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!!  I think all the paper work for my new apartment has been taken care of -- the older you get the more papers you have fill out!  Anyway, I'm hoping next weekend will find me in my new home!! Still gray, rainy and cold and the hunt for shadows has become even more challenging! But here we go for today! Have a great weekend everyone!
 When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

Interesting. If you see carefully, the shadow of the dog looks like a fairy's shadow!

frayedattheedge said...

Another interesting collage - and yes, predictably, the coloured glass is my favourite!

Ralph said...

The Pacific Northwest looks like spring with green grass and shadowy foliage on the way. The photo artist looks ready for seasonal bliss as she surveys the land looking for unique lighting captures. Nice homestead!

I envy your green grass, Sylvia! It's still brown here. I bet you cannot wait to get settled in your new home.

Love the Einstein quote, how true it is when you're in love...look at all the grass and leaves coming out, we're still a bit cool here, but it was 67 today, so it's coming!

Have a great weekend Sylvia and enjoy the coming Spring...I'll be cleaning poop...I mean compost...ha!

A lovely collection of shadow contrasts! Especially love the strong shadow lines of the deck palings and Sam's shadow is just adorable!

Have a wonderful weekend Sylvia!

Marilyn said...

You never disappoint with your shadow shots - I look forward to seeing them each week. As always, I love your coloured glass. You say that it is grey, cold and wet but these shadow photos don't show it.
Best wishes for your move to your new appartment and I hope your weekend is going well.

Sylvia, How do you keep up with everything--you are remarkable. I love your shadow collage--all of the pics are great. Two outstanding quotes too. Hope you enjoyed the first half of the weekend, and that the second half is even better. Take care. Mickie

Hey Harriet said...

Haha! Love that Einstein quote! And another gorgeous collection of shadow shots! All the best with your move this week Sylvia. How exciting! Well, not the move itself, but exciting to be settling into a new place :)

Al said...

Great weekend shadows here, Sylvia. I love the patterns of the deck on the grass. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

cat said...

Hi, Sylvia - thanks for commenting on my shadow shots. I really like yours, especially the angles of the deck railing on the green, green grass :)

Good luck with your move! I do know what a hassle it is - we'll have a container to empty in a week or two and our stuff from Casa will come one day...Our move is loooong. :)
Have a good week ahead!

Paula Scott said...

Whoa!!! That one in the middle really made me do a double and triple take! What an awesome 'effect'! I know it several glass pieces in the window, but the shadows and reflections are off the charts! Wishing you a day full of sunshine and happiness!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Love the one on the deck. Allof your collage is very interesting.

Spadoman said...

Nice work Ms. K... I really like the round circle the tree casts a lot. The deck shadows are also rich. They are all nice!

Peace.

Patti said...

I love the Einstein quote! Relativity for sure. ;-)

Your collage is beautiful. The one in the center with the colored glass and reflected flowers is stunning.

I hope you have a peaceful Sunday, Sylvia.
All the best on your upcoming move. That's not easy, I know. Take care.

Joan said...

Lovely shadows Sylvia.
Have fun with the move. Alot of work, but I think it's always fun to organize in the new place. We sometimes see our things in a different light. :)

Kelly said...

I really like that shady spot in the lower right corner!
:)

Ms. Burrito said...

So pretty!

Would you please drop by and see my shadows? Would love to see you!

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Hi Sylvia, oh so pretty! I was going to choose the deck shadows, and then I spotted what you have done with the wineglass ... at first it doesn't even look like a shadow. Beautiful.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Glad to know that you have been to the Alamo too.
