Old Photo - Shadow Shot Sunday


I found this shadowy picture in an old photo album packed away ...
Grampa and Grandma G.
They must have been fascinated with this bird - there were several shots of it.

January, 1980 - Two years before they came into my life, they went on a trip - from their home in Oregon to Arizona - with many stops along the way.

They loved to travel. I miss them so much.

To see amazing shadows captured around the world, visit Hey Harriet - and join us for Shadow Shot Sunday!

Such an amazing chair shadow for wonderful memories.

Great shot, Clytie.

The webbing on the chair is from an earlier era - we all grew up with these in the 1960s. The empty chairs are a reminder of who they were and how wonderfully they affected us in belief and action, Poignant these chairs are...

A beautiful post and a lovely vintage style shadow shot! I almost didn't notice the bird until you mentioned him being there :)

Yes it's fine to use that heart graffiti pic of mine for your Guest Heart Thursday. You're more than welcome!

Have yourself a great week ahead!

The chair and bird look like ghosts while the shadow looks alive. Amazing!
