Shadow Shots: Follow That Truck

Camera Critters is right below

I hate being stuck behind big trucks on the road, it feels so closed in. But I did capture this shadow.

That's nice in black and white. Not bad for being stuck behind the dreaded truck!

Happy Day to you, my good friend.

All the love,

Ha! You're a good driver, seems to, eh? *wink

The B&W shot is nice. brings more dramatic touch of the photo.

ENjoy your Sunday!

Good one. Yes, it has come to this. Even in traffic, I am content if I can capture a shadow. Guess you feel the same.

Oh, I hope you weren't driving and shooting at the same time! lol

Nice way to make lemonade out of lemons. Fun shot.

Hey Harriet said...

You captured a nice shadow there! Gorgeous in black & white! I don't like being behind trucks either. Or beside them. Or anywhere near them for that matter! Happy Sunday to you :)

I have a fear of being near trucks on the freeway. I used to have to drive a truck for a job up into the mountains! I still can't believe I did that job.

At least you didn't let an opportunity pass you by ;-)

Nice shadow in B&W

Good for you for making the best of a bad situation. LOL (Of course, it helps to always have your camera.)

magiceye said...

you sure have done well by converting a liability to an asset!
lovely capture indeed!

PJ said...

Um, Dianne, who was driving? (I've been known to shoot out the window while driving, eyes on the road.) The composition and coloring are fabulous. Happy SSS!

Bob-kat said...

I love that you have converted this to B&W. It enhances the shadow :)

Carletta said...

B&W was definitely the right choice for this one. The shadow makes that little cab look like it's a seperate truck and the shadow is taking on a life of its own.
I know I'm not describing that well enough. I like it.

Dianne said...

thanks all for the wonderful comments
seems most of us don't like sharing the road with trucks :)
I WAS driving BUT we were stopped at a light - so it was safe shooting ;)

Lisa B. said...

Me too...with the trucks. Cool shot!

Glennis said...

Not many people would think of photographing the shadow of a truck as it moved along the street. Amazing!
