Shadow Shot Sunday

I took these photos of two Protestant churches that grace the Derby, Ct. Green at the same time I took the third shadow shot in last week's post, during a free concert we attended. It was a beautiful evening. The photo above is of Immanuel-St. James Church.

Alert readers will get the idea that I have posted photos of both of these churches before. Can you tell I rarely go anywhere? Haha.

But I do love local history and old buildings. As a matter of fact, in case you were wondering how the historic Sterling Opera House fits into this scenario, it is just a few feet away from the Second Congregational Church seen below!
And alert readers will remember I love that old (and haunted) Sterling Opera House.

I'll make an attempt to find some shadows from another location for next week's meme. ;-)
Until then, happy shadow seeking.
See lots of interesting shadows by visiting our awesome Aussie friend Tracy, at Hey Harriet.

The Derby green is always a treat, especially at the end of the daylight and the cool shadows that result. You have captured these well, M'lady!

Lovely captures and wonderful shadow shots for the day, Patti! Hope your weekend is off to a good start! Enjoy!

I do remember the church because it is so lovely-like a gingerbread house. However, I do not tire of seeing it, so multiple posts of the same image is fine with me!!

In a way, the stone church is crowned with glory--well, at least some sunshine!


Imagine a shadow could talk
In whisper or rumble or squawk;
Just what would it say
To make you go, “Hey!
You’re just a chip off the old block!”?

Great shadow shots of such beautiful old buildings.

Old buildings always fascinate me and fire my imagination! I don't get out much eiher, so when I do the camera works overtime! Great photos!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Very good cadres with beautiful old architecture and all that shadows.

Regards and I wish you all the best Patti

Hey Harriet said...

These are wonderful Patti! It's nice to see pics taken from your fave places so don't worry about venturing elsewhere if you don't feel like it :D

Awe inspiring photos...I especially like the sunset lighting filtering through the greenery in the last photo.

My shadow this week is of a horn cleat [what you use to tie up a boat at the dock]


Hope your weekend has treated you well.
