Shadows here and there

Shadows here and there

For this post I am sharing a few images with shadows, I know there is a shadow Hunters challenge but I don't know what the theme is for this week if it is still running, but every now again a shadow catches my eye and I snap a shot.

and this first image sis such a case, I was taking a walk around a cemetery I had not visited till this day St Johns here in New Bedford, it is a beautifully maintained cemetery, and I will share a post walking around it some day, but focusing on shadows for this post.
As I said I was walking around the cemetery, I was at the edge of the cemetery near the road as I was taking a shot looking forward, I looked down and saw this shadow and almost jumped a little I thought someone was behind me about to grab me.

Was my imagination running wild, you will have to wait till the end of the post to find out

I looked through my folders and found this shot I had already edited and found this one, the shadows of the tree giving an interesting feel to this sign

Now I forget at the moment which Church these steps and door are on, the door caught my eye, but I had never shared this image and seeing the shadow of the hand rails and of the power lines creating shadows across the door I thought I could slip it into this post

Back in St Johns Cemetery I walked through there a little before 7 Am, the sun had risen before 6AM so the light was out but the sun still low it gave long shadows which can add a moody kind of feel to the cemetery

St Johns Cemetery had some interesting headstones, including this one and the shadow it made

Now to finish off where I started, what was that shadow with me in the first photo.

Here is the statue that made the Shadow :)

O my… @tattoodjay I can imagine the reaction when looking down and see that figure with the hands up right behind you 🤣😂 hahaha

Well captured though.
The shadow hunters don’t have a theme and all shadows can be entered by posting in the community. 🤓
Join in again, it’s fun. Just posted mine today.

Beautiful photography. Have a wonderful Saturday 👋🏻😁

I did get a surprise when I saw the statue and quickly turned around and laughed at my reaction when I saw the statue LOL

Oh, those are fantastic and interesting shadows. And I thought there were two people on the first shadow, it turned out the other one was a statue❤

Thanks been a while since i did a shadow shot,

I to thought that shadow was another person , turned quickly almost worried only to find it was a statue LOL

Have a great day

Nice to have them once in a while. Happy weekend.

The shadows kinda got me. Brilliant.

Thanks, I haven't done a shadows post for ages so was time for one ;)

Have a great day

Very nice post, thanks for sharing! I loved all the shadows!

Thanks Its bene a while since I did a shadows post

Have a great day

Very interesting post and the description of the pictures are great, very complete! I don't know if it was your imagination or you were just inspired enough to catch all those fabulous shapes in the shadows!

I really enjoyed this post!

Great post. Lots of really nice shadows. Looks like you've been saved. Jesus grabbed you 🤣 I like the shadow of the cross from the tombstone and the church door. Fun when shadows are so crisp and placed perfectly - they look like a part of the architecture

LOL yes I must admit i was a little shocked when I saw the shadow and quickly turned and laughed at my reaction when I saw the statue

thanks I must watch out for more shadows :)

When the sun is bright they can show very beautiful shadows like the ones you cast in various places which can make for some really great pictures.

Yes indeed, i find early morning just after sunrise is often good for nice long cool shadows

Have a great day
