Shadow Shot Sunday/Keeping Busy


Shadow Shot Sunday. (See Hey Harriet for details and other participants) The first two pictures anyway.
An amazingly stormy Saturday with torrential rains and thunder.



Whereas the day before was sunny and bright. Tall buildings make one look upwards so you get to see a lot of clouds.
As regards keeping busy, my new computer can do fancy things - see the vignettes above.
Not sure if they are a good idea but fun to play with.
This keeps me busy.




We had two young visitors from Marrakech who arrived just after the thunderstorm. They are wonderfully creative and immediately set about making things.
I wish I had their energy.

  1. Oh those top shots look like that lomo fish-eye photography that you need special cameras for! And you did this on the computer? Looks very cool. Smarty pants!

    Hope you enjoyed the company of your energetic little visitors :)

  7. Harriet was right, the top shots look like you used a fish-eye lens! And seeing the children get creative reminds me that our school system is back in full force tomorrow. Can you imagine?

  8. Your blog has been included in our guide.

    Around The World with Daily Photoblogs Old and New is a brief history of the City Daily Photoblog movement and a guide to sites around the world.

    This guide is independent of the CDPB lists. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily), and archives are searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

  14. Pretty NYC sky. New computers are fun, you got a Macbook or???? Keep those kids busy, or maybe it's vice versa. Being include in the CDPB sounds like an honor, congrats.
