Shadow Shot of Hand

Took this last week in my backyard. The plan was to photograph the strawberry leaves, as some are now bright red, but I ended up playing hand shadows against the fence. Visit Hey Harriet for more Shadow Shots.

Ralph says

Ah, the imaginary shows and attractions we can create with the sun at our back. Perhaps we are looking at a dragon preparing a roast. Maybe it is a quacking duck. Our imagination works overtime, but it is not really work - only fun!

"dragon preparing a roast"..."quacking duck"...
these are great, Ralph!

Martha Z says

The Aflac duck! Just like when we were kids.

Sylvia Kirkwood says

What a fun shot! Always fun to play with shadows and all the more since Shadow Shot came along! Great way to use our imagination! Ralph has some great ones!!

Enjoy, Leora!

LOL..I like this one..I have one that I haven't posted yet of me trying to make a peace sign. It didn't quite work...

Leora says

That makes me smile, Michelle, the thought of you trying to make a peace sign shadow! In a fun sort of way.

MedaM says

Interesting shadow and beautiful photo. I also like the wooden fence.

Leora says

I am also quite fond of that fence. I did an oil painting of it, but I never finished that painting.

I'll have to include it more often in my backyard photos. Thanks for the mention of it.
