Hip, Hip, Hooray! SSS'rs to Infinity and Beyond!!!!

Here's yet another presentation of 'similar but different':

Wagon Wheel

A wagon wheel over at Hubbell Trading Post in AZ. If you live within a couple hundred miles of Gallup, NM, you're not too far from this-it is in Ganado, AZ. I highly recommend making the effort. It is quite like doing time travel and going back to the days of the old west. It was a very active and important trading post back then. It is also a very important historic site (link through provided for the insatiably curious).

Stove Top

I think you can easily pick up on what is similar and what is different! And, no stuffing was involved in the making of this stove top picture...sorry!  ; )

And thank to to those who stepped up to continue this beloved meme founded by Tracy down in Brisbane. After last week's announcement of not being able to continue on with it (and we are all grateful for the years and countless hours that you put in, Tracy, that we may indulge in our addiction) I was feeling a bit 'blue' that I would not be able to post and visit my SSS friends. So, I, along with everyone else, am quite delighted and pleased to be able to carry on. I say a toast to all of you who pitched in!

hip, hip, hooray!!!

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 2010 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.

Terrific shadow shots for the day, Paula!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!

I don't know how traveling in a wagon with wheels of wood and unpaved trails makes those 'the good old days'...the gas range offers shadows when not in use. The mundane and ordinary seem very lively in shadow!

Love the waggon wheel )many years ago we lived in Waggon Road!!) Like you, I am delighted that SSS is contimuing - I would really have missed visiting all my fellow addicts every weekend!

So rustic, so 'western'....I love it. We lived in Tucson for over a decade, and I miss the area a lot.

Great perspective on the old wagon wheel! And fascinating old stove top!

Yes! We could not let SSS fade away! It had to live on! Tracy created a legend that must not be forgotten!

Joan said...

We were out in Old Sacramento today and saw a couple of these. :)

Hey Harriet said...

What a great pair of photos! They look so good together! And yes, hip hip hooray indeed! It's awesome that we all have somewhere to continue sharing our shadow shots. I love this blogging community! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Who (only you) would have thought to put these two photos together for comparison? And to do it all without stuffing, too? LOL
Good work, Paula.

Hubbell Trading Post is just a hop, skip and a jump away. Guess I'll have to visit the wagon wheel in person!


Many shadow-seekers say,
“Oh, the one that got away!”

Why are you so uptight, folks?
Can’t you take light’s little jokes?

Once addicted, always addicted...right...I have an old wagon wheel that I brought back from Colorado when I used to live there, loved it and the history of our wild, wild West that evoked it. It was so much fun walking in the mountains and dreaming of the olden days...see ya next week, still with my old relic...ha!


Cassie said...

Love the wagon wheel chaining us to this meme and I like your double vision stove top as well, it makes me feel like looking at the moon where I see five of them.

Great detail on that wheel, and I do see the resemblance to the stove top.

Happy holidays!
