Shadow Shot Sunday

Inspired by some of the beautiful blogs I follow, I have decided to improve my photography skills. I have been trying to adopt a different way of seeing things, rather than just mindlessly point and shoot,usually cutting heads off or including overflowing rubbish bins and passers by in my picture. I saw this meme on Sunnymama's blog and liked the idea of shadows. So here is my first offering. These are pictures of our ancient garage. We inherited it when we moved into the house and my husband reckons it dates from the 1930s, just after the house was built. It is constructed from - shock - horror - corrugated asbestos! We have been assured by asbestos experts that it is perfectly safe, so it is still here in it's red oxide glory.










Check out Shadow Shot Sunday for more shadow play.

Corrugated asbestos? I've never seen that before! Corrugated iron is (or was years ago rather) popular here in Australia. Great shots. Love the last one best. Thanks heaps for joining in Shadow Shot Sunday :)

HI!
Great Shadows! We have a corrugated tin roof on our shed, but it hasn't rusted like that one is. Have a great day!

Wonderful shots, the play of light on the wavy roof is great. I suppose as long as you don't eat it your fine, LOL.

Welcome to SSS! It is such fun! And your shadow shots are marvelous! It does become an addiction, I have to add to Sweet Repose's comment. I'm constantly trying to find ways to "construct" shadows for SSS! Enjoy!
