Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Strange Garden Feature


A rather strange feature at the end of a driveway in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula

Garden curiosity
Like a portable furnace
Land of Giants' toy


Welcome to the new world of Shadow Shot Sunday!

Your hosts are:
Magical Mystical Teacher
Rose (a.k.a. chubskulit)
Gemma Wiseman

Shadow quote found on Rambling Woods blog:
What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
~ Crowfoot Tribe

NEWS FLASH!
I am seeking and collecting shadow quotes.
If you find a shadow quote, (or would like to create your own) include it in ANY of your SSS2 blog posts.
(There is now a button for shadow quotes just beneath the header. This will be a database of shadow quotes, so you will see what has been collected.)
Each time it is my turn to post on SSS2, I will include one of these quotes + a link to your blog post.
PLUS
Antonella of
Quilling, Art and Expression
is offering free digi-s each week of the SSS2 quote!
Her first post is
HERE
and her second is
HERE!
Thank you ever so much from all the shadow catchers!



May the sunlight and shadows always be with you!

That is a common feature in alot of gardens : ) Only with our fire regulations .. we can't have one .. but if I only use it for decoration ? .. a very pretty shadow shot indeed though !

thank you for hosting SSS2!

I used to have a chiminea similar to that one. It is a great way to contain a small fire as an outdoor fireplace. :)

Can't wait what you're cooking for us! :)
Happy Sunday!

Robin at One Still Frame has a great collection of shadow quotes. If she doesn't send you what she has, I can send you what I've 'collected' from her (which will not be nearly as extensive as what she has.
Great idea!!!!!

Kelly said...

I think it's great that you're now including shadow quotes! This is becoming our "one-stop shop" for shadows! :)

chubskulit said...

That's a very unique garden display! Happy shadow hunting everyone and have great weekend as well!

It looks like a large mouth, fairytale size. I like the shadows on the shingles too. Here's entry on Shadows that I once posted on my blog with maybe a quote in it somewhere: http://www.looseleafnotes.com/wp/2005/05/the-shadows/

John said...

That's a beauty! I saw a lot of those in Asian countries.

Laura said...

Perfect haiku with your image Gemma!

Dina said...

OK, I'll be on the outlook for shadow quotations. Nice idea to collect them here.

Doug Peabody said...

I'm looking through a window at my shadow shot.

Looks like it's got it's mouth open wide for a cool drink!
So happy to join you all this week :)

John McElveen said...

What an awesome chimenea-(sp?)...Lovely place for shadows to dance by firelight!!!!
GREAT SHOT--and I loved the Beach Shot-0 with the lines, the pier and the background---EYE CANDY--you can study it for a long time!

Blessings,

John

Riet said...

It looks like a barbaecue to me. Great shadowshot

Joan said...

I would love this out on my back patio!

NatureFootstep said...

nice piece. It has flames around the opening. Some oven maybe? Nice shadows.

Kay L. Davies said...

Those heater/furnaces are popular around here. Nice shadow shot, Gemma.

Mama Zen said...

Nice shot!

Alexa said...

With one of these, you can enjoy your garden even in chilly weather (although it does seem a bit too close to the building and fence). Great shadows anyway!

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

Gorgeous shadow shot, perhaps it is only garden art and not actually used.

Costin Comba said...

the entry in the container is a Sun. Great. Greetings to all. Have a nice day.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I just added a quotation for you on my Sunday Shadow Blog.

Daryl Edelstein said...

Love the quote idea .. going to keep my eyes/ears open! The odd portable furnace is called a Chimera and its used to contain a fire outdoors on a deck or porch ...

Southwest Arkie said...

Nice shot, and I love shadow quotes- great idea!

Eden said...

I love that garden feature. Great shot.

FiveSibesMom said...

I love how Shadow Shots are everywhere...we just have to look! Nice shadow shot! I use a lot of quotes and poetry with my Sunday Shadow Shots, so I'll keep an eye open for specific shadow ones.

LV said...

Strange things make for interesting shadows at the end of a day. Nicely done.

jewaicious said...

Along with the shadows, I like the texture blends and tones...lovely capture.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I think it is called a chiminea (chim-in-AY-a) and they have them a lot in cool, not cold, climates. I want one! Gemma, I had a very strange popup from this site that said "Your download is beginning." That's not too good!

Chubby N Chieque said...

Graciousness... an absolutely the best evah SS.

My dream grill too.

Happy SSS, although I am so tardy this week-end but I managed.

Greetings from freezing STockholMer,

Cassie said...

Ha ha! The chiminea is a common site here in Phoenix, Arizona, since we are not that far from Mexico, where they generally are made! We had one in our back yard at our old house. That's a cool ShadowShot, especially coming from soooo far away as Australia. Happy SSS.

Icy BC said...

That's so cool to see!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...
