Mundane Monday #181: shadow

For Mundane Monday #181, my theme is shadow. Halloween is approaching, yesterday was gloriously sunny in the afternoon here, but the shadows are darkest when the sun is brightest. Contrast. I took this from a downtown restaurant balcony, out over the water.

What shadows and contrasts have you photographed? Send your link or a message, and they will be posted next week.

From last week, Mundane Monday #180: fall coral.

Kudos to Kops

The Kinetic Kops do krowd kontrol for the Kinetic Sculpture Race. Mostly to keep spectators, especially spectators with cameras, from being run over. Some of these machines are large and heavy and may not stop on a dime. Some of them went down to the water fast, gathering momentum, with spectators lining the way. People get distracted by the costumes and glitter and forget that these are built to climb hills, go through mud, go on water, human powered.

So Kudos to Kinetic Kops for protecting us all!

clew lines

I am a day late for the clew prompt, but here are lines and rigging on the Lady Washington, in the Port Townsend boatyard getting her boat equivalent of a physical. Do square rigged sails have clews?
