Simply Irrisistable (again)!

Shhh.....I've been sneaking around with my cellphone camera again. I won't say what museum I took this in, but who could resist such a shadow?

Not to mention the incredible squash blossom necklace that cast the shadow.

A shadow with an edge...a sharp edge, that is!

This one was taken legally! It was an art exhibit where the participants conveyed what they did in the morning (that was the name of the show: "What I do in the morning"). This was a giant disposable razor. The orange 'spine' that you see on the handle are a whole bunch of disposable razors. Too clever, huh?

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.

If you want great shots that you don't even have to sneak, try the Seattle Art Museum. I love that place!


If you see a shadow
And want to keep it near,
Point your trusty shooter
(Make sure the lens is clear);
Press with care the shutter,
Do not slam or sock it—
Then you’ll have a photo
To carry in your pocket!

The necklace seems more stylish in shadow - why I cannot say. Not that I am tired of gold and silver, but shadow seems like a metal of graphite color. Understated and elegant...

We don't appreciate the artistic qualities of the usual and mundane that is all around our homes. Disposable razors have a functional style and bold orange hue. Thus, art occurs as long as we open our minds to any possibility...

Oh, you're so quick and clever, Paula! And what terrific shadow shots for the day! I really love the necklace! Hope you have a lovely weekend with lots of wonderful sunshine!

I very much like that first shadow!

Squash blossom shadows are lovely, Paula, and the shadow cast by that giant razor is a giggle.

They do get tetchy about cameras don't they. Glad you weren't sprung, it's lovely! I can just hear you explaining to the guard: "I was only taking a photo of the shadow, honestly"
Where will the next illicit photo be from?

Oooo, love to see the rest of that necklace...can you do a little better the next time your sneaking photos at the pressure!

Have a sunny one...and send some to Iowa...k...!

This is a copy of my reply to your comment on my blog about Playa del Sol, and San Felipe!
Paula - That's wonderful. You're right about the fish tacos. My young sister-in-law still talks sometimes about going down just to get fish tacos!
I won't tell you what the residentes (the resident foreigners) thought about American college kids, LOL. Although my parents loved meeting everybody.

We need more museums where we can take pictures legally.
Great shadows. Have a good week ahead!

Great shadow shot....if you're anything like me, when the cellphone is in use, you tend to keep an eye on the security cameras and security guards...and 'snap' away.

Love the art commissioner post above this too.
