Super meme Shadow Shot Sunday, by Brisbane artiste Tracy, reappears again, and we are ready!
Last Sunday I attended my non-profit’s fund raiser, known as a Wheel-a-Thon. In this, teams compete to push a manual wheelchair around a course with ramps, gravelly pavement, grass and the usual cones that define the course.
I wasn’t a participant, and had no assigned duties. So, point-and-shoot in tow, I looked for shadowy delights - and found them! The cone is shaped perfectly. The photographer less so...This was a perfect morning, starting at a cool 58°F, rising to a satisfying 72°F (22°C) by noon. Dry and blue, shadows were to appear, and not by accident (mostly). The place is in West Haven (CT), alongside the Long Island Sound estuary. The beach and walkway along the shore would soon fill up with people, but early on few were there. That made it easy to capture easy to spot shadows of benches and planters...
I suspected a fine day of capturing shadows when I arrived at the Savin Rock Conference Center. Arcs, angles and foliage combine with the early day sun to showcase the beautiful day.The walkway has a number of flags and banners along its way - and this one with its well-defined shadow.
This view typifies a very nice day, the day to be outside. The West Haven beach is a nice place to be on a sunny day. Happily for us, we are only 20 min away, and before Winter there are other days to hunt shadows on the shore...See lots of shadowy art at Hey Harriet!
