Shadow Shot Sunday - Driveway meandering

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back this week - and simple summer shadows were jumping at me with camera in hand...who can resist? The weather has been strange up here with lots of humidity and lots of rain with bold sunny hints on occasion - such as on Thursday where the electrical contractor attaching the wiring on a new utility pole in our yard - and the electricity was wisely shut off. With no lights or computer inside, like kids our playground was moved outside. The flowers, mulberry tree and ramp had shadows both amorphous and well defined which adds another dimension to the usual and ordinary...see more of the shadowy world at SSS2

Oh, what contortions we bloggers have to go through when the electricity is off!

Such lovely, summery shadow shots for the day, Ralph! Sometimes it's good when we have to leave the house and find a new playground! Hope you have a great weekend!

Loving the ramp shadows especially . And, was that 'plaid was in' photo on your blog last week? Or earlier? If so, I hadn't noticed it, but it did bring a big smile to my face!

Amazing how no electricity is now like a snuffled candle, a broken lifeline! But that is not always a bad thing! We seek forgotten pleasures and may even enjoy them! Love the bold shadows in the second photo!

It is funny when knowing electricity play so important in one's life. Just think of our past §:-)

I still recall, living in the countryside with no electricity. Everything must be done by two bare hands and imagine? We had a great time and wonderful life with a survival history. Nowadays, just an hour brown-out, we are anxious or even notorious just because we can't reach the net. Hilarious life, as I say. 20th century!

Not just your weather is going abnormal. I guess, it's all over the continent.

Have a great w/end, lil Bro and to Mrs. P.

I imagine grabbing that imaginary guard rail and walking along the shadow.

Until it goes out, we don't realize how much of our lives revolve around all things electrical. And look what you would have missed if you hadn't had to "go outside and play"!
