Shadow shots from different places this Sunday

Dick, right, and others, make shadows on the Spirit of Kauai as they prepare to go snorkeling as part of our 'Captain Andy' catamaran cruise in Hawaii last month. Unfortunately, I didn't feel well enough to snorkel.
A rather interesting little dragon and his shadow in China's Forbidden City.

This cute little juvenile Nazca Booby casts a shadow on the rocky soil of one of the Galapagos islands.

We had an excellent guide named Arnold when we visited China. Arnold, center, talks to the group, most of whom are in the shadow of the building at left. My husband Dick, with his shady hat, stood in the sun at right, to hear Arnold talk about the history of this section of the ancient emperors' fabulous Forbidden City.

Too many shadows to count when Dick photographed this hotel in California's Old Town San Diego.

You sure do get around and to nice sunny places with shadows.
Hint, if you want sun do not come to California's central valley mid December to mid February. Low clouds and fog, day in and day out.
We had one sunny day last week and I got a few decent shots.

They have some funny names for birds in English: tits, boobies! I start to wonder about the people (men) who named them!!

Kay said...

Actually that Hacienda Hotel looks like a really fabulous place to stay and just as interesting looking as the other places. ;-)

Your travels are varied - and amazing! Paradise exists all over the globe, and you have found several of them already! I have never seen a Nazca Booby - what a shape and what feet! All these views look much different than winter on the prarie...

Oh wow, Kay you took me right into the forbidden city in China! Thanks for the tour. I love the shadow shots. Is the Booby so tame that you can photograph it so closely? thanks for all your visits and lovely comments on my blog. Hope you're having a great weekend. (((Hugs))) Jo

I love San Diego. We used to go there quite frequently when we lived in Southern California. We would fly our plane to the main airport, walk up the street and catch the trolly, or just stroll along the sea walk to our hotel. I miss those trips. - Margy

Your photos are always so exciting! It's like being transported away on a little virtual holiday! Nazca Booby? Hehe... (ok, I think perhaps I am the juvenile one here ;)
