Paris Shadows

There I was, all set to capture some great shadows when the inevitable Brisbane thunder and lightning show rolled into town, right on cue.  When all else fails, you can always rely on Paris.


Akhenaten humming Me and My Shadow in the Louvre


Reflected shadows in a boutique window. 
Oh, to have the youth and figure to get away with this little number, but you can keep the bear head.


Possibly the first man in history to be shadowed by a miniature poodle.

To see some really stunning shadows, visit Hey Harriet's blog - you won't be disappointed.

What a nice trio of shadows and reflections! The bust is impressive, the shadow regal. As for the model, I am left to wonder what catches my eye first: the colorful dress or the gray yet stylish Parisian architecture in the reflection. Finally, the small Poodle leaves an impressive shadow in relation to its size. And to the right of the frame is a Standard Poodle. All amazing sights from the City of Light!

Love all of your shadow shots for the day! Think my favorite is the last one!

Have a great weekend!

Ahhh...the French poodle, wish they were popular again, they are such intelligent creatures...and yes the snow was crunching under my clogs...and filling my clogs, but when I spied the shot, I quick ran into the house for the camera and snapped away...brrrr...what we do for our shadow shots!

Have a wonderful Christmas my Aussie friend!!! Stay dry!

The dress in the window is fantastic! What an interesting shadow the first gentleman casts -- so not like what one would expect. Aw, little dog!

Hey Harriet said...

Er...well I can't rely on my Paris shadows. As I've never been there. Grumble grumble. I WISH I had a stash of Paris shots to fall back on for our rainy days! Speaking of the rain, isn't it just so lovely! I hope it lasts all week! I want a rainy Christmas! ...I'm rambling. I love your photos! And thanks for your kind words on my blog & many thanks to you for joining in on this shadowy thing & bringing so much fun to it! I hope you and your family have a beautiful Christmas Robyn!

I like the shop window reflections whereas the dogs is a classical composition.

Your shadows are wonderful, Hot Fdge! How lucky you are in warm Brisbane! We just had a foot of snow! Ugh! :)

Really fine and All that is fascinating because I haven’t actually had the chance to shadow any doctors, but my favorite part of the trip, was definitely the General Practitioner’s office I visited.
