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!!  We've had sun for two days and I'm afraid to look at the weather report for the next two!! My problem now is not having a car anymore, therefore most of the stuff around the house you've seen, but we change a few things, add a few things .....  So, wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day -- tomorrow!!

As always, I am drawn to the glassware and stemware in color shadows. THe sun is inching north, so in WA you are able to capture sunny artistry about yur beautiful home. Neat!

Miss Becky said...

The colored shadows from your vases are really pretty!

frayedattheedge said...

Yes - has to be the coloured glass - always my favourite of your shadow shots!

Al said...

Nicely done as always, Sylvia. My favorite is the upper-left one - somehow the plant shadow looks tropical to me, even though I know it's not. Have a wonderful weekend!

Awesome set of shadow shots.

My shadows, enjoy your weekend!

Alissa Nicolau said...

I like the shadows cast by your plant. My mother has one of those, the name escapes me...

blogitse said...

Don't worry, just move a couple of things around the house and you'll have new shadows every time :)
Have a good Sunday, week ahead!

Hi Sylvia,

I love the lamp shadow on the wall. It reminds me of the lamps that I have. I love your collages! I've been looking over yesterday's posts too, and they are all breathtaking. Also, I really enjoy your quotes. Thank you so much for sharing everything with us.

God bless and have a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend.

Beverley Baird said...

What a great assortment of shadows. The bottom coloured glass shadows mix with the darker ones for a lovely effect!
have a wonderful weekend Sylvia and Happy Valentine's Day!

Grayquill said...

Okay - there is a slight problem and I not real sure where the problem lies. One of us doesn't know what day it is. I woke and thought it was Saturday but now I see it is Shadow Sunday and that means I missed Church again. Oh...bother. :-) Sorry! sometimes I think I am funny. But, I guess I should know better by now becuause my kids have told many times, "Dad you are not funny! You are the only one laughting."

Christine said...

I love it when you do collages, Sylvia. This one is very sweet - and shadowy! Have a wonderful weekend!

A very nice collection and collages:)

Lovely shadow collage you have made!
Have a nice sunday!

Martha Z said...

I thought of you yesterday while shopping at Jo-Ann's. They had some colorful vases and plates, should I get some? No, I'll leave those shadows for Sylvia and find my own unique type of shadow.

mississippi artist said...

Beautiful shadow shots. I love the cactus on the wall.

Spadoman said...

Well dear Sylvia, another beautiful arrangement of shadows. Hoe strong some of them are, and as usual, i am partial to the colored glass shadows.
Very nice.

Peace

Tracy said...

Sylvia,
very pretty...the colored glass is most stunning. It reminded me of the red window in my Grandmother's house 'yes, Sylvia's' The window was located upstairs and when the sun shone through it was spectacular! In addition, there was a red velvet chair beneath it :)
Thanks for making me smile with the memory from your photos!
Have a great weekend!

Emma said...

A great collage of shadow shots this week Sylvia. The coloured glass shadows are so very pretty.

Gallery Juana said...

You have some pretty backgrounds to those shadows. Have a good weekend!

Greyscale Territory said...

A beautifully arranged collage mixing coloured and dark shadows! Fascinating!

George said...

You do a wonderful job of getting neat and interesting shadows from the things around your house. I hope you're having a great weekend.

Linda Reeder said...

Batten down the hatches. No more shadows today!

Arija said...

Your collage works superbly with the dark background accentuating both the light and shadows.

Are you feeling the spring in the air, we have definite sigs of autumn although we still are in the most dangerous part of the fire season.

Have a great week my dear.

Hi Sylvia! Your Christmas cactus looks so large in that shadow!! Your shadow on your bed is quite pretty as well...your bedspread makes for a pretty background. The colored glass makes a great shot with the wineglass taking center stage :) Hope you will have a lovely week this week!!

You are always so creative in the objects you use and your compositions. Great job yet again.

Isn't it nice to have the sun out. We are having a great melt here. It is supposed to be in the 70's here by late in the week.

Boy, you talk about drenched in sunlight...I'm bathing in it as we speak...oh glorious sun!!!

My favorite this week is the grouping of colored shadows on the lower right. Beautiful!

Despite all my fears,
I hope you will not run away.”
