Shadow Shot Sunday #33


After a week of wintery 'flu and sick children, we had a nice day today; it was sunny, we were at the beach and are all now on the mend.

This shadow was taken after our sweet little neighbour dropped in some leftover balloons from his aunty's party. The two smallest members of our household have discovered that helium-filled balloons are very cool - and not just because of the pretty shadows they make!


For more lovely shadow shooters, head on over to the award-winning Hey Harriet! ;)

Happy Sunday everyone!

Good to hear you are all feeling better! Flu can make you feel quite sad! And sometimes just rays of sunlight can brighten the day!

This could almost be a photo from a birthday party! Lovely happy photo!

Hey Harriet said...

Haha! Smart arse ;D

Very cute shadows! So the kiddies have discovered the joys of helium already? Oh boy! Look out!

Sorry a nasty flu had taken over your house during the week. A trip to the beach is a perfect remedy. Good thinking Ali

That's cute!

Hope everybody's in the best of health now. That's sad when kids don't feel good.

Have a happy week-end and week ahead.

Gorgeous capture, love the green balloon in the foreground to clue us that the photo includes both a green one and a red hued one.

This is a really lovely shot Ali, but I'm a bit concerned about your kids being hooked on helium!
