Shadow Shot Sunday - Scanned Sunset Shadows


Shadow Shot Sunday returns...the fun of scanning old prints is in the memories, yet do I remember the event? Here in a shadowy sort of, I think I recall the what, where and when of this view. The place is in the passenger seat of a Subaru GL hardtop, the place on Interstate 90, Massachusetts Turnpike between Boston and Worcester, the time late in 1981 or early 1982. Either year, it would have been taken with a Canon 50mm rangefinder and most likely a roll of Kodak ASA100 film. Given all that, the sun just falling over the treeline is dramatic and the hint of shadow falls across the westbound lanes of asphalt as the sun sets. Although my exact memory is not so clear, the barely edited print itself is in reasonably good shape...see more shadowy views from any era at the always fun SSS2

You're forgiven if you can't quite remember where and when the photo was taken, because all of our memories become shadowy with the passing of time!

Ah, nothing like those wonderful memories and it's always fun to be "on the road again" -- whenever, then or now!! Great capture for the day, Ralph! Hope you and Patti have a good weekend! Stay warm!

At least you've got memories thru your photos! Nice view of the sunset.

Cool not remembering, Bro? It is in our age, I guess? Too much too remember when you had a great moment that very time.

You captured the sweet shot, anyways.

Hope you have a great w/end.

Hugs from D´Box,

What lovely captures of light rays and contrasts. I like the serene feeling to this beautiful photo.

Ah! I'v used many a roll of that film and I think you are right in it being the Kodak ASA 100 as that is the kind of look I'd get with my sunset shots. Very warm and beautiful.

Regardless of where and when this was taken, it is a lovely sight. I have not seen it before.

Love the glare of the sun and those dark shadows! Great idea to scan all those photos. When i was looking at some older ones - they are already yellowing and fading -like some memories. lol

It's magical that we get to see this sight every day (or night).

It worries me, sometimes, that so many memories have faded or vanished. And it worries me that all our photos now are just electronic shadows, so ephemeral, barely real. I'm glad you have so many you can still hold in your hand.

I can see it now - the sun is shining! Days are longer, 10 hours, so it will be better day by day. Soon we can say bye bye to winter...

Dear Ralph .. this is a very warm and pretty shadow shot even if most people may think asphalt may not be such a pretty landscape? LOL
It has a beautiful setting sun and that always dresses up a picture for me !

Hard to believe we used ancient methods of taking pictures back then?LOL
