Photo Hunt - Shadow

Shadow is the theme of this week's Photo Hunt. so here goes:




1. This is a photo of a chimney on a building near Temple station. Note the complete absence of shadows. A poor effort for this week's photo hunt


2. This is another example of a photo that features no shadows whatosever but is quite contrasty. I'm not doing that well, am I?


3. This building near Cannon Street station features reflections but still no shadows. Try again

4. This ugly blob is me taking a photo of a shadow. At last a shadow.. wasn't worth it eh?

Photographing shadows can be tough work! The buildings look great tho - even if shadowless... Glad you at least found your own shadow! =)

Good effort for the theme. In fact the shadow of yourself is very prominent. Have a nice weekend!

Hahahaha! Great idea for this theme ... :)

jmb said...

Well I loved the photos anyway, especially the chimney.

Barbara H. said...

LOL! Great progression there. I bet all those buildings do cast great shadows when the sun hits them just right.

Drew said...

Well that was a nice try. I liked the progression.

I also wanted to let you know that there is still time to enter my contest for a great photography gadget at Win an XShot from BenSpark.

Nice collection of photos! The three photos without shadows look incredible! And the absence of shadow is still related to the theme!

Shadow or not those are very impressive chimneys x x

Vader's Mom said...

That was a fun journey in search of a shadow :)

A. said...

The chimneys are superb! For that shot alone I would have said it was worth it.

Thanks for visiting yesterday :)

Liz said...

Isn't that just a gorgeous chimney though? The council here has done some revamping of an old street and has fitted them with chimneys like that (sort of). It makes them look so good.

Thanks all!

George Noori on Coast To Coast warned listeners about Shadow People. Camera Toting Shadow People Takes Sinister Evil To A Whole New Level.

jams o donnell said...

You've got my true nature now EWBL,,, MWUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Now I must go off and play Bachs toccata and fugue on a church organ!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I've always liked the word 'fugue.' I want to pronounce it FUG U!

jams o donnell said...

It's a good one eh? Perhaps it should be Bach's Kick arse-a and Fug U!

Heart of Rachel said...

I'm very sorry for my late visit this week. I'm here to visit your photo last week and your current one.

Those are great shots of interesting places . I love the last one that features your shadow. Take care!
