The weather today is wet, dull and generally miserable. There is not the slightest sign of any sunshine. One of the photos needed for Eileen's Winter Photography Scavenger Hunt is Alternative B. A Shadow. There would be very little chance of taking such a photo today but I have a few possibilities I have been collecting. 
These two were taken in the early sunshine at Doubtless Bay in the Far North of New Zealand.

Then two in the garden on a more sunny day than today.

Now I need to choose which one!


  1. That top shadow look very Mary Poppins-esque

  2. Snap! I agree with Sian .. I thought Mary Poppins as soon as I saw it.

  3. I like the first one - is it an umbrella or your shoes? Also like the iris photo.

  4. I vote for the second one - so atmospheric.

  5. I love taking shadow pictures. I have quite a collection from when the children were younger. My daughter is tiny and we enjoyed making ourselves look very tall. The first one does indeed look like Mary Poppins with her umbrella!
