Shadow Play – Picnic Tables

Viewing table shadows one way, they might look like giant marching creatures:

But from the other side, the shadows are harmless toy trucks:

For more fun with shadows visit Hey Harriet hosted by Tracy.

I see the legs, the tables in tandem, almost like a millipede marching. Wait, that' too many legs...but the concept is sound! The desert is beautiful, I am sure you await the cactus blooms soon!

You've been busy taking photos; I see I've missed several posts.

Funny how direction changes the definition of the shadow! I like the marching creatures. =D

Your weekend reflection is quite stunning; beautiful colors, too!

My husband and I simply ooohed and ahhhhed over your Monday morning fog captures. They are outstanding! (Are those the Santa Catalina mountains?)

Love these. Just so substantial.

Great shadows, Diane... I like the 'toy trucks' better than the 'giant creatures'... ha ha

Hugs,

Good pictures, two different perpectives.

Even those picnic tables are very attractive with the nice background of the mountains. Yes you're right, they do look like toy trucks in the second picture, or the front of a choochoo train.

Ohh, I like how you see something in those shadows. I might not have seen that. Beautiful background.

So much to see down the horizon. Sitting there waiting the sun down to come seems so cool.

Great shots!

These shots are really cool. There are so many stories you can conjure up with these photos.

You have such a lovely imagination!

I'm thinking the tables and benches here see a lot of sun and cast shadows most of the year,
