Shadow Shot Sunday #168: Tables, Chairs and Purses

Yesterday, while waiting for our movie to start, we went to the Mexican restaurant next door to the theater, and sat down at the bar to order.  I looked up, and noticed a very cool shadow shot reflecting off of a long mirror hanging over the bar.  If you look closely at these photos, you will notice that the wooden table, chairs and the light fixtures are inside.  The black tables and chairs are outside, with the pretty shadows.  After zooming and cropping, it is very hard to tell that I took the picture by looking at a mirror.

These were taken yesterday too, through the window of a designer store in Downtown Bend, Oregon.  I love the rich colors of these little tiny purses as they were lined up so nicely on the windowsill.

I love those angles. I am always photographing those kind of wrought iron chairs. The shots of the pocketbooks are so fun and colorful.

To sit in the shade at one of those tables on a sweltering day would be a delight!


Sing a song of shadows
Taller than a tree!
Sing a song of shadows
Wider than the sea!
Sing a song of shadows
Dancing in the sun!
Sing a song of shadows—
Day is almost done!
