Finding Shadows

Without light there would be no shadows.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Well the top one is a bit of a cheat as I have posted that in colour recently, but I was in a hurry. Shadows can be very addictive 😉

    1. Thanks Sylvia – that particular shot has been on a post previously in colour, but I was short of time to hunt for another one, though I do have loads of shadows lurking on my hard drive 😉

    1. Thanks Sue! I saw one fence shadow and that looked out for others. I do like shadows, but then I like photographing most things! I really ought to be more selective.

  1. This is one of your champion posts. Every shot is quite perfect – and again I enjoyed the buzz of yellow! The fences are quite ordinary but the shadows are definitely not.

    1. I know you are fond of shadows too – I remember your post from Europe. It’s like once you see one you see them everywhere! The yellow is cheering me up I must say, but I have a feeling I may change it a few times 😉

  2. Love the beach shot! I thought you’d been off-line and thought you might be ill but you were busy playing with benches 🙂 Something to tide you over those winter months. Soon be Spring! Or am I fooling myself? 🙂

    1. Maybe off Jo, but not ill o_O No I have been busy writing some garden posts which have taken ages because of all the photos to edit, and a walk for you, which hopefully will appear some time tomorrow – I have to finish that off too! Went to visit English children this weekend in Wiltshire (well, one lives there, the others met up there) for our Christmas lunch – we seem to have created a tradition where OH and I take the whole family to the pub around Christmas! Bit expensive, but a whole lot of fun! A new baby due in a month too so lots to look forward to. And spring! YES!

    1. I didn’t have time to think of some different way to interpret this challenge, but I have just had a quick look at your post and found it extremely moving. I will read it more thoroughly tomorrow and comment. Just wanted to say that I agree with everything you have written.

  3. Love shadows, so many times they are more interesting than the actual subject! You did a nice job with the composition!
