Shadow Shot: Trellises and Walkways

I’m starting to participate in Shadow Shot Sunday, a photography challenge over at Hey Harriet. I might call mine Shadow Show Saturday because I’m in Seattle on PST and I’m 15 hours behind Australia! If I wait until Sunday, It’ll be Monday everywhere else in the world.

This is an art-related post (I am, after all Jean of all Trades). You’ll see some fashion shots here, but most won’t be. All the pictures I post for this challenge will show the interplay between light and shadow (that definitely fits my style blog theme). I really enjoy shooting shadows, and have a few in my bag already. Let me know what you think. Here’s the first set:

gilman village



I shot these over the past couple of years. The first is most recent. It’s the trellis at Gilman Village, a quaint, olde timey shopping area in Issaquah, Washington. The second is the bridge that joins two department stores and saves shoppers from having to brave te elements. It’s in Portland, Oregon. Finally, the Seattle Arboretum. It’s another trellis, and the shadows it created captivated me.

    You have this “thing” for shady places, don’t you? 🙂


    Imagine a shadow could talk
    In whisper or rumble or squawk;
    Just what would it say
    To make you go, “Hey!
    You’re just a chip off the old block!”?
