Sunshine


Hey Harriet's Shadow Shots...every weekend from Australia
~~~~~
Walking with Trux in the morning frost...
layers of clothes and the Elmer Fudd hat.

Afternoon walk, still bundled, but slightly warmer...
straw sun hat to protect my face from the high desert sun.

Yeah, Scratchy has to wear one of those ikky things when she goes for a walk too...otherwise she would terrorize the neighborhood...no cats left alive!!!

Have a great weekend Charmaine...and Trux!(who's walking who)(scratchy asked)

sharon and scratch

Ohhhh, I like your Shadow Shot! And the quote is so TRUE! Used to be, I would hardly go for a walk if it weren't for Pooch's needs.

Have a lovely weekend.

Cecile/DreamCreateRepeat said...

Nice shadows shots! I'm off to an outdoor art show on a nice sunny day to hunt for shadows. ; )

Great silhouettes...wish JoJo, Minky, and I were there to join you on your frosty walk. :)

Great SSS photos - the secoond one is very dramatic just love it.

You look sooooo tall and Trux looks like he must be huge, menacing lol! Great shots, love the hat :)

SUSAN SONNEN said...

these are great!

Hot Fudge said...

That pooch is just having the best time taking you for a walk. And how true is your quote. I know we don't walk nearly as much as we used to when we had our golden retriever.

Shannon said...

Too. Much. Fun. My favorite kind of shadow - people! The profiles here are quite stunning!

Jeanne said...

Love the pix -- and your new persona!

Cynthia said...

Remarkable shots, Charmaine. I'm enraptured with #1...I love the texture, contrast and feel of these shots. <3

Greyscale Territory said...

Strange imagining desert and cold in one moment. But your beautifully shaped shadows certainly suggest cold!

Sylvia K said...

Great shadows! Looks like a fun walk! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lady Diva!

He he... as you know, I like analysing shadows. And your shadows today,gives me really a *LOL

My hubby woke up, it's 01.18 in the morning here in Sweden and can't stop giving comments to all the ladies in Tracey's meme.

Back to analysing, you look so funny, I can't tell you what's in my mind but I got a cramp laughing. I thought it's somebody (person) infront of you w/ fishing rod on his shoulder? HA HA... it's your cutie Scratchy? waaahhh... am just so stupid!

CHeers for a great Sunday!

Hey Harriet said...

Love that second one! Fab shadows and the background colours are so lovely! That quote at the end is so very true :)

Alissa Nicolau said...

I love morning frost. Something is very romantic about it to me. Too much reading of Wuthering Heights possibly?? Trux is an awesome name by the way.

The Summer Kitchen Interiors said...

Great shadows this week & love the quote - so true, so true!!
Have a great weekend!

Lisa B. said...

Oh...I like them both! In the second one you both look like your walking in front of a painting or some kind of backdrop...neat effect. Funny quote.

SweetPeaSurry said...

How fantastical! (I don't think that's a word, but I'm using it now)

Bonbon Oiseau said...

ooo-love that first shot--you cut a nice shadow lady!

Linda McGeary said...

I love the two shadow pictures.
In my wonders around, your the first blogger I've seen from central Oregon. I'm in Bend.
Nice to meet your work.
I'll be back.
