Shadow Shot Sunday

I found some heavy metal garden stakes that had magic tricks up their sleeves ?
An icon of butterflies or frogs dangled by a wire, leaving them free to twirl and spin if need be.
The affect in their shadow is that this link is invisible as you can see by its shadow !
Now how cool is that ? .. Other magic tricks, by way of very special pictures, have been taken by "shadow shooters" over at Hey Harriet .. hosted by Tracy who's talents are rather magical for having us all come together and share them : )

What a terrific shadow shot! I love it! I always love the shadows made by wrought iron, garden stuff! Hope you have a great weekend!

The shadows are neat, looking as if they are alive. The shapes are wonderful, the bottom one my favorite as I see a dragonfly - imaginative shadows!

Great froggy shadow.

Hey there!

Love your stakes!
Looks like I saved the palm in my yard from my husband, but will now be pulling out some of the paths that I redid but that never worked out too well, so now we will till and plant them.

Hope your safe and warm, Lady Abigail sends her love, she's trying to figure out what to wear for her big party coming up. Only 56 days left to go, what will she wear?

Hey Harriet said...

That is so cool! So you are a big fan of halloween? I'm guessing that it is celebrated in Canada on a large scale just like it is in America? Sadly we don't really celebrate it over here in a big way. The day can come and pass without many people even realising. I wish it was a big deal over here as it sounds/looks so much fun! Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

I like the shadow shot! Looks like it's just in mid air!
I've been away from shadow shot posts for a few weeks, good to be back and visit.
Nice job on this one.

Peace.
