For This Weekend Only - Weekend Reflections, Shadow Shot Sunday and Pet Pride!

Well, unfortunately I'm not going to be able to go camping this weekend after all and I am, of course, disappointed. But some back problems made me decide I would be better off remaining at home -- don't want to push my luck. So, this week only I will combine my reflections, shadows and pets. Hope you all have a terrific weekend! Enjoy!










I thought we were going camping! What happened?



You are going, silly! It's Mom and I who are staying home! Darn it!

Sylvia, I am so sorry that your camping weekend didn't work out. You do, however live in a very beautiful place! Enjoy your home time this weekend.

I really appreciate your upbeat, happy and encouraging comments on my blog. It means a lot to me. You must have to spend many hours at the computer to keep up with all these blogs!

Thanks for your compliments Sylvia, they are always appreciated! I just love the reflections and shadows shots.

Sorry that you can't go camping this weekend. Though with the clouds and chance of rain, I suppose that this is a good weekend to miss if you have to.

I love the glass in the window. So colorful.

Cezar and Léia said...

Hello Sylvia

So sorry to read about your back problems - I hope the rest this weekend will do it good and that you'll soon be able to go camping again.

I don't participate in the other memes you have in your post today so it was nice to see some shadows and your beautiful dogs aswell as that lovely reflection.

Rest well :) Rosie

Great shots, as always.

Wow, sorry you can't make it out for the camping trip. But you know, while the dogs would have loved to go they are just as happy being at home taking care of you. :-) Great shots too, by the way. I love the colors in the glass! I don't mean to rub salt in the wound, but we are heading out for a week at the coast. Perhaps I'll make an image that can help get through the week.

Take care

Great shots, Sylvia, for all three subjects! I really enjoy them!
I wish you a beautiful weekend!

I find it strange that neither Google Chrome nor Mozilla Firefox display the nice colored scrollbars (a HTML option): only Internet Explorer does!

Serendipity said...

Beautiful reflection! And I like the red shadow :)

James said...

I love the reflections. I'm sorry that your back is giving you trouble and I can totally relate. You're smart not to over do it.

Have a healing weekend.

Denise said...

What a shame about the camping trip Sylvia, but I think you are wise to listen to your back. Mine isn't that great these days, though camping does sound like a lot of fun. Lovely photos! And I am in love with your area after our third trip to Seattle. We'll be heading out that way again one of these days and I'm hoping for more time so that we can meet up. That would be lovely :)

Gattina said...

Camping will be for another time, think : Home sweet Home ! your dogs are certainly happy to stay home !

Thom said...

You can go camping anytime my friend. Your health is much more important. Love the photos. All of them. Very well done all of them. Sam will be good company for you :) Take care of that back and have a relaxing weekend :)

joo said...

I love all of your photos today, but your 'Pet Pride' ones are my favourite!
Have a beautiful weekend:)

Mama Zen said...

John McDevitt said...

Your first reflection shot is nice -- the glassware in the second shot is superb. I love the translucent colors and the reflections. Very nice indeed!

Beverley Baird said...

Here's wishing you a speedy recovery. I think back pain is one of the worse. Take care of yourself!
All great photos! Your dogs are adorable as always and love the blue glass reflection.

Bellybytes said...

Sorry about the bad back. Hope you rest it well. Thanks for sharing the pet pictures though.

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

Bummer that your back is giving you trouble. Sure hope you feel better soon. You are such a positive person -- even in the face of disappointment -- thanks for sharing it with all of us!

Lindy MacDuff said...

Sure hope those back problems are short-lived.

Great reflection and shadow images. Of course, what's not to love about photos of dogs?! =)

Take care ~

Great photographs Sylvia.
Get well soon.

Fantastic reflection in the first image. «Louis» really likes the play of the sunlight through the colored glass in the window sill in the second image.

Carolyn Ford said...

I am so sorry that you are having back problems and missing an outing...your storyline with your photos is cute. Your 2 dogs are adorable...bet they are fun on a camping trip, too. The glassware shadows are so colorful and whimsical. And, the reflections...so nice! Take care this weekend and mend...next week will be better.

Vernz said...

Hi Sylvia, your dog is lovely.... love your jar too... Anything Davao

Rosadimaggio63 said...

Ciao Sylvia,
i tuoi cani sono adorabili !
Buona giornata.
Da oggi sono finalmente in ferie :-))

jabblog said...

Ouch! Take care, Sylvia - you were wise not to go, though it's disappointing. Love your shots and I'm sure Sam will enjoy having you all to himself for a while :-)

Ann said...

Do dogs get disappointed if they don't get to go out?

Take plenty of rest, like my mum use to say, the camping ground will still be there when you are better.

Elisa said...

Such a beautiful series of pictures!

So sorry your camping plans won't be played out. Hope you feel better soon!!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Good decision, camping is no place for a bad back.

Great images as usual.

sarayutouched said...

...take some time to mend...it is important.
hope that you will be back to feeling better in no time!! lovely photos...as always.

'Tsuki said...

I just love the second one, with the colorful glass pots... It is really beautiful, those colored shadows... Great pic indeed !

Paula Scott said...

I know first hand about those back problems! It is wise to listen to your intuition even though it means missing out on a great camping trip.
I hope you have a great weekend anyway!

tilden talks... said...

sylvia, can i swim in that very nice reflection? and will the nice brown dog accompany me?

Nessa said...

I'm sorry your camping plans got messed up. Staying home is nice too though.

EG Wow said...

I hope your back is healing quickly, Sylvia. Your reflection shot is neat!

JayLeigh said...

So pretty! ♥ I really like the colors in the shadow shot. Your doggies are adorable! How disappointing to not be able to go camping. :( Take care and feel better soon!

Jonny Hamachi said...

Hang in there.

Hey Harriet said...

I'm so sorry that you missed out on your camping trip due to back issues. You poor thing! I hope you recover quickly. Take things easy and rest up over the weekend :)

Kay said...

I am terribly partial to the colored shadows. I am finding all these muscle and back/butt aches really annoying. I've just bought a bottle of Motrin to get me through this.

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

Oh, camping sounds like great fun! I'd love to go!! Woof! Woof!

Hope your back will get better soon.
Lovely shadow shots again!
Have a great day and a good week ahead!

jlshall said...

Lovely photos, as always! Hope your back is better soon - back problems are really awful (I know).

But I'm not really a camping fan - I'd probably be tempted to fake a backache just to avoid having to camp out!

Happy Sunday! from Joy @ Joysweb

frayedattheedge said...

Hi Sylvia - I'm sorry you missed your camping trip - I hope you recover soon! I love all your photos - but just for a change, my favourites this week are the 4-legged ones! Anne x

Ruth said...

Beautiful photo collection! I especially love the colored bottles/glass by the window.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Hope your back is better soon, Sylvia! Your shadow shots are nice, as always. Hopefully you can go camping when you feel better!

Birgitta "foto CHIP" said...

I remember the shots and I like to see them again. Give Sam a hug :)
Happy SSS!

Well, the great outdoors will always be there (let's hope!) so here's to 'next time' -- meanwhile those are some beautiful sunshiny photos!

Love the Sam and Mojo dialogue + their photos! And beautiful depth of colour in your shadows!
