Shadow Shot Sunday and Collage Sneak Peek


Here's my shadow shot for this week. 
 This is my favorite time of day... beautiful warm light and long shadows.
This was taken on Colorado St. in Pasadena.

To join in the Shadow Shot Sunday fun, go here.


Today I "accidentally" made a collage that I am loving.  I went into my studio to work on a specific piece and went to tear a page out of the fantastic french book, which I won (see post below), to use in that piece.  Next thing I knew this collage was forming itself.  Love that! (sorry other unfinished piece, I'll get to you another day).  It's not quite done... just needs a few loving finishing touches.  But I decided to give you a lil' sneak peek of part of it...cause it's fun!

I love the shadow shot. Long shadows cast upon the sidewalk on a very famous street no less. Isn't Colorado Boulevard old route 66? Very cool.
Can't wait to see the finished collage. Looks interesting.

Peace.

What a happy shadow shot Esther. I am craving the sunshine so much lately with all the snow and clouds covering Calgary! So you shot warms my heart, thank you.

Hugs and blessings for your week.

Hi E! Love the new collage already!!! I want you to know that your shadow shots have made me notice the shadows around here so much more - when we have sun! It is always so gloomy here that I tend to not look for things that aren't obvious. Well, the last few days we had some sun breaks and all of a sudden I was seeing great shadow shots everywhere! But alas, my camera was not with me. Thanks for opening my eyes up to such a simple beauty. Jessi xox

I really like your collages, using all the different items makes them so interesting. The feather addition is wonderful. Very inspiring.
