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 link under the blog title and sign up to play!! Oh, yes! More rain!! So, back to the photo files! Hope everyone has had a great week and wishing you an even better weekend. Stay warm, and dry and find lots of reasons to laugh and to smile!!

 As you can probably tell from the photo top right, I've found some photo software to play with. Hopefully, I'll actually learn how to make the most of it, but it has been fun!

Great shadowy collage, Sylvia. The lamp is my favorite of this set. I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

DawnTreader said...

I like those coloured shadows...

Ralph said...

Your living quarters are lovely, as always in substance and shadow. The top right photo is perfect for a Christmas holiday card, the shadow inside the living room a perfect card for the season. Always nice shadows!

Looks like we might get a reprieve from the rain this morning. I'm plannig to get out for a walk before the Seahawks game this afternoon. Love the colored glass shadows!

Dianne said...

I always love the color shadows
and I really love the lamp shade
it's like frosty lace plus nice effects

Thank you for visiting! Your collection in this collage is very nice. I love the coloured bottles.

Miss Becky said...

Wow Sylvia, you've got some great shadows here. I think the top left is my fave. And getting creative with editing software is a blast. Have fun! Happy SSS!

Martha Z said...

You reached into your archive as did I. You'd feel right at home here in the central valley, we are well into our normal six to eight weeks of low clouds and fog.
I love my editing software (elements). Sometimes it is just a little tweeking of the contrast and crop and sometimes I play with artistic effects and overlays like you used here.

Lovely shots! Good luck with the editing software - I've yet to get to grips with ours ;-)

Elizabeth said...

What wonderful --and successful experiments, Sylvia.
So glad I stopped by today.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hi Sylvia - of course the coloured bottles are my favourite!! It has been snowing again - I am thoroughly fed up with it!! Regards Anne

nsiyer said...

Sylvia, you seem to be experimenting. That is because you look at life with brightness. Remember, when it is completely dark, there is no shadow.

Crafty Green Poet said...

lovely selection of shadows! I particularly like the cafetiere!

Tom Hilton said...

Another excellent set--I especially love the table with the colored shadows. Have a great weekend, Sylvia!

EG Wow said...

I think you'll enjoy the software, Sylvia! I love your shadows again this week.

Sylvia I think I have forgotten to say how much I like your header pictures, your friend is very creative ! .. I am in love with the coloured glass reflections of course : ) and that lampshade has really grabbed me as well (I need a new one for the living room and yo have reminded me of it !)
Joy : : )

Woody said...

The coffee press shadow is pretty cool and I like the lampshade shadow too!

Shirley said...

Terrific collage, Sylvia. I really like the photo you manipulated with the new software. Do you mind, what program did you use?

Catherine said...

lovely selection - I especially like the one of the coloured glass on the table cloth.......

Cassie said...

The ShadowShot in the lower left is very interesting Sylvia. I'm still not sure how you did that!
Happy SSS to you.

Cassie said...

ps-Your buddy in India sure does gift you with very cool pictures too~~~They remind me of (more)intricate etch-a-sketch drawings.

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

Great shots Sylvia. I always love your Shadow Shot collages.

Christine said...

Very clever shadow shots, Sylvia. Have a wonderful, if cold, weekend!

You've outdone yourself, Sylvia. These are utterly gorgeous. I so love the white lampshade and shadows. Makes me want to curl up and read a book right there.

Beautiful shots Sylvia and I love how you have done your page with the snowflakes and header. Your friend is sure one talented person.

I love playing with my photos but really do not know much about editing yet. Yours are great and I love your collage.

Hey Harriet said...

These are so pretty! And I love what you did with the top right hand corner photo! Very creative! Enjoy your week ahead Sylvia :)

Kelly said...

I can usually pick a favorite from your shots, but this week I can't. I do have it narrowed down to three!

You keep yourself very busy with your camera to be sure. I like the collage of shadows, I especially like the lampshade!!

Team G Square said...

great shot and amazing collage .

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

The queen of creative photography reigns again.

I found some photography classes that are promising, don't require an SLR camera, and involve field trips. So I'm pretty excited.

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

Great choices Sylvia! I'm always fascinated by the colored ones :) Hope you're having a nice Sunday!

Clara said...

What lovely shadows! I really love the shadows of the glass vases and their beautiful colors! Thanks for visiting me.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Ahhh ha! I spy that Christmas cactus Sylvia :) Love those large shadows of your colored glass...they take up that entire table ~ what fun! Hope you are having a lovely start to the New Year! See you next week!

Sweet Repose-Junk Revival said...

Boy am I late stopping by, but when one has the opportunity to go antiquing, one must fly out the door before the 2-4 inches predicted arrives...that's the way it works...right!!!

Have a great week Sylvia!!!

George said...

Have fun with your new software. Your shadow mosaic is as beautiful as ever.

Jazzbumpa said...

Back to the files, indeed.

Mine is from April, '09.

Thanks for the visit.

Cheers!

I like you lace-framed photo! I have a couple of progams like that, but it's hard to sit down and learn something new.

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.
