Shadow Shot Sunday ~ pix from a fun jaunt with a friend

Today I'm using more shadowy photos from a foliage trip I took in early October with my friend and chauffeur, Linda, through Connecticut, Massachusetts and into southern Vermont.
It wasn't easy finding autumn colors, but we did find some interesting places to photograph along the way!
This is an Episcopal church "somewhere" in western Massachusetts. I'm not sure what town we were in at the time.
We both liked the shadows created by the noonday sun.


 See lots more shadow shots from around the world at our awesome Aussie friend Tracy's Hey Harriet blog!

You and Linda had such a fine trip. I do miss the abundance of colors that the northeastern autumn brings. Beautiful ShadowShots. Happy SSS to you and your Ralph!

The shadows are all the more mysterious for not knowing exactly where they are...just "somewhere"!



SHADOW, SHADOW

Shadow, shadow, if I could,
I would meet you in the wood,
Where the frenzied fairies play
In the blazing light of day.

But, dear shadow, I dare not
Go to that secluded spot,
For I fear the woodland path
And what’s more, the fairies’ wrath!

What a lovely church! Nope, not the best year for foliage, but that will make next autumn that much more special!

Love these shadow shots of such a lovely church. Episcopal churches are known for their cuteness, I think.:))

Hope you are feeling well, Patti..hope the new meds you are taking are going to do the trick.:)

I think churches always make great photos!
I really like the close-up of the bell tower.

Linda said...

Ya know, I don't quite remember what town this was in either but I do remember the church and the deuce of the time we had even finding the sign for it!

Beautiful church & colors on the way! Most of our leaves flew off the trees this week with the crazy windy days we had - so we are truly enjoying your trip :) Have a great weekend Patti!

There's something about church architecture that always appeals to me. These are lovely shots.

Churches can cast shadows in many different ways.

Sorry to be so late checking in-busy weekend again!
OMG-you have a 'chauffeur'?? How fortunate! That church is fascinating. I keep thinking of all the services, weddings, baptisms, funerals,, etc. that have been held there over the years.
