You Capture: Week Four - Shadows

I'll admit, I was tempted to photograph my own shadow. BUT I DIDN'T, okay? I instead decided to challenge myself.
I packed up the kiddo and headed to the park for some inspiration.
And I find nothing more inspiring that my sweet little boy.

He's been walking about a month and here he is checking out the basketball hoop. He'll be shooting jumpers in no time!

But he still trips - he's just about to go down.

And finally, I call this Tire Swing in Motion. Artsy, huh?

If I had to chose a favorite (and I think I do), I'd definitely pick the tripping photo, because I like the motion it shows in just the shadow.

So that's me for this week - thanks for stopping by! For more shadows, click on over to I Should Be Folding Laundry.

I just love that little baby walk. The way they toddle around because they have just learned to walk. :)

I am really getting into this shadow picture thing! I'd like to get my toddler outside and get some large shadow shots like yours. For some reason, I kept thinking shadow=nighttime! Talk about forgetting to think out of the box! These are super cute shots!

I like how his shadow is framed by the hoop's shadow in the first one.

Cute, cute, I love the shot with the swing--it says a lot. :)

Nice! The one of the bottom half of your baby and his full shadow is priceless.

Carebear said...

The first two are really cute (love the basketball hoop as point of reference for how little your guy is!) but the tire swing in motion ROCKS!

Jessi said...

I agree with you on the tripping shot, great capture!

They're all good, but I love the first one.

Great captures - especially of your son. Those are the ones that you will be able to go back on and reflect upon them with fondness in years to come.
