Shadow Shot Sunday!

Get out the magnifying glass, get into your best sleuthing clothes and start prowling your environment looking for those wonderful, but sometimes elusive shadows. This fun and challenging meme is hosted each week by Tracy over at Hey Harriet! Click on the icon, sign up and show us how clever you are!

I can't believe we're already approaching Fall! Our weather has been good -- gray and overcast in the morning, but it burns off by noon and it's usually really beautiful for the rest of the day -- highs in the mid to upper 60s, low 70s! So, here are my shadow shots for the day!

An excellent collage to remember the best of summer.

Tom Hilton said...

Another great collage! The vase is my favorite of course, but I also really like the flower shadows and the person (you?) shadow...

Have a great weekend!

Ralph said...

Flowers, dogs, colored glass and photo artists. What better subjects for a shadowy post??

I love the photo of the dog in front of the water and the one of you're shadow on the wall.

Sounds like the afternoons are comfortable where you are.

I especially love the dog picture

Summer persists here --thank heavens!

Paula Scott said...

I like how you 'snuck' in that self portrait of you! A great series of shots as usual! Glad to hear your weather is holding up for you. We can feel fall in the air here only in the early mornings. Funny how it is right on cue.

A very lovely collage Sylvia! I especially like the purple blossom. The changing seasons never cease to astound and amaze me - you are moving into Fall and we are moving into Spring! Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Can you believe it's almost September, where did our summer go. I felt like I was locked in the air conditioning for half of it...I so love the windows open and the curtains blowing in the warm(not steamy)breezes!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

You've managed to create the perfect shadow shots. Very artistic, I am in awe.

Hi Sylvia, I see your special doggy friend is still featuring in your Shadow shots and from a magnificent platform!! Great array of shots, but in particular your blue shadow is just beautiful. Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Your photos are gorgeous. Summer went so fast, it's hard to believe fall is so close. It's all good with images like these, though!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Sylvia - is your Christmas Cactus blooming? How do you do it? Mine has NEVER bloomed (wait...do you water it??!!!!) Another great collection of shadows for us this week - enjoy your cooler weather!!

Lynette Killam said...

Great post, Sylvia..I love the collage! I can tell Shadow Sunday is going to become my favourite event.

Thanks so much for stopping by my page! I was excited to find your book on your other blog and will come back to read it when I get a chance. You might also like my second blog as you've done some travelling.

It's very nice to meet you...

Good morning Sylvia, I'm getting here a bit earlier than last week. :-)

Love the mosaic. All wonderful shadows and that photo of your shadow is fantastic. A self-shadow portrait.

Have a fun week seeking shadows.
