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!! A little sun, not much, but enough to build hopes as we wait breathlessly for spring and glorious sunshine!!

A hush is over everything, Silent as women wait for love; The world is waiting for the spring.

Your home has a great sense of style in subject. Likewise, the shadows add even more depth to this stylish abode. Sun near Seattle - something to savor!

I love the PNW, Sylvia, and lived in BC for ten years... but you remind me why I prefer to be on this side of the Pacific Ocean: the SUN! :-D

Your poinsettias remind me of the ones I saw in Guadalajara. Lucky ones--they don't have to grow in pots, but in the ground year 'round!

A PARFAIT DAY

A seeker of shadows one day
Did trip as she went on her way;
She picked herself up
And dipped from a cup
Of shadowy lemon parfait!

Listening Shadows

Cassie said...

Wow, I can "hear the hush" in your ShadowShots today!! Very nice, as usual. Have a great weekend.

EG Wow said...

Your shot in the bottom left-hand corner is a stunner, Sylvia!

Ann said...

I should have read your post before I did my photohunt post. It was on shadows, and I didn't have many shadow photos.

Did you ever play the "catch your shadow" game when you were young? We did it in Borneo.

Greyscale Territory said...

A great picture pile of colour and shadow! Especially love the bold shadow patterns on the wooden boards!

The shadows intersecting with the lines of the boards really captures my eye (love the lines).

Enjoy your weekend!

Arija said...

I do love the many layered shadows on your deck and all the others.

Thank you for thinking of me, even a one day holiday makes a difference.

I wish you a sunny weekend.

Sylvia, thankyou for stopping by my shadow of Matthew Flinders and for your encouraging comment. Your collage is warm and welcoming, and I get the sense that you're looking forward to Spring! I like your kitchen shot with the hint of blue sky.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

You are again the Queen of Shadows (in a good way). I like the cross hatch shadows a lot.

I hope that you are having a good weekend. I got a little geocaching in as I had some time for myself and got to see some newborn lambs later in the day.

I love all your photos, but especially the turtle and that deck railing shot. What is there about the symmetry of the ballisters? Good stuff Sylvia K.

Peace.

Drooling the sun shone on your home, Lady S. Lovely ambiance and after awhile didn't see you, I can see that you're going so good in photo tiles, huh?

Great job as always,

Nice mosiac, Sylvia. I'm going to do my first one sometime this week. Yay!

Kelly said...

I like the crisscrosses of the shadows on the decking in the lower left photo. My kind of shadows!

forgetmenot said...

Sylvia, I love your "collection" of shots--what a good deal! Five in One!!!!! All of them are lovely--I think the turtle stole the most hearts. My "shadow" picture was taken at Wichita Botanical Gardens and, you are right, there are a ton of lovely little spots with benches to just sit and enjoy a beautiful day. Thank you for your sweet comments--it's always nice to see your name come up on my blog. Mickie

Ruthi said...
