Fun With Shadows

I have three small tree/shrubs in my back yard close to the house. This week as I was walking through my living room I noticed the shadow being cast by one of them on my window, so being the shadow shot nut that I am, I grabbed my camera.
The funny thing is as I started to focus on my subject I noticed that the shadow was moving.
The wind was blowing making the limbs move. Here you can see part of the limbs.

But, wait just a few seconds and you can see more of the limbs.

Here you can see all three tree/shrubs.
I always have fun finding and posting shadow shots, but this week was especially fun as I watched the wind change the shadows.
I hope you enjoy my shots. And, that you head over to Hey Harriet to see what others have posted this week.

Downtown Shadows

Often while walking to the Post Office or the Bank I see interesting shadows and wish that I had my camera. So I started carrying it with me as I do my errands.

Here are a few I found a few weeks ago.

The clock outside the Bank stands tall and casts its shadow on the sidewalk.

Just down from the Bank is a small patio area for one of the office buildings. The light post and trees were calling out to me as I walked by. The light post's shadow reminds me of a pear.

I think that my favorite shadow downtown is the shadow that the iron fence around the Veterans Statue at the old Courthouse casts. Not really sure what it is that I like so much about it.

The way it curves? The length? The way that you can see the details of the fence itself in the shadow? Maybe it is all of those things. Anyway, I hope that you enjoy the pictures. And, be sure visit Hey Harriet to see what unique shadows others have posted this week.
