Hot shadow

106 degrees is really too hot for me to be outside finding shadows. Spotted this one from the kitchen window....did a mad dash outside, point, click....run back inside....whew!

Here ya go: Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday

Seem to fly it, it will pursue.

...and it looks like such a nice place to sit and rest! lol. Sorry you're being held captive by a heat wave. Love the shot!

willow said...

You are too cute! I am imagining your mad dash. I would do exactly the same, BTW.

woolies said...

yeah...the only time to be outside is DAWN, when you live in the high desert. Cool Shot!

I'm just in awe you had enough energy to dash in the heat. Heat makes me lazy. Great job on the shadow shot!

i avoid going outside right now in the california heat. fortunate for me, it really cools down at night.

Karine said...

Wow, it's HOT there! It's only 93 degrees here. Fancy a visit?
Love the shadow photo...

Glad you're staying inside and keeping cool but the run outside was totally worth it, great shot :)

Mrs.French said...

Worth the mad dash my friend...It is miserable here too. I never thought I would be hoping for clouds in Portland.

M.Kate said...

Hello C,wonderful SSS..always love the clean lines! hmm...that's very hot!

BT said...

I would hate hate that sort of heat! I live in Ireland, so it's unlikely we'll ever get it. But I am so sick of the rain.

Love your shadow photos. It's great. I came over from willow manor.

I don't blame you - that is REALLY hot! Maybe next time you could find a shadow of yourself eating an ice cream cone - that would be much cooler :) Thanks for sharing :)

Mooney ♥ said...

Someday I will have a yard and adirondack chairs of my own... heheee...

Shade doesn't seem so inviting at 106 does it? LOL

Paz said...

Wow! Sure is hot in your area. Glad you got this shadow shot, though. Looks great.

Hahah yes 106 degrees pretty much zaps the possibility of any creativity emerging from me other than in the form of expletives. You did good dear! :)
