Hey I especially like the 'question mark' shaped shadow in the second photo! These are great.

Happy first time. Again ;)

I was wondering how it was standing there in the hall without leaning against the wall and then I saw it had feet! Ha! Great Shadow Shot, Dianne! I'm participating for the first time in this meme! :)

brownstudies said...

Great shots! Thanks for sharing.

I have one up this week too.

Jan said...

Dianne, these are great. I especially like the first one.

CrystalChick said...

This is a very interesting picture!! Shadows are so neat.

Rosebud Collection said...

Now that is neat..What a great shadow. Isn't it amazing where we see shadows, when we start looking?
Happy SSS..

Cherie said...

Wicked cool! My first impression was of some sort of friendly snake or inch worm. Then, I thought it might be some dental device. Now, I'm thinking it might be a balancing tool of some sort. What is it? What is it? :D

Cherie said...

Okay, so I can't read. Sue me! I looked three times before I posted; I swear! LOLOLOL

Alissa Nicolau said...

Really great shadow shots! I love that they are close up and so strong.

Hi Dianne! Very interesting. The first and third photo look like a question mark. The second photo has an eerie feel to it. I love it. Lisa

Tina said...

Sweet Repose said...

How cool is that...what we see when we open our eyes wide.

Dianne said...

Welcome to shadow shots :)

jan - thanks!! I took about 10 shots and then played a bit, these were my favorites.

crystalchick - I've always been a sucker for shadows LOL
now it's fun to find new ones :)

rosebud - I had passed it in the hall a million times and then I saw it ;)

cherie - I love all your guesses!!! far more interesting than an old cane lol

alissa - thank you - it is a very narrow hall and the light was so strong, just a perfect shadow moment

lisa - the sun was out for a moment in the second one and then I warmed the light, it is eerie - which of course I enjoy lol

tina - thanks for coming by. I'm running so late this week on everything
glad you like the shadows :)

sweet - I had a teacher who would always say - 'stop looking and start seeing' - shadows make me think of him

raven - thanks!!

storyteller said...

Very ‘kewl’ shadow shot today … it fits so well with your blog theme doesn’t it?
Hugs and blessings,

Elizabeth said...

Such fun searching for those elusive shadows.
Yours are winners.

Lisa B. said...

Nice shapely neck...he needs a break and some big eyes! lol:D Neat shot!

Melli said...

I think I NEED one of them... but I'm in denial.

M.Kate said...

Beautiful SSS..very clear and nice :D

Dianne said...

storyteller - so many questions, so little time :)

elizabeth - thanks!!

lisa b - he did remind me of a swan at one point ;)

melli - ever since I tore up my ankle I have a new respect for the power of a cane!

m.kate - thanks!!

amy said...

That turned out to be one of the most fun shadow shots i've seen in a while. Happy SSS to you!

Gallery Juana said...

It is amazing how inanimate objects seem to have a personality of their own. Great angles and shadows.

The Summer Kitchen Interiors said...

We thought it looked like a snake at first too....then we saw what it was and laughed....our kids loved playing with our grandmother's cane so much that she never knew where it was half the time!

me ann my camera said...

Perhaps a Fiddlehead fern, throwing a shadowy suggestion of spring on the wall; but no, just a wishful thought on my part. Shadows have a wonderful extension of reality about them. Very nice.

Dianne said...

amy - thanks!! glad you thought it was fun :)

summer kitchen - it's funny, my cat Siren is really afraid of the cane with feet. all I have to do is move it an inch and he takes off!! yet he plays with the other standard cane. I guess the feet make the difference.

me ann - 'extension of reality' is a great way to describe the allure of shadows!

Olga said...

It's great how everyday objects make for such interesting shadows.

Magical Moments with Me and Mine said...

Fantastic ss, thanks for your comments on my first sss.

maryt/theteach said...

Dianne, come by my blog to read a letter to Barack Obama by Alice Walker, the author. I promise you'll love it! :)

Patti said...

Wonderful photos of the cane's shadow. The first one looks like a snake that has been charmed.

The second one looks like a question
mark and the third one .. kinda creepy looking for some reason.

Carmi said...

I love the mood of these pictures, Dianne. It's always challenging to effectively capture shots with such deep shadows, but you've made it look easy here.

You have such an eye for composition!

Pagan Sphinx said...

That's a great shadow shot, Dianne. I especially like the middle one - it has a snake-like appearance that's mysterious as well as daunting. It commands respect, somehow. I hope that makes some sort of sense to someone else besides me! :-)

Hugs

Dianne said...

olga - it is :) that's why I love shadows, makes the ordinary extraordinary

magical - you're welcome! I loved your first SS and look forward to many more :)

mary - I will!! I love Alice Walker

patti - a lot of people think the 2nd one is creepy LOL
isn't it cool how everyone sees something different, another reason I love photography.

carmi - thank you so much!! I struggle over my editing and I question myself and just genrally make myself artistic nutso so to receive such a lovely compliment is so wonderful.

pagan - makes sense to me and that's what counts LOL
I like the 2nd one because I played with the light so much abd actually got the feel I wanted. a tiny victory :)

Hilary said...

Very cool shadow pics. It kind of reminds me of my cats' "gonna feed me?" tail.

Dianne said...

hilary - oh yes!! the feed me tail, I know it well :)

Ron said...

oooh...Dianne...I've got to tell you....

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shots!

I'm a big lover of old movies, and these shots remind me of all those wonderful shadow images you see in those films.

AWESOME, dear lady!

annette said...

Nice shadows Dianne, the first is my favourite, the way the light is highlighted on the stick, well done:0)

Dianne said...

ron - thanks!! I love that it reminds of something so lovely

annette - thank you for noticing the light. I played with that one for a bit.

dot said...

The second one looks like a snake!
