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!
We're enjoying some lovely, sunny weather -- don't know for how long, but I'll take what I can get! I've also discovered something with the new Blogger -- I can post BIG photos! So while they run a little over the usual boundary, I think they're more fun to look at! So, I hurried down to the Bird Sanctuary and found some friends of mine enjoying the day!


And, of course, some colored pieces!



 Ah, don't we have fun, with new toys to play with!!

EG Wow said...

I don't don't know how you always find so many great shots every week!

Kay L. Davies said...

Yes, Sylvia, the last shot is lovely, but I can't resist anything with a bird or animal in it, so I'm for the logful of ducks.

Ok, now I have to name you the queen of colored glass reflection shadow shots. They look great!

Ralph said...

I have never considered a quartet of quackers as a team in a log rolling contest - until now! The green candle holder/vase os especially nice in shape and shadow!

Diane AZ said...

I love all of these, Sylvia! The colored shadows and green glass shadow on the white cloth are awesome. :-)

Janie said...

Your duck friends are very obliging, providing their shadows and reflections.
The colored glass makes beautiful shadows.

Sam said...

Oh! That last shot is grogeous - it looks like a cathedral!! I also have a drying rack exactly like that - it makes great shadows!

Emily | Miss Fickle said...

Great shots!
I especially like the last one.

Cassie said...

Gorgeous as usual. Colored glass being my fave.I even recognized the teak dish rack, but not the unusual shadow it left. Happy SSS to you Syl!

Ashley Sisk said...

mountain.mama said...

I like that last shot too, very nice.

Jo Williams Photography said...

Very nice Sylvia, really like the colour shadows the best, so pretty.

Hey Harriet said...

That last one is a stunner but my fave is the ducks! I think we could replace that log that they're on with a surfboard and watch them ride some waves! Can't you just imagine them in little duckie wetsuits? :D

Enjoy the rest of your weekend Sylvia!

I see you have your ducks in a row too...ahhh, the sunshine, we have it today, but quite cold outside, we may even see frost...I don't like this time of year, no birds singing today...silence!
