Shadow Shot Sunday - San Francisco Botanical Garden Shadows - September 5, 2010




Shadow Shot Sunday - San Francisco Botanical Garden Shadows - September 5, 2010

My visit to San Francisco's wonderful Botanical Garden two weeks ago has been a 
wonderful source of photos for several recent posts.  I even got some nice shadow shots
that day.

  19. I've just dropped over from Rosaria's sixtyfivewhatnow.

    You are indeed a SANE RN, who has learned to love and embrace her "shadow side," though might be a bit squirrel-ly. (Love the picture of the little critter; looks like the one who "cleans up" under our bird feeders.

    So happy to see you here. I'm thinking of you and Harry and wish that all goes well.

    I try to keep a watchful eye these days for shadows. Funny, how observant you become once you've started blogging!

    I'm happy you enjoyed my shadow shots!

    I don't always participate in Shadow Shots but, when I've seen some nice shadows, I definitely post them. Sometimes you see some really fabulous ones!

    I only have one book published. My poetry book, "Life's Journeys, Volume 1" - as long as that one took me, I'll be 120 before a second one comes out!!


    Marjorie (Molly) -
    San Francisco's Botanical Gardens is definately a sanctuary for squirrel photos. They are always there in swarms looking for handouts!


    Silvia K -
    I didn't even notice how wonderful the squirrel's tail was for shadow shots till I was going through the pictures again! Amazing.

    Well, the squirrel seems to be the big winner in terms of popularity in my shadow shots!

    I didn't know you guys didn't have squirrels. I bet Zebby would give them a good chase if you did. Cats are always chasing them.


    Annie -
    Well, you will definitely enjoy a live Gardens visit though they are nice to see on Facebook as well.

    I'm afraid I'd need a lot more photos to have the album be "The Kingdom of Shadows" - I do have a lot more shadow shots scattered here and there that I think I should put all in the same place.

    It's funny, all those squirrels look exactly alike. There must have been fifty out and about that way but none of them seem to have any individual charateristics. I guess their sweethearts must be able to tell the difference!

    Well, the holiday weekend has almost come to an end. I stayed pretty close to home. Went to a wedding and to hear some jazz yesterday but, otherwise, it was quiet for me.


    Catherine -
    When I took the photograph of the squirrel, I didn't even notice the shadows the tail created. It was only when I went back through the photographs, I noticed it.

    Glad you like my shadow shot offerings this week. It's been awhile since I've done them.


    Shiju Sugunan -
    I'm most delighted that you liked my shadows. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with everything on these blogs.

    Actually, Poetic Shutterbug and I provided the lunch. She brought frosted flakes.

    It's so nice to have you visit. Rosaria is wonderful, isn't she? I suppose it's a good thing to have the squirrels clean up under your bird feeder as long as they're not helping themselves to everything in it.
