Shadow Shot Sunday – Winter is Coming

20171123-141327-10

We are in between seasons. Lots of trees have lots their leaves and other trees still have them plus a lot of the shrubs are still green. A few more freezes will take care of all that. This is from my MIL’s house while I was getting some fresh air on Thanksgiving.

Long shadows in the early morning near the start of a race I was in. See the confetti on the ground. They used a confetti cannon for the start. I’m wondering if that is why the toddler has an umbrella. There was so much confetti you had to watch to keep it from going in your mouth as you ran through it.

At work we had a little maintenance work going on. The cherry picker was in the sunlight for a little bit.

One day at lunch I went geocaching at a park at the Tulsa suburb of Sand Springs. It had been a while since I had been there (several years actually) and they had some cool sculptures cut out of sheets of steel. I love stuff like this.

Shadow Shot Sunday – New Years Eve Walk at Ray Harral Nature Park

_DSC0627

Logan and I went for a little hike on New Years Eve. He had his wisdom teeth taken out a few days ago and he was supposed to be quiet but by NYE both he and I were pretty owly and needed some fresh air and walking time. I have a hard to shake sinus infection and so I haven’t been doing much either.

So off he went!! He isn’t into running much but he was pretty restless. We went to Ray Harral Nature Park in Broken Arrow, a suburb of Tulsa. I kind of like it. It has lots of trails and not very many people. By planning your route you can get a couple miles in by varying the loops available.

The woods were grey but I did find a cardinal hiding from me in the shadows for a bit of red.

I finally catching up with the kid. There is something about pedestrian bridges that I love. I alos feel compelled to tilt the camera. For some reason it seems more interesting.

How about you? What do you tilt the camera for?

I’m linking with Shadow Shot Sunday today.

I wish everybody a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

Shadow Shot Sunday – Linnaeus Gardens Shadows

_DSC0122

I dropped the kid off at his Improv Comedy group today at drove up to Woodward Park and it’s fabulous Linnaeus Teaching Gardens. A small demonstration garden just packed with stuff but it is all so well designed that the density works. This time of year they generally have lots of shadows.

This shot had shadows of shadows.

I love the walkway to the Gardens. Lots of different light and textures.

Outside the gardens and inside Woodward Park I found this group of women getting ready for a shoot.  I thought they were an elegant group. I hope they don’t mind me stealing a shot.

I saw a cat and called, here Kitty Kitty, and here it came so that is probably his name, right? He was a curious cat. He may even be a watch cat. He inspected everybody who came by.  Kitty Kitty quickly became bored with me and walked off with a dismissive flick of his tail.

Have you ever been dismissed by a cat?

Shadow Shot Sunday – Downtown Tulsa Shadows

Autumn is here and some of the trees are changing colors. We are several weeks behind friends in Colorado and elsewhere higher and further north.

There is still lots of green. I love this ramada at Guthrie Green just north of downtown. Nice and shady in the summer and sunny in the winter when all the leaves fall off.

Our downtown Library is reopening after a three year renovation. I’ll be going there later today to check it out. Solar heating, rainwater collection systems, revamped heating and air,  a 3D printer, enhanced technology. I haven’t heard anything about books. Do libraries still have books? You can depend on me to let you know.

I’m linking with Shadow Shot Sunday (even though it is Saturday). Sunday will be here soon enough.

We are back in Tulsa now and we are loading SPB up to drive half a day down to Texas to deliver him to a Summer Camp. We’re going to miss him! But we are going to have fun ourselves. I hope that we remember to go pick him up.
