"Three Coins In A Fountain". No, make that, "A Dancing Shadow On An Exercise Ball".
Drats. That still doesn't roll off the tongue, does it?
Something a wee bit different today for you shadow sleuths. A moving shadow.
We are still enjoying incredibly gorgeous fall weather here-and I must say the light is at it's best this time of year. But I know that soon, all too soon, it will surrender to the cold and bareness of winter. In the meantime, I am relishing every single moment as though I were a theif!
What I especially miss during the winter is the lovely babbling sound of the fountain in our patio. It centers me, soothes me, calls to me. As I stepped out there the other day to fire up the gas grill, the light was at its peak. My green exercise ball had become a brilliant backdrop for a dancing shadow cast by the water in the fountain. Too good to miss, I did the usual dash into the house to retrieve my camera since I've learned too many times to count that light like this does not wait for you to be ready. You must act now! Instead of taking the still shots, I opted to record it on video-the still shot would not have translated it at all. No fancy edting with this one-just the shadow, that's all.
And, for this crowd, that is enough.

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2011 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account.
