Focus on Life Week 43: In the Shadows

This is a great theme for the week-end before Halloween. It brings to mind goblins and scary creatures lurking in the dark waiting to pounce! I saw some goblins and scary creatures last Sunday when we hosted a group birthday celebration for five of our nephews who all have birthdays clustered together in the fall. We called it the Birthday Boys Bowling Bash and the bowling venue features cosmic bowling every Sunday. What might you ask is Cosmic Bowling? They turn out the main lights in the bowling alley and rely on neon lights, loud music and affects that make certain colors glow in the dark. This is where the shadows come in.

This past Sunday, Cosmic Bowling had the added feature of a Halloween theme. Here you see the boys clustered at the entrance, where a scary blow-up creature hovers over them.
Here are the shadows.... in the foreground of the photo, you can see my sister bending over Tyler, age four, who needs a little extra assistance guiding the bowling ball.


It was tough to capture the cosmic lighting on my iphone but here's a try.





















And to cap off bowling, we have some very scary faces.





















.....Followed by some happier faces at the restaurant where we completed the birthday event!




















Now, carefully step on over to Sally's blog to see more shadowy tales.

Oh man, such memories. I haven't been to a cosmic bowl since I was....well let's say a very long time. I know you all had a blast! Thanks for the great post!

Great photos! The boys looked like they were having a blast. I have been cosmic bowling--or cyber bowling in our case, and it was a lot of fun. You captured some amazing light and shadows.

White clothing glows beautifully in black light... balck lit bowling ally with everyone wearing white would be great for a ghostly hallowe'en theme! Looks like everyone had fun!
