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!! And another week of "iffy" weather! Some snow, lots of cold, temps in the teens and then a little lovely sunshine and blue skies! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that one of these weekends soon I'll have some new shadow shots to share with you. In the meantime, here is old grumpy Sam, sitting on the snowy deck - my most recent take!!

Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.

\Have a lovely weekend, Sylvia!

Miss Becky said...

wow Sylvia, I love the new header image. great colors. just like your shadow collage. the lacy red is my favorite. and the mysterious one with no identity, you leave me wondering what that is. love the Sandburg quote too - how appropriate. happy SSS and have a beautiful weekend Sylvia!

Patti said...

Sam is grumpy? Who knew?
;-)

Love your colored glass shadow as always, Sylvia. Enjoy the weekend.

Poor doggie, he was waiting for Spring and what happened? The snow allows for lovely shadows on the deck. I like the marina, with the blue sky it could be summer - it works all year long! Hopefully the warm sun appears (and stays) over Puget Sound!

I never could understand how dogs can sit in the snow without freezing their butts off!

SHADOW COUNTING

A shadow for one?
What fun, what fun!

A shadow for two—
In black or blue?

A shadow for three?
O my, O me!

A shadow for four?
Ah, mi amour!

A shadow for five?
Coming alive!

A shadow for six?
Light playing tricks!

I'm so glad you had SOME sun this week, Sylvia! Interesting quote by Sandburg. I've never thought of a shadow as an echo...but it kinda is!

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.
