Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #110


Some soft and subtle shadows found at the Gallery of Modern Art

I was so very saddened this week to hear the news about Bobbie passing away last weekend. Bobbie posted her first shadow shot in October 2008 and has been regularly joining in ever since. I've enjoyed getting to know Bobbie and have always found her to be an inspiration, especially with regards to her ongoing support towards human rights issues. Bobbie blogged about injustices throughout the world and passionately advocated for equal rights and fairness for all. Bobbie was a tireless campaigner for peace. May you now rest in peace Bobbie. You will be greatly missed my friend and I hope you are aware of the positive impact you've had on so many lives. I hope you know. Please know the difference you've made.

My deepest sympathies to Bobbie's family. Thanks to Bobbie's daughter Kitty for updating Bobbie's blog.


Bobbie's Shadows
[a selection of some of my faves from Bobbie from the last couple of years]

I'm not going to end this post with the usual 'Happy Sunday' (not that I don't wish you all a happy Sunday, I do of course!) but I'll end with a quote instead. A quote that was introduced to me through Bobbie...

"The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough" - Rabindranath Tagar

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #109


This is a combination of two slightly different photos taken of the same area, each cropped, one flipped, and then placed together. I was trying to be a little creative to make up for the initial laziness of the actual shooting of the photos. While visiting shadow shooter blogs late last Sunday afternoon I noticed in the corner of the study/studio/spare room, these power cord shadows. As I had not long ago uploaded some photos to the computer, the camera was still within reach so I didn't even have to move from my chair to snap these. The blue wall is much darker in reality than it appears in the pics. There are three blue walls in my house. When I first moved in the plan was to paint over them. I moved in three months ago today. Remember the whole lazy thing I mentioned earlier? Yup...

For a look at a less lazy shadow shot feel free to pop on over to my other blog. That one was taken earlier on the same day as the photo above. And I did have to venture away from my chair to find those shadows.

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #107






Queensland Police patrolling the Roma Street Parkland area on horses. This isn't something I see very often so it was an exciting discovery for me. That would explain why I took so many photos. I'm easily amused!

For those who may not know, long time regular SSS contributor Gemma recently started a great weekly meme called Weekend Mailbox. I participated this week via my other blog. If interested in joining in the fun head over to Gemma's Greyscale Territory blog. Here in Australia we are allowed to have weird and wacky mailboxes. This isn't the case for many parts of the world, so Gemma is very flexible around the theme.

Happy Sunday!
