Shadow Shot Sunday

It has been such a long time since I played along with Shadow Shots on Sundays.
The main reason, of course that it's been a long time since we had much sun up here, and when we did have sun it was accompanied by gale force winds and freezing temperatures, and the thought of taking my thermal gloves off just so that I could take a picture was a little less than appealing.
I know that I am a big jessie at heart...( that's a big wimp, or a big softie if you aren't Scottish )
I've never claimed to be an intrepid explorer.

Anyway.. I was passing heyharriet today and stopped to see her amazing shadow shot. If you haven't visited before then you really should as this week's shadow is a cracker.
Now, from my living room it looked like there might be some sunshine in the garden so I quickly grabbed my camera and nipped out to see what I could find. I don't have a huge house and it certainly doesn't take more than a few seconds to get from the front room to the back garden but the sun had all but gone by the time I got out. Nonetheless I was not to be deterred in my search for a shadow.

Okay, so four wheelie bins in a row may not be everyone's cup of tea but they do look rather fine with their shadows on. Oh.. and since you are obviously drawn to the gorgeous blue car, I thought I should include a totally gratuitous shot of my baby.

She could do with a bit of a wash right now but I do love my car. She is a Chrysler PT Cruiser and the best car I have ever had. I always wanted one but always thought it was a bit extravagant and settled for something a bit more compact. A couple of years ago, though, my husband had a bit of a tumble in my small sensible car and ended upside down in the middle of a roundabout. Now don't panic. He was absolutely fine, but the car was a complete right-off. Thanks to a very generous insurance company we were able to replace sensible with gorgeous. He likes to tell people that he nearly died just so that I could get my dream car, but that's a bit of an exaggeration.

 And in case anyone was wondering if I enjoyed seeing Showaddywaddy..
Here's a slighly dodgy shot of 'the boys' on stage at Pitlochry Festival Theatre on Friday night. It was a great night of music, nostalgia and a few laughs.

Very entertaining shadows.

My Shadows, have a blessed Sunday!

I am now your follower Ms. Fiona.

Hey, Showaddywaddy probably look better in slightly over-exposed shot these days!! Helps hide those wrinkles and grey hair! Glad you had a good time!

I love my car too .. just picked up a second-hand mini clubman cooper S - big enough for us and the dog and great fun to drive!! I do like the PT Cruisers too though - very different! Trust you've told your husband you're not keen on a Porsche or Ferrari ... just in case he has any ambitions to roll the Cruiser?!!

Glad you finally got some sun! Love the PT Cruiser!

Ms. Burrito said...

Would you please drop by and see my shadows? Would love to see you!

So nice to have you join in again. Yay for sunshine! And your bin shadows are very cool! As is your car! I just love the shade of blue. I've never heard of that band before and I'm not sure I'd be able to pronounce their crazy name! Great shot of them though! Have a great week and I hope it's filled with much more sunshine for you :)
