Shadow Shot Sunday - Urban eclectic

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, and I offer a couple of items taken in Derby (CT) recently, and both vastly different items have shadows that are defined yet do not jump at us - however compel us to view the entire scene to find them. At least I think so...shadows that may or may not jump at us can be found at SSS2

Very cool shot of the tubas(?) or, brass instruments-they look like they are floating in air!

excellent angle on the tubas- I thought at first they were part of a giant sculpture! Have a great day! HOpe it's warming up and not raining so much!

How big are those tubas any way?? Great shots. Love the irises!

Hi Ralph,
Others have commented on the size of the tubas, and I agree! You captured a wonderful trick shot, the man in the blue shirt makes the tubas appear enormous!

Have a good weekend!

Brass instruments are always amazing to look at with the various reflections and shadows that play on their surface

Ralphie: I like the photos ;-)

Subtle shadows in those not-so-subtle tubas. I don't know how they carry those things while marching. The irises are beautiful too.

Thanks for your comment on the birdbath - and yes, the woodchucks do drink from it and climb in for a soak on hot days. They consider it their personal spa.

The reflection and shadows play such interesting parts in your photos.

Lovely blue flowers and you are so right. The shadows lend depth.

The tubas look as if they are being carried on shoulders - much like a litter! They seem weighty! Interesting perspective of them that stirs the intriguing questions! And love the shadow play in the second photo!
