SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY 2



SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY 2






The Dragonfly below was the subject before I joined the Original Shadow Shot Sunday. Then I posted it after I joined for the Shadow in the second shot....


Now look at the second shot of this magical shadow log- "Embiggen it" if you can
and look in the shadow for the hidden Frog!





Original shot ........  Can you see the mystery guest beginning to appear in the shadows?


Now he is more visible, and I never saw him until I downloaded the pic!! SURPRISE!


Can you find the Chameleon--or is it merely a shadowy figure?


Proof he exists.....


Glassy Pond Shadow--this guy is a Camera hog!


How old am I said the Real leaf? Let me count the rings! Ahh- but how old am I in shadow years?


Sorry I could not post just one, but these are re-posts of some I did for the original Shadow Shot Sunday. I let it steep for two days due to the Saturday post Down Under. Hope you enjoy!


HAVE A BLESSED WEEK.


LOVE YOU ALL!

  1. How old are you in shadow years? How about way back when there was no light and only darkness covered the face of the earth? :)

  5. An interesting collection of shots. Just a slight shift of position and the chameleon comes clearly into view. In the first shot I would have missed those little feet if you hadn't clued us in.

  8. Do you listen to your wife as well as you listen to me? :)

  9. The reptile waits in the shadows for dinner - however the dragonfly just knows the frog and himself will not dins together - the four-winged insect would be in the stratosphere in a second, so don't even try...

    The reptile in the trees is visible in B&W, although in color, the form would be less of itself more blended. It is nice to capture the least of beings and give them their due...nice!

  11. Wonderful shadow collection! Adore the secret frog! And love the idea of calculating shadow years! Very clever!

  12. This post was fun to read and puzzle over, John!

    I didn't see the frog, but I did see the chameleon.

    The dragonfly is either a camera hog or a camera bug. ;-)

    Have a fun week shadow seeking!!

  13. You do find the greatest shadow shots, John!! I love the frog and Chameleon -- I would have missed him, too if you hadn't given us a clue!! Hope you have a wonderful, fun weekend! Enjoy!

  14. John you crazy guy : )
    I actually saw mr. Frog before I "embiggened" him (that is too funny a word and I have a silly big grin on my face even when I type it !) ..
    You have wonderful shots here .. I so love dragonflies (can you send some up here to help me out in the summer when the nasty bugs start up with me?) haha
    It is fascinating watching them fly and settle on some object .. I have a couple of good shots from past years that I am proud of : )
    Hey posting multiples are perfect for you because I know you must have a hard time not sharing with us ! wink wink !

  15. Wow! What a great surprise! I had to look a few times before I could see him! Nice hiding place to ambush an unsuspecting dragonfly. As you can see, I, too, am not prone to just post one shot. Many of us do multiples. Have a great weekend!

  22. Hey! Everytime you get a yuck for using "embiggen" I should get a royalty!
    Great photos John! That dragonfly is amazing...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Those are really great shots! I did not see the chameleon at first. How was his karma? ;) (OK, you can hit me now.)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I see why you couldn't pick just one shot so glad you shared all of them

    ReplyDelete
  25. 'shadow years' - oh man you rock! :)
    Great series of shots again.
    Have a good week ahead!

  26. These are all great shadow shots! I love the dragonfly in that first one. Dragonflies have a special meaning to me anyway, so I found ,myself gazing at it form quite some time. Good job!


    Peace

  27. What great pictures...that dragonfly's beady little eyes are great in that first one....and how fun that you were really shooting two subjects after-the-fact!
    Love the shadows of the leaves on the tree trunk...counting shadow rings ~ brilliant!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. What more can I say but as always great shots. I think we can safely say those tree rings say ancient.

  29. It can be fun finding unexpected things in our photos (although some things are better deleted!) A super collection of shadow shots - I particularly like the chameleon.
