, there and everywhere.

Like scenes from 1993 and Allegra's 'graduation' from pre-school. A milestone of sorts, even though she attended for only one 'semester'. However the school had a party for the graduates.

There were diplomas, food, punch, games, and fun for all (if you were little). As well, proud parents, grandparents and siblings were witness to the event. Allegra sits under shadows, intent on listening to the speaker. Little brothers were invited for the fun, and Cameron took part in the shade as well. He didn’t need protection from the sun here, but is resplendent in those sunglasses - I haven't seen a pair of Mickey's since…well, ever!
(This post from the past is an edit from one of my favorite memes, Ruby Tuesday. This was well before noticing shadows became a passion…). See the fun world of shadows at Hey Harriet’s fun meme - hope your internet is settled soon!

I get as much of a kick out of your words as I do your Shadow Shots! So nicely put. Real cuties lolling in the shadows!

Paula Scott said...

Cool shots! Would be fun to see the high school shots too and eventually the college shots! They grow up quickly...

Sam said...

What cuties they both are! Allegra looks so pretty and intense there - I wonder what has caught her attention - those blue eyes are so expressive! Cameron looks very chic on those glasses - I love the way little folk will wear anything they like and wear it with confidence! So cute!

Have a lovely week!

Hey Ralph! What fun memories... Those sunglasses are the BEST! Does Cameron still have them?? What a cutie!
Allegra does look very engrossed in the big day. Perhaps she was wondering when it was time for fun & games?!!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Dimple said...

Cute! I think Cameron has your nose!

EG Wow said...

Allegra looks so serious. I bet she is a super-good listener. And Cameron is so cute in the Mickey sunglasses. I want a pair!

MyMaracas said...

What beautiful children! Your lovely photos have captured their personalities, as well. You're making some great memories.

And now the little children are but a memory. We see them in the photos but they are shadows of our past.

Today our youngest son, 40, came to celebrate his father's 75th birthday. Beside me a picture of a baby, in diapers holding a bottle. Could that be the same person?

When they graduate,
you know they’re growing up and
soon will leave the nest.

Sweet shadow shots. I can't believe how fast their childhoods go...into the shadows?

Hugs and blessings,
