Sunday Shadow Shot

Today I can't take any credit for the photographs I'm posting...

They were taken by M, my 18 year old son, for a school project a couple of years ago.

I thought they could work for a SSS post...
M has been in England for 2 weeks now and I'm missing him a lot...I could send him an email and tell him to check this post, but...he's 18, he's with friends and this is the first time out of the country without the rest of the family.... I don't think he has time for blogging!!!

Fantastic. Your son has a good eye.

I so seldom see my 21 year old Grandson these days, that is unless it's laundry day...but what a cool shot he sent you, clever boy!

I just love the bottom one. Super! And absolutely, adolescence is nature's way of getting the kids to leave. They'd never go and we'd never let them otherwise!

Martha said...

The growing up stuff just makes my heart ache! I always wonder where the years have gone. The photos are wonderful! I love the one in the tunnel, that one should be framed!

Hey Harriet said...

That second one is awesome! Your son must be having the time of his life overseas. Lucky young man! He'll be back before you know it :)

Congratulations to your artistic son!
Our daughter is in England.
Would you believe it was her photos that first got Tracy (Hey Harriet) interested in Shadow shot Sunday.

Wow, that last photo is fantastic! I remember my first trip away from home. Such fun! He'll be back soon with lots of stories to tell you. I hope he brings you back a good souvenir.

Firstly~ Thanks for checking up on me. I was away part of the time and the first part of the time getting my 90-year old Papa well again.

Secondly~ Some weeks I feel like my teenagers have already prepared me for the empty nest. I seem to long for solitude these days.

Wait and see the difference in your son when he comes home. He will be a confident young man. You will have felt as if much time has gone by and your little boy is all grown up.

Love the long shadow in the tunnel shot! And the "cloud shadows" by your son is wonderful... What a nice reminder that he's just beyond the horizon :)

Love these...especially the 2nd one!

Glad you loved the "hockey tickets"...lol...my Grammy used to call poo, hockey. We were not allowed to say the words "toilet paper" when we were little so hence calling the toilet paper hockey tickets! Only in America *snort*
Love you girls!
