Shadow Shot Sunday - Tropical Shadows
Shadow Shot Sunday arrives courtesy of Tracy down under in Brisbane. The shadowy world today appears in a sub-tropical exposure, sunny and hot. Although the teal water laps onto the shore, the heated solar orb above compels us to find any available shade to cool down - even though the lone chair has now moved out of the shade...
The time is 1986, the place is Paradise Island in the Bahamas. The always lovely Patti and I are not really sunbirds, and we seek shade under trees and umbrellas for protection sans SPF 45 sunblock. So the minimal shade provided by the tropical trees is welcoming.
The old print was scanned, and despite the not-so-optimal effects of age, the azure Bahamian cay, blue sky and shadows jump at us. Another visit someday...see shadows in any climate at the always fun Hey Harriet!
