SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY 2


SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY 2



Your hosts are:
Magical Mystical Teacher
Rose (chubskulit)
Gemma Wiseman


I HAD TO GO BACK TO PUDDLE JUMPING! IT'S APPROPRIATE SINCE IT RAINED AND WAS TOTALLY CLOUDY A COUPLE OF DAYS!

THE ROAD- HOME OF THE PUDDLES




A PUDDLE JUMPER
MAY BE A CAR OR A TRUCK
MOST LIKELY A FROG



















YOU CAN'T EVEN STOMP THEM OUT!!!
THEY SEEM PRETTY TO A DEGREE, BUT THEY ARE NASTY ON YOUR CAR, AND YOUR BRAKES. HOWEVER THIS IS THE ONLY WAY IN AND THE LANDOWNER WON'T FIX!
SO WE DEAL WITH IT!


LOVE YOU ALL!

  7. What a terrific series of shadow shots for the day, John! I love them!! The next to last one is awesome and, of course, I love stomping them, too!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. The utility seems to be a tree, a stranger who hangs with the trees even without foliage...the puddle has a perfect perspective, it looks almost as big as a pond until the foot (ready to make a real splash) lets us know it is not too big and may be able to be traversed by a frog or a human too...

  9. Fantastic shadow shots and you have framed them nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  10. So I'm guessing you are not the landowner? They do make some interesting photos though. Hey, your top Shadow Shot is in the same vein as Kelly's this week. Great minds...

    Happy SSS.

  13. So enjoyed your shadowy puddle jumping shots! Even obstacles can be fun if you let them! It's all in the angle of the camera - real or otherwise! But hey! Stomping out puddles??? Sounds like a bit of melodrama happening there! But love it all!

    ^5 Bro- (I stole this from Jeannie- but I like it!)

    Joan--You are so appreciated. The other day the right rear brake actually froze the tire and I had to rock the car to POP it loose!

    Have a great weekend,

    J



    Sylvia, Remember as Kids we used to search them out for fun....and proportionate to age and the clothes we have on we avoid them at all costs!

    Thanks as always for just being YOU!

    Have a great weekend,

    John

    Thanks as always for your input!

    Hugs,

    J


    Catherine-- Thanks so much--The little frogs LOVE it, and it does make for a nice stroll!

    Regards,

  24. Great pictures!

    Yeah, I live in the Columbia area. We will need to meet and have a couple of beers one day.

    Things are just now calming down at my house over the car issue.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'll stop complaining about the state of our road - at least we only have to negotiate a few potholes!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Big reflective puddles - you wouldn't spoil them by driving through them surely!

    Round here the council often used to claim that potholes were "traffic-calming measures".

    ReplyDelete
  27. great shots! i love the water reflections :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful pictures. Soft and delightful shadows. I love the first picture contrast. I am invite you to subscribe to my "Life in Pictures" meme. Have a nice week. Greetings from Romania.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes, delicious and warm shadows. I like those reflections in the puddles. Greetings.

    ReplyDelete
  30. maybe troublesome to drive, but, man you got some great shots. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Absolutely phenomenal display of puddles. It was a pleasure having you visit today.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hey....hold on there! We're going to grab our muck boots & join ya! Happy SSS!

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOVE these. The fifth one, with the path winding into the woods, is magical. And I had to laugh out loud at the sixth, a puddle-stomping shadow. Great set.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great shots though I don't think I'd like to jump into any of these puddles as they look too deep, I can imagine me disappearing up to my neck ...... well, I'm not very tall

    ReplyDelete
  35. BB-Sounds like a winner. We are in the middle of packing to move, so after that I could use a brew or 40!

    Have a great week my friend,

  37. Frabjous shadows John. Happy to have found your blog through SSS.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I do love the reflections! :)
    I looked at that last one and thought how wonderfully funny you are but I saw the blue and (hate to admit this) wondered why someone was sitting by the puddle with a blanket on their hand. I was completely lost there for a minute. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sallie--Thanks so much! It is a great way to meet new people!!

    Regards,

    John



    Carletta- I guess it would be a confusing pic just to see at first! Thanks as always for you kind comments and New Friendship!
