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!

The sun has come and gone, returned and left again, but I found a few shadows! There was a really tall, long-legged broad hanging around for whatever reason. With Fall approaching there is a shifting of the places in the house where the sun shines, I found colored shadows on the floor and on the walls, some watery looking ones and a real watery one from the Sanctuary. I do have fun playing with the collage! And you can see the pics better by clicking on them to embiggen them!



Have a terrific weekend everybody!

The colors are so wonderful, the faint shadows of hue are elegant. You do get the occasional sun in the Pacific Northwest, and you are quite ready for SSS. Always a nice collage!

Catherine said...

another artistic collage this week - my favourite is the glasses on the table..

Reader Wil said...

This is also a nice meme! I wish I could do all the memes, but that is too time consuming! The shadows and shades are fascinating, Sylvia! Especially the one with the long legs!!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I agree with Catherine, I love the glasses on the table. In my house, that "tall, long-legged broad" you mentioned would be running around saying, "Where are my glasses? Has anyone seen my glasses?"
Beautiful collage.

Great collection of shadows. I think the eyeglasses shadow is my favorite, although the colored glass shadows...and the chaise lounge shadow...and the mysterious stranger...heck, they're all good. :-)

Have a great weekend!

I love your collages. They are like dreams of light. I always love your colored glass images, Sylvia. Your shadow shots take me to a special place.

MyMaracas said...

Beautiful shots, all of them. I love their dreamlike quality.

Hope you have a happy holiday!

George said...

I like the collage you've made of your shadow shots. I can't help but wonder how tall that 'long-legged broad' really is. The shadow of the glasses is beautiful.

Beverley Baird said...

A great collage of shadows as usual! Love the glasses as well!
have a wonderful weekend!

EG Wow said...

I knew I could count on you to find some shadows, Sylvia!

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

Love the pics and your sense of humor. I would hardly call you a broad, you much too classy for that.

Take care & God bless.

Naturedigital said...

I love the way you are doing the collage now. The shot of your glasses and the book is awesome

Linnea W said...

These are all great shadow shots. I love how you combined them in the collage. I think it's fun to notice the changing shadows with the changing seasons, too! Hope you find lots of shadows this week.

Hey Harriet said...

A lovely & diverse display of shadows this week. A fun collage! I hope you enjoy your long weekend Sylvia :)

wanderlust said...

Collage, how fun! Love the eyeglasses!

Spadoman said...

Good to be back here Sylvia, it's been a while. I haven't participated in SSS for a while. I missed you.
I like the reading glasses photo. Even the glass makes a shadow. Might that "tall broad" be you?
Good fun stuff!


Peace.

Sylvia girl that was a very clever college ! I always wonder about that spelling .. in any case .. the ones that jumped out at me the most were the eye glasses and wooden floor ..I love the way wood looks and the glasses have a nice sharp outline : ) Happy SSS

cool collage!

Joan said...

Love the eyeglasses. Your collage is always fun to look at.

imaginationlane said...

Beautiful shadows as always, Sylvia, some of them quite mysterious! I do like the book and glasses...:)

Shirley said...

Sylvia, beautiful shots. I paid a visit to your other blog, the novel, and enjoyed what I have read thus far. Thanks for visiting my blog "The Gardening Life". I too am in the process of writing a novel via a blog, though I haven't gotten very far. You may take a look at http://therecameadream.blogspot.com/. I need to spend some time on character development so it is very much a rough draft. Let me know what you think, from one writer/teacher to another.

frayedattheedge said...

Super photos - I enlarged them to see what you were reading, but I still couldn't see!! Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend .... I'm late commenting, as I was away all day yesterday at a quilt show (I did my post in advance and Malcolm popped me into Mr Linky!)

Buy Design said...

Like so many others I like the one with the book and the glasses. Thanks for your comment. I think I'm getting the hang of shadow chasing now.

Hello, my long-legged, small headed twin! How funny! I love your photos and the cool collage... I need to learn how to do that. Take care.

Nice collage. I guess I prefer each pic on its own, though.

Cheers!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
