Shadow Shot Sunday

Thanks to Tracy over at Hey Harriet for hosting us, you can visit her over at Shadow Shot Sunday:

Winter is here, it has been cold, rainy for a good part of the week, and this weekend is no exception. Very hard to capture shadows when the sun is happily playing at somebody else's house. So I took a look through my photo archives and chose a few from my trip to the Auckland Botanical Gardens in March.

This is called "Butterfly", of all the art pieces at the Botanical Gardens this is my favourite.She is just beautiful.
This is how she looks from behind. I love the way her arms are out like wings, and the fingers are superb.
Part of the African garden.

There are lots of winding paths and bridges that take you to the other themed gardens, this is on the way to the Oriental Garden.

Hope that you all have a safe and happy week.
And thanks again to Tracy for hosting.

A beautiful variety of shadows in the botanic gardens! And those sculptures are very creative!

Wow, creative sculpture and I love the pathway and bridge in the last one. Nice shadows!


Love Ms."Butterfly"!
When I saw the first shot I thought she was posing in a bowling stance. :)
I find the bridge shot with its dappled shadows serene and inviting.

Thanks for your visit. :)

Now that's my sort of butterfly. Hope it's not too cold for you over there - we're having a lovely sunny day here in Brisbane, even if it's a little on the cool side.

Paula Scott

I can see why it is your favorite! She is beautiful and I do love her pose!
We lucked out that there was too much rain and clouds that go you to search your archives!

Lindy MacDuff

What a beautiful place to capture shadows! Love the "Butterfly" sculpture, too.

Thanks for your visit and comment on my shadow shot.

Hope you have some sunny days soon.
=) We've had a lot of rain lately, too.


What a lovely place to visit - a joy round every corner.

Hey Harriet

I love that piece! How very lovely she is! A walk across that garden bridge would be very nice. Sorry for your lack of sunshine. It's been quite nice in Brisbane this week. Not too cold, and plenty of sunshine. Could all change in an instant of course! Have a great week ahead :)


Botanical gardens are always nice to visit. That "Butterfly" is a lovely piece of art! Fantastic!

Sweet Repose

This sculpture is wonderful, but Emma has captured my heart, what an adorable lil' butterfly she is, so full of life and sweetness!!!

It's cloudy again in Iowa, maybe some storm chasin' again in my world!!! Have a good one!

Lisa's RetroStyle

Wow...she makes me feel better about my own view "from behind". Really cool sculpture! Love the shadows on the bridge too:)


Oh I do like this butterfly too. The roundness of her form begs to be touched! (I just love to touch scultings...very tactile.) Great Shadow Shot.


Yes, yes I love that butterfly!
Have a good week ahead,
greetings from Casablanca again!



I like the fact that she's not a scrawny super model!
