Shadow Shot Sunday - after the shopping

We have to travel about 10 miles to get to our nearest wholefoods shop, but we don't mind because it is in the lovely historical town of Linlithgow. After our shopping we did some touristy things, so come and join us.

First stop is our favourite organic cafe next door to the shop. James always has an apple juice and a giant freshly baked chocolate chip shortcake, while I just have a plain water (haha). I love how someone's shadow is reflected in the back of the perspex chair.


Then we head up to the Palace - birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots.

A rather blurred shot of the Palace entrance, but I liked the shadow here.


Down to the lochside to visit the swans.


And then a good run around under the trees.

Window shop for more shadows at Shadow Shot Sunday.

What incredible shadow shots! Hard to pick a favorite because I love them all! Your little guy is so adorable, love the swans! I'm a history buff, so loved the one of the castle and the last one just takes my breath away! What a lovely place!

Enjoy the weekend!

What a fun town to play tourist in. Love the photo of running through the trees, grass and shadows. Fresh out of the oven choco chip shortbread and a cup of tea would set me well just now!

What a fun day and great shadow shots! The shadow in the chair in the first picture is a great capture and I really love the last picture, so peaceful and pretty.

Hope you've had a good weekend :)

The last photo is wonderful, aside from the little kid in there, the shadow makes the place so cool
