You Capture – Shadows


I knew this challenge from Beth would probably be a hard one.  I usually don’t pay any attention to shadows.  And I had to look even harder than I originally thought.  We have had mostly cloudy weather since last week.  Yesterday I caught these two from our front porch. 



This morning the girls worked efficiently and got their school work done quickly, so we headed over to the dog park where there is also a playground.  I’ve been having the mommy guilt with our dog, Grace.  She is the sweetest chocolate lab you’ve ever met, but she’s getting old and slow and therefore isn’t very demanding…and if you live in a house with three kids and you want love and attention, you better be willing to be demanding otherwise you might not get any!  So I loaded Grace up in the truck along with the girls.  While the girls were playing on the playground equipment, I hung out with Grace and captured this picture. 



So for not really having a clue about how to go about taking pictures of shadows, I think they turned out pretty good. 

What did you capture this week?

  1. I love the scroll fencing. very pretty…would be even cooler if you turned it black and white. Swing by the IE Mommy to see my shadow shot and enter our photo poster giveaway! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very pretty fence shot. I love your Gracie too! What a sweet accomplice. My dog ate a brand new magazine and a roll of paper towels today. He lovingly spread them throughout the back yard in his attempt to get me outside. So helpful. Great shadow shots!

  14. I really like the composition of the second one and in the last one, it looks like your dog is dreaming about being in that tree – awesome!

  15. Really, really great shots! The shadow with your dog looks like he’s sitting on the tree branch!
