Shadowy Flags

Gabba Gabba Hey! Shadow Shot Sunday...2!


Welcome, all, to Shadow Shot Sunday 2! Your faithful hosts are:
and

With standby hosts: Desirae, Katerina, Suzanne, and myself, Toby! How very exciting it is to host this meme, one of my very favorites!

This past week we celebrated Israel's Independence Day, and the whole country is still adorned with flags of all shapes and sizes. We have a string of flags hanging on our balcony, and in the morning sun, they created this very festive shadow:


And here comes the haiku, naturally:

Blowing here and there
Everything seems blue and white
Good thing they're tied on!

All that's left now is for all of you to join along in the game! Just post something shadowy (and please link here when you do), and then sign up below! And don't forget to go and visit the other posts - it's fun to see shadows from all over the world!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Thank you, Toby and all the 'new' standby SSS2 hosts!! I, for one, am VERY grateful to all the SSS2 hosts (and originator, Tracy) for giving me a place to put one of my favorite indulgences.

You guys ROCK!

The old wall is enhanced so well with the fluttering flags flying out of sight but leaving great yet subtle shadows...Happy 65th Independence Day!

Looks like it's gonna be a great day!

Is there any chance of moving to a thumbnail linky? I sure would like a peek at people's posts. I think it really encourages visiting. Just a thought.

Thanks for hosting, all!

Nice! I can imagine seeing them swinging in the breeze.

Cool shadows dancing on the garden wall.

I can feel the flags flapping!

I've been absent for a few weeks but have returned. Thank you for hosting! I love this meme.

I also like your haiku. I need to try that sometime.

the texture and colour of that wall is perfect to show off those muted shadows. Great shot. I've posted a bit late, in link number 63.

Thank you Toby for adding the haiku to the picture ... very fitting. The shadow is suggestive of many things depending on where you are in life.
