Shadowy Fun

My pictures this week are some that were taken while my daughter and her friend were out in the yard being silly. I thought the shadows were kind of cool.

They were also jumping on the trampoline and I managed to capture one mid air shot just as the sun was going down.

I hope you enkoy the pictures and that you head over to Hey Harriet to see the shadows that others have found this week.


  1. The views of our children are always wonderful, they play and grow. And we intent to capture it all!

    Children at play leave playful shadows, too. Parents look in awe as we know they are to row and not stay as young as now. Capture the moment, so we will never forget these nice moments!

  2. The second shot, especially, radiates joy!


    I once had a shadow—or did she have me?
    My shadow and I could never agree.
    I would say something, she’d say the reverse;
    Our arguments flared, my lips I would purse,
    Refusing to speak to her anymore—
    So my shadow got up and marched out the door!
    I have not seen her from that day to this—
    That’s one stubborn shadow I surely don’t miss!

  3. The trampoline shot is great, but I really like the two shadows on the lawn. They seem to say a lot about girlhood, which is over too soon, and then we're a long time old.

    Love that second one - a super silhouette!

    Thanks for visiting.

  6. Awwwwwwwww, to be young and 'silly' with friends. Looks like fun to me. Great shadows.

    Vintage 1930's Basketball Team is my Shadow Shot today. Do stop by if you can find time.

    Happy Sunday!!!

  7. Fantastic mid-air shot! Shadow shots like the first one all but come to life with their own personality.

  8. That second shot is so much fun!! You captured it just right. :)

  9. How fun, I love them both! And I'm totally impressed that your mid-air one came out so clear - I'm not sure that my camera could pull that off :)

  10. How fun...girls doing what girls do best!

  11. I sort of miss those Shadow Sunday memes...but I still think about them ;)

  12. I love those silly shadows! Silly is fun! The girls look like they're having a great time goofing around on the grass. I hope you have a great week :)

  13. I love these shadow pictures!!! The one of the two girls shadowed is fabulous! I need to try to work with shadow pics and my wee ones!


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you take a moment to leave a message or two. I love hearing what you think of my posts!
