Shadow Shot Sunday!

With fall moving in, there may be less sun and perhaps less shadows, but hey! get creative! You can do it! And then join Tracy at Hey Harriet and the rest of us as we get into serious shadow hunting! Click here to sign in and join up! You'll love it!!

Ah, summer memories of leafy shadows on the sand at the beach!



The sun on the deck is a little lower, the shadows suddenly look smaller.



And there are always the fall shadows in the kitchen where we have big windows that catch every little ray of sun there is!





And finally the colored shadows in the basement have shifted from showing up on the bed, to a lampshade and the side of the window.



A wonderful friend of mine in Mumbai left these beautiful words on my post for the day and I want to include them here. To read more of her lovely words check out her site here

The Sun
shooting
its warmth
meets someone
but is stopped
in surprise
in its path.
Quietly ,
head down,
it goes round
who
it has met.
To meet and
shake hands
with a shadow....
Even the sun must learn
that there is
dark and light
in life,
and the way they meet
is wonderful....

Such beautiful shadows you've shared. And that is a lovely poem.

Thanks for welcoming me to this fun meme. ;-)

Pacey said...

oh, that smaller shadow is kinda neat, I seldom see one. You're creative Sylvia. :)

Ralph said...

All of these shots offer beautiful shadows. I really like the kitchen, the arched shadow of the Windsor back chair is great, the plant seems to enhance the shadow much like the plant in the room. Excellent!

I love the foliage shadow on the sand. It looks like an abstract painting.

Hot Fudge said...

Oh, what beautiful shots. How I'd love to pull up a chair in your kitchen, in a warm, sunny spot. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Lin Floyd said...

great shots...reminds me how the native americans used shadows so much in their rock art...to mark the passing of seasons.

Paula said...

It's always nice to see what kind of shadow play you're seeing around your home.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Now your talking,Lady? All shots are great and every one of them looks to have something to tell...

Very intriguing.

Maya said...

Lovely shadows. I like the dish rack as well with that hint of red.

moe lauher said...

Syvia, what a great grouping of shadows. I think the second photo is my favorite - that chair and table look like a great place to have a late afternoon cup of coffee.

twinklestarart said...

It's amazing how a collection of shadow shots that are taken from every day normality can be so beautiful. Lovely work, especially the colourful shadows.

Hey Harriet said...

What wonderful photos of sunshine and shadows Sylvia! I'd love to play but I'd have to make mine with a lamp and bunny-fingers; not enough sun here to find them just lying around LOL.
