Shadow Shot Sunday #13 (56)

Sunday Again! (in Australia :))

I’ve cobbled up a few photos on the theme of seating. All of them are from my vacation in Himachal Pradesh, last week.

Travel Companions: My friend J is seated on a rock besides a mountain stream, while our driver Ram Singh, who drove us safely across all those curvy mountain roads, stands in the background.

We stayed at the Palace Hotel in Chail. The story goes that the British expelled the Maharaja of Patiala from his summer capital, Shimla, for making some  groovy ‘moves’ against an Englishwoman.  Off to Chail he went, situated higher than Shimla and built an even grander palace. This is now converted into Heritage Hotel, accommodating even plebeians like me 🙂

SSS was not too far from my mind. Shadows were just about everywhere. I took the following two photos a the Palace grounds, specifically for  SSS.

Have a happy week everyone!

    I love the last pix. I been drolling for this kind of chair, a table and bench that I can put in my entrance way but to no avail.

    You’re lucky with the weather downthere. Me, am struggling the shots for my shadows as we have rain the whole week-end. But as usual, my fam n me make the best of the situation.

    Great job, dear… have a happy SSS

  3. Yes….that white chair is worth coveting! Great shot! Your vacation photos are great – especially love the one below of the stepped houses – this is wonderful!

    Wonderful shots, as we search for shadows everywhere these days, who would’ve thought something so ordinary would bring so many people together…happy SSS!

    What a trip! So we both posted seating shadows this week. I have to say that yours are a lot more exciting and exotic than mine!

    And your photos in your previous post are stunning!
