weekly photo challenge: Shadow

 

This post is linked to the wpc for shadow (here)

This is the figure from last week…

 

shadow
I like the shadow in this shot because the shadow does not have the shape of the bottle – instead it has like five layers….. maybe six?  Can you see it?  My husband thought I staged this shot – but I did not. Seriously, I walked by – saw it exactly like this – took a photo. Then this guy looked at me – with a bit of a smile – he took a drink from this bottle and set it back down exactly like this and went back to where he was talking. I then took a second photo and went back to where we all were. This photo is special to me because for many years my boys like to wear Sabres gear – it reminds us of our family in Buffalo, NY. This photo is also special because on our last night in Buffalo – we somehow ended up having a few of these Labatt’s (without the Sabres wrapper). Not our first choice… because I prefer “Molson Canadian” when we visit – or some of the stuff our family makes, but it was fun how we ended up with a case of this and then we just hung out with family…. and yes, we also ended the trip with Buffalo wings and pie (pizza)! (see next photo)

Here is the nice delivery guy – he let me take his photo and it just so happened to have a shadow so I can include it in this wpc post.
pizza-and-wings
no shadow – but had to share the deliciousness – 20 wings, one large pizza, and lots of conversating.

 

shadow-4
I have no idea as to what this was – my phone accidentally took this shot – I think the top part is a shadow of some sort.  Either way, I like the colorful gritty feeling of this image. It reminds me of coming together with family and staying strong during a challenging time.

  1. That was an interesting shot of the bottle and the darts. We could see why hubby would think it was composed, lol. You can’t beat buffalo wings, yummy. We like them so much we have our cardiologist on speed dial. As for the “accidental” shot, I recall seeing something similar when they administered the Rorschach test on me, lol, lol.

    1. well I have to tell you that your comment had me rolling a bit – thanks for the really great laugh – the doc on speed dial – bah.
      and the test – doubly funny.

      and my hubs was joking yesterday and said “I wonder what it would be like if someone ate wings every day” – like how would it impact them internally and externally…..

  2. Pizza and wings. What a combo. It’s not a combo that we too much of that combo here in Oz. It is usually one of the other. When it comes to yummy fast food and eating, the States win 😊 More pizza and wings, more food, more conversation 😊

    1. Hi M – well this area is specifically noted for “pizza and wings” and when i was calling – it was in a large suv and I could barely hear the guy as he rattled off combo options – I finally said, “I’ll take that option” – half knowing what it was – tired and drained – and well – it turned out to be perfect.
      and we might beat you with pizza – but heard your beef and certain grilling items are top notch – and looking forward to trying “Vegemite” sometime????

      1. The more I look at your pizza and wings, the more I want them. We do have Korean spicy wings here in Australia, but I don’t think they are a match for good old and tasty Western fast food.

        Lol, your instincts are on point even when you are tired 🙂 Ahhh…Vegemite. I am not a fan of it and let’s leave it at that 😀 We do have very lovely wagyu beef and seafood too. Very fine and delectable summer foods.

      2. the summer foods sound very good. and actually, so do the Korean spicy wings. There were chicken wings out at various times throughout the week – but this delivery from Wise Guys pizza was the best – the aroma from that box was “classic” Buffalo sauce smell (which I think is Frank’s red Hot) – as opposed to BBQ wings or different sauces at places like Doc Sullivan’s… so the “classic” wings were the perfect thing to wind down the trip….

      3. Ah, Buffalo sauce1 Something I’ve heard a lot about but never have come across. Another reason to do a trip there. And also to try Frank’s hot sauce. In Australia we do have BBQ sauce but a lot of it is on the sweet side and not my kind of sauce…

      4. I do not like sweet sauces – and I have never been a fan of any BBQ sauce.
        and mabel – it was so weird smelling the aroma from the box – the first whiff was truly a flashback.

      5. yes – and wow – there are so many mustards here – sriracha is a popular one – and some with horseradish….
        and I did not get to take a photo – but in Buffalo they have these hotdogs called “texas hots” with the nick name of slime dogs – and they have mustard – meat sauce and all these trimmings… I have an old photo I can show you later – they are a very unique food.

  3. The foods look good 🙂

    Shadows sometimes are interesting to look at. I recently observed shadows of a ping pong ball. There were four of them stood out from 4 direction from a single ball. I was fascinated by it.

    1. thanks Lisa – and he was a nice guy – they were all very cool – and Buffalo is noted for the “good people” which I find mostly to be true – not always…. but mostly.

  4. What an interesting post Y! Each is so unique and tells a different story. The figurine is a favorite and I was hoping you would post it in the challenge. And the shadow with layers, i would have never seen it had you not pointed it out. The pizza guy is cool and the tree in the background is cooler! Famished— off for some breakfast, will see your art post later 🙂 Have a great day

    1. well thanks for the feedback, DawD. And I had that figurine shadow shot from last week and so this was rather a hodge podge post….
      and at one point on our trip – I actually told someone a quick version of your flash fiction piece about dreaming and the Buffalo flew away – omg – so good
