Shadows From Brum

By LynneJoyce  
A very quick, small (for me) upload of only 7 shots for Saturday Shadows before I dash off to do dog duty then go off to the hospital again. These were taken during our weekend away in Birmingham (November 17th-18th) where we went to see The Spanish Riding School at the NIA. It was a magical show but cameras were not allowed. The following day I trailed poor Garrath around the city centre and got loads of shots (prepare to be bored with more) including these ones that feature the shadows.

Thank you for all your messages of goodwill - they are truly appreciated by both myself and the patient who is making progress in spite of setbacks. Sorry I've only had time to view just some of the images by my favourite clickers, but life is hectic at the moment.

Seven wonderfully composed, exposed and observed images Lynne each extremely worthy of their special slot. My particular favourites being numbers one and two. The light on the fallen leaf is really appealing, and extremely well captured, and presented.

Smashing Saturday shadows, Lynne. I do envy you going to see the famous lippizaners of the Spanish Riding School. I was lucky enough to actually visit the school in Vienna, but unfortunately the horses were away in Piber on their summer holiday! Carol

I agree that each shot could equally well fill the V 1 slot, Lynne, but your choice for V 1 was well considered: love the detail, lighting with shadows, tones and textures.
My best wishes to the patient and yourself at this anxious and busy time.

I assume these are the horses that do all that prancing and dancing Lynne,and an impressive sight it is too.Out of order not allowing pics though as I bet the tickets were a bob or two as well.It was not so an impressive sight though with all these Saturdays I spent in the bookies and all the prancing and dancing I did as my 50p each way bet fell at the first fence.I had enough practice at dancing to win that Strictly Dancing show on the telly.
A good set here,with your knocker sticking out front here as my favourite !!

Looks like I'm following in the footsteps of almost everyone else here as it's V1 & V2 for me today too. I shall look forward to viewing the Birmingham images as that's where our son is living and working at the moment in a city I don't know at all. All my best wishes to you and to Garrath.

Fine selection of shadow images, if there has to be one its V1 for me as well.

Wonderful series of images, all beautifully captured and presented.


Re my image today, it is actually apart of a very old steam powered vehicle taken at Beaulieu a while ago

I didn't think these would have too many knockers Lynne, my favourites are the ones with the leaves in as they epitomise the season of autumn

Great set Lynne, but i go for V1/V2, the door knocker is excellent with a good shadow, Peter..
Love No 1 reminds me of Marley's door knocker in Christmas Carol.

V1 was the one that caught my attention and still does it for me. A really good spot and capture.

I love the light going on here, it's accentuating the subject really well.
