The underside of a metal catwalk on a late afternoon makes a calculated addition to the Shadow Shot Sunday oeuvre. Multiply that by this division of talented photographers and you can sum up the total experience nicely.

A bit of serendipity with this one, as the stripes on the bus shelter echo the California Lottery logo. In fact, this is probably the first shot I've taken with those stripes that I like (and I've taken a lot).

A garage painted by local muralist Amanda Lynn (not a guitar or a banjo) enjoys some leafy shade in the middle of a summer day. Must be Shadow Shot Sunday, for me, for Amanda Lynn and for all these talented people around the world.

People who follow my photostream on Flickr know that I'm obsessed with couches in outdoor settings, whether they be abandoned on an urban sidewalk, tossed away in a back alley or set up in an empty field somewhere miles from anything. I ran across this beauty being carried from a garage sale to a new home a couple blocks away last weekend in the Haight, and took a few shots of it on the move. I really like this particular one, what with the light, the framing of the tree on the right and the couple pausing for a break.
Your mileage may vary, of course.

Apropos of not much, here is the man behind the blog. If it weren't for him, none of this would be possible. I caught this candid shot on last Friday's photowalk, and Tom himself said that he doesn't hate it.
High praise indeed.
Thanks for the Exhibition at which we show off our Pixels, my friend.

From my road trip up to the northern Sierra last weekend, this is Pink Owl's Clover (Orthocarpus cuspidatus) along the Sagehen Creek trail, Tahoe National Forest.
Read the Shadow Shot Sunday rules, and then participate. If, y'know, you want to.

My title is the title of a Richard Buckner song. I was on my way to see him the day I took this, FWIW. Mary objects to the wires, but I think they're kind of wonderful.
I'm currently without my good camera, which I broke and had to send to Nikon for repair. You know the birds are going to go nuts on me while it's away, right?
And while I'm raving with heatstroke, I'll point out to our audience, including that E6 guy who I see has been around, that Flickr has upgraded its photo viewer. Go to a photo's page and click on the photo again, and a magnificent, full-screen lightbox viewer will open. You can then scroll through a whole set of photos. It's pretty great.

And what could be more stylish than a vintage Cadillac pulling an Airstream?
Speaking of which, I'm off at the cracko tomorrow (no Shadow Shot Sunday for me, alas) for a wildflower-chasing roadtrip around the northern Sierra. Y'all behave yourselves in my absence, and have a great holiday weekend!

Here's another shot from my flight back from Boston last month. We flew over Yosemite around the latitude of the Tioga Pass Road, and the folks on the left side of the plane probably got a great view of the Valley while we on the right...didn't. But somewhere near the western boundary of the park, the pilot turned sharply south and then turned north again, so we on the right side got this view straight up the Valley (and Tenaya Canyon). That's El Capitan in the foreground, and of course Half Dome near the center.
