Neon Shadows



Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back as we scurry to locate shadowy items from far and wide. Yet, Allegra's '96 Plymouth Neon, today parked in the road and mostly under the mulberry tree beckoned...The shadows that fell onto the vehicle were akin to stylish ones posted for SSS of an old  Edsel similarly under a tree...I like the old red Neon in fantastic shape for its age, the cute 'face' that said 'Hi' in the period TV and print ads. At any rate, the shadowy world was a mere 40-ft (12m) from the front door. Never let a shadow get away :)


We like the old Neon advertisements that say Hi, even though Allegra was quite young when they first appeared...

What great shadow shots for the day, Ralph! I love the red car and thanks for sharing the commercial! That surely brought back a memory or two! Have a great Labor Day Weekend!

The Neon certainly scrubs up well in the shadow world of the street! It looks stunning!

Great shadow shot. The shadows and reflections in the car are wonderful. Red cars must be popular on your street, as your first shot shows two of them.
We shadow seekers can't let those shadow opportunities go by without grabbing our cameras. Sometimes they are hard to come by. With Issac approaching my neck of the woods the coming week doesn't look good for seeing many shadows.
Hope you enjoy your Labor Day weekend.

A shiny red Plymouth and wonderful shadows...what a fine combination. My first car was an old brown, 2 door Plymouth coupe with a split windshield. It was my pride and joy...my ticket to freedom. YOur post brings back memories even if mine was a dull old brown. genie
