Memorial Day Weekend 2011
Another "too good to pass up" kind of thing. I was over at Rio Rancho's City Hall in the Council Chambers where our city council meets and this shadow presented itself to me so perfectly! Thank goodness for the cell phone once again!
I thought this image to be a perfect tribute to those who served our country so bravely. If I were home right now in Hawaii, I'd be sure to stop by the cemetery at Punchbowl Crater. Not only is my mother interned there, but it is a Memorial for all those who served in the Armed Services for our country.
Me and My Shadow
This is me and my shadow at the Quarai Ruins last Sunday. Although, I don't know why this hole was there. The Quarai is one of three missions/church of the Salinas Pueblo Missions. I think it is my favorite of the three. You can view an image of the interior of the chruch on a previous post.
It was an epic trip made with two other 'cohorts' from our Flickr Albuquerque/Santa Fe group. We had many stops along he way (and many a great shadow shots too). After we visited these ruins, we stopped off in the sweet town of Mountainaire and then headed out past Willard to the salt flats. So, if I don't get sidetracked, I hope to post them in the near future.
To those of you who served in the Armed Forces for our country-a heartfelt thank you. It is an act of self -sacrifice and courage that I'm not sure I posses. I am grateful and in awe at the same time.
One last tidbit: here's a great link that offers ideas on shadow shots! I'm wondering if I am unleashing a 'monster' by sharing this with everyone, but it certainly generates ideas on taking shadow shots!
"Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see." (Martin Luther King)
Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Hey Harriet. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2010 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.
