Quick! Shadow Shot

The husband was chatting away with me when I caught his shadow. As he was talking I quickly turned.....grabbed the camera.....aimed......shot..... OK .....he's totally use to this bizarre behavior on Saturdays ~ thanks to Tracy at Hey Harriet for Shadow Shot Sundays... !!

See what other fun....and perhaps bizarre shadows await you on Hey Harriet!

PJ said...

What a great shadow shot! And what a wonderful husband.

Bobbi said...

Dare i say that shadow is a tad on the creepy side? Not because your hubby is creepy looking but it looks like he's lurking just around the corner. I love it! Hey thanks for the award, you are a sweety!

Sweet Repose said...

People are starting to look at me strange too...more than normal...ha!

Hope ya got some of that warm air today, seeing it thaw was divine!


Pagan Sphinx said...

Very cool shadow shot. Have a good Sunday.

Jill said...

I love your husbands silhouette! Fun shot. I shot silhouettes this week too.

Carletta said...

Terrific shadow shot! Good that you crabbed the camera. I like too that it is a sliver of his profile and not the entire profile.

Gallery Juana said...

so sweet of your husband to not move for the shot! Love your take on a profile shot!

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Gr8 unexpected shot! Yeah, you're right. The whole family is involved of my fun shots chasing shadows.

My neighbours wondered too! §:-)
Specially, when sun shines? I run around to get more shots for the archives. As you know, Europe is still dark and no sun at all.

Job well done.

Hey Harriet said...

Ms. Tee said...

Thank you so much for that! What a nice surprise this Sunday. :) I love that you caught the shadow of your hubby & laughed when you said he's used to bizarre behavior! My hubby & son see me taking photos of stuff for blogging & no longer think it's weird, either. ;) I hope you have a wonderful Super Bowl night and coming week!

I accept your award with thanks, and I will have to come up with a clever post for it. Might take a little time, but I'll git er done!

I love coming to your blog, too, for its warmth, humor, and creativity! And I'm still laughing about your shadow shot... maybe it ought to lead to a post on shillouettes! I've always thought those were neat-o.
