Shadow Shot Sunday # 75


Where did the week go? Here we are again with Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday. The first image I have chosen is of a poor lost soul sitting in the fading afternoon sun in St Stephen's Green, Dublin. My heart went out to him and I wondered what hardships he had to face in his life.



The second image is of another lost soul - Mr Fudge consulting a map in Edinburgh - a scene that was to be repeated on more than one occasion over the coming weeks.


There was a gathering today of some of the BrisStyle girls, all very upbeat at the prospect of our coming Christmas market on 5 December.


Star of the day was the super charming Helen of Ruby 2 Go Go who in her other life is an air stewardess. She had been up since 2.30 this morning and had flown from Brisbane to Melbourne and back again - and she managed to arrive at the gathering before me. Well, I had to travel across town!


The other star of the day was young Xavier, the handsome son of committee member, Bel, one half of the of the EmBelISH team. He was keeping a firm eye on Mum while Katie of Kitty Boo Boo did a wonderful job keeping him amused.

There were lots items on show, but I can't reveal them here ... sorry. You will have to come along to our Christmas market to see what all the excitement is about.

But I can show you what I have been working on this week - I really don't want to see another skirt for a while, so next week it's dresses.

Nice shadows, like the one of Mr. Fudge checking directions.

Great shadow shots. I like the one of Mr. Fudge checking directions, too.

Enjoy!

Great shadows of the souls but am just glad it didn't show much how lost they were. Great skirts too. Goodluck on your Christmas show.

I love the photo of Mr Fudge's shadow in Edinburgh, very nicely composed....

That first shadow definitely looks like it belongs to a lost soul! The water droplets hanging on the bench add to that feeling! Beautiful photo!

Your skirts are so creative! Stunning!

Wonderful shadows of people down on their luck. The sun leaves shadows of life. Maybe with problems, but the shadows are of living and breathing people. Another day of living is always precious...

bobbie said...

your first two photos are touching. Excellent shots.

Pam said...

Your shadows are wonderful and I like your sense of humor :)

Aside from the sad lost soul issue, I liked the one of the map reader in Edinborough - lots of shades culminating in the dominant figure in the foreground.

...and i loved those skirts you made!

Paula Scott said...

Yes, your two shadow shots are great contrasts! Both have quite a bit of storytelling behind them!

Sam said...

Love your shadow shots! ...and I loved the photos of yo Brissy gals getting together! How cool!

Those are great shadow shots. There are so many lost souls and I like to think that at least a few of them are lost because they've chosen to be. I can't imagine living that kind of lifestyle myself but perhaps some people choose to live on the streets as a form of freedom and escape. If that applies I'm sure it would be for a minority though. It's all very sad, but I'm hoping it's not always a case of it being a sad situation. Sorry. I'm waffling and probably not making sense.

That looks like a fun get-together! I'm sorry I missed it! And those skirts are adorable Robyn!

Mr. Fudge, how cute. Did you ask the poor lost soul what he'd been through? The skirts are so beautiful and the fabrics, ohhh just to die for. Papers and fabrics make me drool - and these are exquisite. Are those fabrics sold on line anywhere? Oh sorry, back to the shadow shots - you did a wonderful job. Thanks. Peace. B : )

nice shadows...when i see someone, like your guy in the first photo...i often say a few words for them...incase they are troubled...and i hope it helps.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Looks like a table full of talent there! We love coming over and seeing all of your work - you've almost got me talked into having another baby...girl of course, so I could dress her in nothing but your clothing!

I remember strolling through St Stephen's Green as such a joyous occasion. I feel sorry for the poor man too. Maybe that's what too much guinness does to you. He made a great shadow shot though, if only he knew, it might have changed his life.

Yes you have to watch men and maps. Very dangerous!!! Not only do they refuse to turn the map upside down and you end up walking hours in the opposite direction, they also throw it away! So you end up lost in a foreign country hoping your useless baguette wrappers magically turn into the map that was mistakenly tossed into the bin instead!

I'll take some of those gorgeous skirts off your hands. Miss Am would love that!

Paula said...

God bless ALL poor lost souls - and their shadows.

It looks like you had a terrific time at your meet-up. I love the skirts.

Nicole said...

great shadow shots Robyn and I love your skirts :)
