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 our usual mix of rain and sun on an hourly basis, but I managed to catch a couple of pretty good shadow shots at my new place, plus some from last weeks trip to Bellevue. 


Wishing you all a very happy and fun weekend!!
In photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated.

you manage to put together the best collages each week, I do look forward to seeing them. If that's your bedroom it's lovely with those shadows across your bed. and I love the grass on the windowsill and the shadows against the wall. great quote as usual. Have a wonderful, joyful holiday weekend Sylvia!

Seattle may be full of clouds with the occasional dreary drizzle. So capturing that fleeting solar orb and the resultant shadows, being ready is so important. At your site, I can't imagine the dreary Seattle we were all taught about. Happy Memorial Day to you!

Hi Sylvia! Sorry for the absence, but the season has been too busy here in Lisbon...

Great shadows... BTW, do you remember «The Shadows»?... Ageing... ;)

Blogtrotter Two is gone to Corsica... Enjoy and have a superb weekend!!

Sylvia, I like to think that your quote applies to life as well... we can illuminate our shadows and those of our friends.

May you have a wonderful weekend, mon amie!

Bises,

I like the parted curtain, Sylvia, and the light peeping in!

I ALMOST LOST MY SHADOW

I almost lost my shadow,
I left it in the park;
I heard my mommy calling,
For it was getting dark;

She has no use for shadows,
She thinks they are quite grim,
And when she saw my shadow,
She thought it was a “him.”

I had to educate her
And tell her it was “she’
And now my faithful shadow
Is welcome as can be!

Oh Sylvia, I love that middle photo, it takes me back to my childhood, sleeping on Granny's bed with the warm breezes blowing through the lace curtains...thanks for the memories...have a safe holiday!!!

Wonderful collage of shadows and nice glimpse into your world. I'll try to illuminate shadows in my daily living. Thank you for this post, Sylvia. Have a nice weekend!

Limar said...

Hi! I really love your shadow-shots! Have a nice Sunday :)

Spadoman said...

Great shots! I like the little planter with the grass. Our local coffee shop has planted a long grass in the streetside planters. I wonder if that is her plan, to grow grass instead of flowers!!?? I love to visit you on Sundays dear Sylvia.

Peace

Kay of Musings talks about a day with no shadows at noon. Interesting. We just have days without shadows.

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.
