PhotoPhun Challenge: Shadows

Lisa called “Shadows” for this week’s PhotoPhun Challenge. Lisa’s contributions are right here.

Screen door hinge with the shadow of a lawn chair across it.

Thumbs up to Lisa for a cool challenge this week!

Not a lot of shadow, but I liked this one.

Caught this downtown. Bonus points if someone knows where…?

Next week’s challenge was announced earlier this week, it’s “Monuments,” and Bryan was kind enough to give us a good definition:

mon·u·ment (mny-mnt)
n.
1. A structure, such as a building or sculpture, erected as a memorial.
2. An inscribed marker placed at a grave; a tombstone.
3. Something venerated for its enduring historic significance or association with a notable past person or thing: the architectural monuments of ancient Rome; traditions that are monuments to an earlier era.
4.
a. An outstanding enduring achievement: a translation that is a monument of scholarship.
b. An exceptional example: “Thousands of them wrote texts, some of them monuments of dullness” (Robert L. Heilbroner).
5. An object, such as a post or stone, fixed in the ground so as to mark a boundary or position.
6. A written document, especially a legal one.

  1. I don’t know if I will have time this week either. I hope after this week I will have more time. If you haven’t heard we are having two nights of music and other fun. Friday night Judge Ewers will be singing with an 18 piece band called Swing City. On Sat. True North will play favorites from the 40s, highlights from Broadway and patriotic favorites. Music Under The Stars is at 7:30-9:30 both nights in front of the fountain.

  2. Actually, the bottom shadow shot was taken from the back of a building on Broadway, just north of 6th St. I think it’s 2 doors down from The 530 Shop.

  3. Hey Bryan, that park of yours is full of subjects that qualify for Sunday’s challenge.

    You know, when I looked at that picture the first time, I didn’t notice that it was in black & white. I thought that was the real color of the building. Good job!

  4. Lisa,

    Yes it does, but I really like to get out and find new things to photograph. I think I have taken photos of almost everything except the picture of the historic piece Loraine wants me to take. The part of the swing bridge at the park.
