Shadow Shot Sunday

A little Note: I created a photo blog a while back called The Pagan's Eye, where I posted photos I've taken: a slight nod to my creative side and a wink to my flirtation with  digital polaroids.  I haven't been taking many in recent months due to busy-ness with work, school and family. I just noticed that the last photo I posted at The Pagan's Eye was from November 11. The space from that past-time has given me time to think about whether I want to keep a photo blog just for those photo themes (or memes).

It got to be addicting with a different theme for every day of the week:  Ruby Tuesday, Mellow Yellow Monday, SkyWatch Friday, etc. (My apologies for not linking to the bloggers who host them weekly.)  I think I am going to leave up that blog as a diary of what has caught my eye but resume posting entries to the photo memes on this blog. Only less of them. Mary the Teach's two memes - Ruby Tuesday and Window Views and Doorways, are really fun and Mary is a very cool lady. And SkyWatch Friday because it is just as vast as its name-sake, with skies from all over the globe, represented. And last but not least, Shadow Shot Sunday, which is hosted by Hey Harriet - the Photo Surrealist of the blog universe!  Thanks Tracie!

  1. The angles in the gallery so catch my eye. The top look is stunning, the obtuse angle of the light streaming through the tall windows leaves even longer shadows. The window pane is great against he blue wall. I am seeing a zebra in technicolor as well as B&W, The final view connects arcs and right angles nicely. Al beautiful captures!

  2. An excellent set of photos. I must admit that I have been running a bit out of steam. There are times when visiting pother participants becomes a chore rather than fun.

    I'm sure that will change soon enough as I get the chance to take new photos

  3. Ralph: Hi! I love your groovy, meandering comments! Always packed full of lovely details. Thank you!

    Jams: I had steam a-plenty and a ton of photos at first but then I got real busy and hardly took any photos and now I have a few photos and downsizing makes a lot of sense. It does take the fun away when one fully engages in these photo games.
    Thanks for relating.

  8. The long shadows create a sense of subdued eternity marked by a series of chess boards in waiting! Fascinating!

  11. I really like the light and shadows in these. All of them... I think the first and last are my favorites, but they're all well shot, and interesting views. They call attention to the light and shadow.

  16. Good stuff. I've seen some of these theme names around the blogs. I wondered where they came from. I have so many photos from the past, some when tried my hand at photography as art. You've motivated me to dig them out and post a few here and there.
    Art. What a concept.

    Peace to all.

  17. Excellent! The first one is my favorite overall, but I also really like the illuminated bursts of color in the others.

  18. Excellent captures. The shadows add to the art, in my opinion, emphasizing the artist's vision. And in the first one, the shadows ARE art.
