Shadow Shots: Shopping and more Shopping

Seems like I end up at the grocery far too often, especially with Thanksgiving coming and many hungry people headed to my door.

I found these shadows in the Stop N' Shop parking lot early one morning.

Isn't it amazing where we find shadows?..What I mean, we never noticed them before, now we are so tuned in..Great pictures.

Bob-kat said...

I just love the ones of the shopping trolley's. The lines of the shadows are fab:)

~Just Me Miranda~ said...

Wow this is such a cool idea for pictures. Every week I'm finding more and more ideas. I think I may have to try this some time

Raven said...

I love those shopping cart shadows. Very cool.

Sweet Repose said...

I really like the last shot with the one wheel up in the corner, gives your imagination a hint.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Great shots, Diane...

Job well done, again & hope you had a wonderful Sunday evening.

Cheers!

bobbie said...

Love these, especially the shopping cart shadows.

Alissa Nicolau said...

These shots are super. I'm into the second one most. I love to devour Stop n Shops own line of steamed dumplings - check them out!

Cherie said...

You have been busy! Good luck feeding the crew on Turkey Day! :)

Hello! I'm with Bobbie. I love the cart shadow.

Ah. You have a Stop N' Shop? We used to and Shoprite bought them out. Beings we have a Shoprite down the street, they closed the Stop N'shop. I was very disappointed. They had the best muffins, lunch meat and produce. Lisa

Hey Harriet said...

How wonderful finding cool shadows in a parking lot! Love the shopping trolley shadows! Hope you're having fun with all your visitors! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Dianne said...

rosebud - I know exactly what you mean - all these different photo projects are really helping me see things

bob-kat - thanks, I love the lines too :)

just me - it's especially easy in the morning when only a few people give you strange looks lol

raven - thanks :)

sweet - thank you, I cropped that one a few different ways and liked this the best

richie - thank you!! your post today was lovely :)

bobbie - thanks, I love the lines - your tall shadow was great, you and mary are twins this week

alissa - thanks
I love steamed dumplings but have never seen them at my place, I'll have to look harder ;)

cherie - thanks!! my DIL got the turkey this morning for $5!!!
20 lb bird for $5 - she turned in all her Shoprite points lol
so of course she spent the savings on Pyrex dishes

lisa - we have everything - there is a Pathmark, a Stop N' Shop and a Shoprite within 5 minutes and they're opening a Food Town in a few months. and there's even more choices within a few added miles. when we first came here from NY I was fascinated by all the choices, I grew out of that lol

hey harriet - bringing my camera with me everywhere really makes errands more fun :)

Ralph said...

If these shadows were devoid of such things as wheels and paint stripes, the objects would not be obvious - the shopping cart without its wheels could be a cages; the shadow alone could be of a mountain with the sun behind it...Or an amorphous shadow of a blob.

Now I'm thinking of shadows!

It does seem that you are always shopping doesn't it (it never fails that we forget something on the list!!)
Our favorite is #2 - great shadows!!
Enjoy your week!
Karla & Karrie

Jan said...

Nice choices for this week. I like the middle one best.

Dianne said...

ralph - I tried to get just the lines but the angle was never right

karla/karrie - plus people keep eating things as soon as I bring them home ;)

jan - thanks :)

Jill said...

I like the shopping carts--even beauty at the market!

Lisa B. said...

How fun...great shots for the week before Thanksgiving! I'm wondering if any of your fellow shoppers wondered what in the heck you were doing?! lol.

Rambling Woods said...

This is a very interesting meme..You are clever with these shots..

dot said...

Neat shots especially the shopping carts.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I like the shopping cart one. Cool!

Carletta said...

The last shopping cart shadow is my favorite - I think it's the color I'm drawn to.

Dianne said...

jill - thanks :)

lisa b - always!! sometimes I think they think I'm crazy or some kind of CSI cop lol

rambling - thanks!! I love the various photo projects, stretches my imagination :)

dot - thanks!! been meaning to tell you - the new layout at World in Black and White looks so good :)

lily - thanks :) the carts are the winner hands down

carletta - that color made me think of cool rainy early morning :)

Twinkle Star Art said...

I felt as though I spent my entire weekend in shopping centers. I love the green and brown tones in your trolly shots :)

Olga said...

The shopping cart is great!

Dianne said...

twinkle - I know the feeling!! and I'm going back today OY!!
I'm glad you liked the tones - I played with that for a bit

olga - thanks!!

pink dogwood said...

They are all good, but I think the last one is my favorite :)

Michelle O'Neil said...

I love how your eye catches these moments. Moments most of us would not be present for. Thanks for the reminder.

Dianne said...

pink - I like the color of the last one the best :)
thanks!!

michelle - thank you!! that's a really cool thing to say. I owe a lot of it to all these photo memes, they really awaken my creative spirit and all the people who participate are so supportive and complimentary.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

It's interesting on each post how the mind fills out the rest of the photo even though it only includes a suggestion of each. What we see and what the mind interprets become indistinguishable.

Ali said...

Hey! nice shots! I really like the first one - simple lines - looks great!

Dianne said...

robert - that is one of the things I love about photography :)

ali - thanks, I like simple lines :)

Patti said...

I like these photos a lot, especially the second one.
I spend way too much time at the food store too, but I really don't mind. It's rather recreational, since I can't afford any other sort of shopping.

Now I'm going to be looking for shadows..I may have to play along!

It's just like looking for red stuff for Ruby Tuesday ~ just gets into your brain I guess.

FCP said...

Nice lines and shadow patterns!
great shots,
Faye

Gina said...

Great shadows..love the last one the best! :D
