Shadows and Light at the Beach

Most of these were taken using a zoom lens from a hotel balcony overlooking the boardwalk at Virginia Beach. I did a lot of people-watching from that spot.

Picture #3 was taken within a few moments of one that I showed on Friday but I zoomed in on the man on the paddleboard.

Sharing with Shadow Shot Sunday

Bonus Picture: This sign was near our parking spot and it amused me. We did not ride on the ship though.


  1. Fantastic photo of the paddler, Linda! I think we all love people watching ;)

  2. We all have our alter shadow.

  3. Hello, great shadow shots. I like the paddleboarder photo. Happy Monday, Enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

  4. I really like these shadows that you've captured.

  5. Thanks for linking to Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

  6. Fun shots. Thanks for pointing out the blog issue. I emailed my designer. Usually it's in her end. But if I don't hear back soon I will try to see what I can do.

    1. Good. I hope she can fix it easily.

  7. In this summer heat, being at the beach must feel good.... My son and wife (in Texas) went to the movies yesterday to get away from the heat!!!!!


  8. Pirate ships need more water!

    There's one of them here, used for children's parties, usually.

  9. Nice pictures! You must have been to Virginia Beach shortly after we were there. That boardwalk was a popular spot.
