Finding Shadows

Without light there would be no shadows.

I live in the UK, but when I was younger I spent several years travelling the world followed by a period living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Always nice not to get your own shadow in there too, as these photos can be tricky. Good selection Jude, and the beach shot transferred well from colour.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

  2. I like your new look here. Yellow makes for a happy place. Always makes me smile.

    I like your choices for the challenge and I like the bridge best as well, although I wouldn’t be caught crossing it. Eek. 😀

    1. Oh Tess, thank you 🙂 And no need to be scared on that bridge, it was very safe and very small and only crossed a very little river. The perspective makes it look much bigger than it really is!

    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. 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 😉

  3. 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.

  4. Did you actually go out and find ’em, Jude ? – if so, well done, mate ! 🙂
    I think it highly possible that you have shots like these in your voluminous files – along with everything else ! [grin]

    1. Haha, how well you know me M-R! No, I didn’t have chance to photograph new shadows (be a bit difficult with the recent dull weather, although I did get some impressive ones yesterday which I will post shortly), these were from a walk during my birthday trip to Dorset in October.
