Shadow Women


shadows, originally uploaded by jo(e).

I've been wanting to introduce you all to some of my anonymous friends, and I finally figured out a way that I could do it.

Here they are: Quilt Artist, Long Beautiful Hair, Reiki Woman, Signing Woman, and Makes Bread. You see six shadows in the photo because I am in there too.

Great photo! But I thought you were going to introduce your anonymous friends at the bloggers-in-real-life party that everyone has volunteered you to host....

Friday Mom said...

Cool photo. So you aren't going to tell us which one is you?

reverendmother said...

It's like Charlie's Angels, but much much more fabulous.

Love it! Funny how much personality can come through even in a shadow. :)

What Now? said...

Excellent photo! Now did you take this photo specifically for pseudonymous blog purposes or was it already part of your collection?

Dr. H said...

awesome. :) personalities definitely captured. super fun. (kind of sounds like a haiku)

Scrivener said...

I was gonna ask the same question What Now? did. Great photo!

I haven't yet borrowed Shaggy Hair Boy's digital camera to take any photos specifically for my blog. And I don't have that many old photos to work with so what I've been showing you all are strangely random photos that I've found on my computer or stuffed in shoeboxes in my closet.

The Shadow Women photo was taken last fall. The six of us spend a weekend in the mountains every October. (Far away from husbands and kids!) We always take some group pictures -- in most of them you can actually see our faces. My family has a tradition of taking these kinds of shadow pictures though, so I made my friends do it as well.

Phantom, I think the blogger party has moved to David's house. He's even cleaned the carpets for us and all.

Scrivener said...

Yeah! Everyone's invited to my place! When can y'all show up?

Scrivener said...

Here's a formal invitation (and one of the pictures you requested, jo[e]).

Pilgrim/Heretic said...

Second from the left was my guess too! :)

jo(e) said...

Rana! You are good. Yes, I'm the second from the left. The only reason I can tell, actually, is that I know I am the person who took the picture and that shadow is facing the camera straight on, holding the camera at her waist. All the other shadows are turning, twisting, waving and generally being goofy but I was concentrating on getting the shot ....

Scrivener: Set a date and I'll fly down. I would love to meet the rest of your family. And all the cool bloggers!

ryc- I think there are so many men, because 'back then' boys were schooled more and girls were usually taught how to cook and do laundry and sew.

Neat picture.
