Shadow Shot #9

Although I'm looking forward to Springtime, I am enjoying the lovely winter sun that streams in every morning. This is a strange shot, I think; I took it of the glare of the sun on the floorboards under our table this morning. The long shadow lines are created by the backs of the chairs.


Yesterday we had out monthly BrisStyle meet-up in Hamilton, across the road from where we are holding our Christmas market in the old Hamilton Town Hall.

It was nice to welcome some new faces to our group. As usual there were lots of handmade Brisbane goodies on show, lovely conversation and (huge plates!) of delicious food! Here are the BrisStylettes in action (before the food arrived!).


Visit the lovely HeyHarriet for some more shadow shots.
Happy Sunday everyone!

Amazing what shapes shadows can be! Chairs with spaced bars in the back create some awesome shadow patterns as your wonderful pic testifies! And love the added burst of light at the top!

Hi Ali! Well you certainly did a far better job than I did when I crawled up under my table to try to get a shadow shot! lol This is a really good shot of a chair shadow! And I agree with Greyscale, I love the added burst of light at the top as well! :D

And it's always nice to welcome new faces in a group. Looks like the BrisStylettes have a good time with all the delicious food and lovely conversation, can I join? ;)

I love your SS this week Ali! BEAUTIFUL!!! The winter sun sure is nice. It's the only time of the year almost that we can enjoy being in the sun without passing out from heat stroke :)

The BrisStyle meet-up looks fun, glad you all had a wonderful day!

Such a wonderful site, the sun early in the morning, just puts a smile on your face and a brisk step in your walk to find the camera...QUICK...before it disappears.

Great shadow shot - and I'm totally hearing you on the lovely winter morning sun (I often fight the dog for it when it streams in through our lounge room window). Yes it was a great day out at Hamilton - I SO enjoy our meet-ups :)

Wow! I can't believe you got the reflection of the sun in your flooring. That baby must really shine! Very nice!
