Shadow Shot Sunday - Suburban

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 arrives for the week. We often look for the unique and artistic. Yet in the suburban Ansonia Uplands, the artistry is often lost in the mundane, However in the shadow world, we cannot necessarily determine what is true art - unless it jumps at us...








Upon arriving home yesterday, and upon the powering open the sliding door and ramp after transferring into the wheelchair, I saw meme ready shadows. Where? 
On the ramp, the ground and the house. Not to mention a reflection or two, inside and out.
Friday was a fine day, especially after the earlier week's days of a gray mist and fog. A pleasant 70°F (21°C) with blue skies leaves for mundane suburban shots that are disarmingly nice. And with shadows to see that announce SSS2 - see more pf the shadowy environment  at this very fun meme!

Great shadow shots for the day, Ralph! And it is amazing where we find those shadows once we start looking for them!! They do give a whole new perspective to our world! Hope you and Patti have a great weekend with lots of sunshine and shadows1

Close-to-home shadows are some of the most endearing!

One of the best things about photography is that it teaches us that nothing is mundane! :))
