Shadow Shot Sunday - Graduating




Shadow Shot Sunday arrives a week after a most special Sunday, the university graduation of first-born Allegra. No doubt, the ceremonies this day were paramount.

Naturally, rubies, sepia subjects and even shadows figured in the photo taking as well. We both took turns with the camera, but the lovely Patti captured my shadows today. She is either taller or in the passenger seat :>)









Cameron (who also had a part in the ceremony) and I were conversing under the linear shadows - he is the tall one. We seemed to get ahead of Patti, and she had the camera...Allegra before the ceremony, along with a shadowy mortar board in the background. Finally, the Dodge casts a shadow in our path as we are leaving the University.

A special day and adorned with shadows too! See Tracy at Hey Harriet for shadows galore!

Congratulations! You must be so proud.

I think my favorite shadow in these is the cap and gown of someone just outside the picture.

What a momentous day for you and Patti, not to mention Allegra. It's an experience you'll never forget. Tony and I have been through this day with all three of our children, some of them coming back for more. I can feel the pride shining through your beautiful shots. Congratulations to all.
