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!! Yep, same old, same old -- BUT! Saturday, Sunday and Monday are supposed to be sunny all day! Hopefully, I can catch something new for you guys to look at!!!

I like the green landscape ShadowSHots today. And the line from Rbt.C.Gallagher gave me my first chuckle of the day. Happy SSS.

Your colored shadows are always magical, Sylvia!

BE MY COMPANION

Come here, my shadow,
Do not delay;
Be my companion,
Show me the way;
Teach me your secrets,
Chant as we go
Of light and darkness—
Make my heart glow!

Shadows here and here

Fantastic shadow shots and lovely flowers.

MyMaracas said...

Lovely shots, as always. I especially like that second one. It makes me want to lean on my elbows, hidden in the shadows, and watch the street below.

Beautiful garden!

Can I invite you to join the meme I just launched? It is called Color Connection, you can just post anything with color of your choice. Hope you can join the fun. Thank you!

The last quote is good. I can also add 'except from a bus conductor'!

cloudbusting2 said...

Yeah, sometimes I´m lured to use a vending machine and it´s always annoying if something goes horribly wrong and there is nobody to complain!

Really uplifting small statue you have there.

Arija said...

Gorgeous! The light is so different in your new home.
Aren't rhododendrons a delight in spring?

Genie said...

Your shadow shots are beautiful, and I especially liked the first two.... but it's the photo of the dog in the lap that made me smile the most.
