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 some sun this week, not much, but better than none at all!!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend with lots of sun and shadows!
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Buddha
We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand.
E. M. Forster
I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.

The shadowy lamp...is it asking me to turn it on so that some mysterious dark light can shine...or is it content to fade away as day becomes night?

SHADOWY DINNER

A shadow, a shadow, a shadow you say?
A shadow is coming to dinner today?

Oh, what shall we feed it, and what will it eat?
Just toss down a few rays of light at its feet,

And watch its dark mouth gobble up every ray,
But be sure, my friend, you don’t get in its way;

Keep out of the light so it won’t gobble you.
(If I were the hostess, that’s just what I’d do.)

A shadow is easy to feed, so they say,
So welcome your shadow to dinner today.

Shadows here and there

Love the lacy shadows of curtains, I suspect. The amber color in the room is gorgeous.

Looks like you got some sunshine for a change, Sylvia!

Enjoy the weekend.

Excellent framing a beautiful play of light and shadows, very attractive. I wish you a happy weekend.

Arija said...

Sylvia, these are so beautiful. The tree casts a curtain over the house and then you bring the shadows of the curtains and walk down the passage on them. Very clever arrangement indeed. The sequence works perfectly.

I wish you lots more sunny days withe delightful shadows.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

look at that huge shadow of the tree...pretty!! Love your other two as well Sylvia - Shadows in the house are always fun to spot! The sun has been out this week, so we are taking advantage to outdoor shadows of late!! Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful shadows! Please come see my Shadow shots

cieldequimper said...

Hello Sylvia! I love those inside shadows, cosy and yet the outside beckoning!

Spadoman said...

Sylvia, I love all three of these photos, but especially love the tree on the hopuse. It is an awesome shot, and from a great angle. Hope all is good with you dear freind.

Peace

Jack said...

Very nice shadows, Sylvia. Isn't interesting what attracts us? I like doing reflections for Friday's Weekend Reflections and you like doing shadows and skies.

EG Wow said...

Oh my gosh! I LOVE that Plutarch quote! :) These are very nice shadow shots too!

A Wild Thing@Sweet Repose said...

Hey Sylvia, it's good to have time to blog, too wet to plow, so I'm having a cup of tea in front of the PC. The sun still isn't out, but I hear a better forecast for tomorrow, we need the heat and the sun!

Yeah, a bummer about our playlists, but my blog sure loads faster now..hope you get some sunshine too...good for the soul!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Gorgeous indoor and outdoor shadows! Love the warm wall glow round the lamp and the outdoor wall shadow is very pretty!

lotusleaf said...

Beauty in shadows! I liked the first picture a lot.

MyMaracas said...

What wonderful quotations. And I love that second photo. It could almost be a painting. So lovely.

forgetmenot said...

Sylvia, Lovely, unique shadows--the reflection's post before is lovely too-beautiful with those boats out on the water-- and magnificent skies. Great quotes (don't I say that everytime!!!). Have a lovely Sunday. :) Mickie

magiceye said...

mississippi artist said...

Wonderful shadow shots this week! Love tree and leaf shadows!

Kelly said...

My favorite is that top photo with the big tree shadow on the house. I can just imagine standing in that house by the window as the wind stirs those shadows around!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Sylvia girl ! I love that saying from Buddha : ) and your shadow pictures are perfect .. my favorite is the middle one with the warm glow of the room and that beautiful lamp !
And .. I would never mention any beloved pets belly .. my girls have a little paunch as well .. too loved up at times ? LOL

Molly said...

Love your shadows and the wise words that go with them

Beverley Baird said...

What lovely shadow shots! Especially loved the effect of the tree's shadow in the first shot.
Have a wonderful week ahead!

NatureFootstep said...

I love the last shot with the shadow on the floor. It is gorgeous.

Wren said...

I like the contrast between indoor and outdoor shadows. The inside ones seem to set a mood, and give an air of mystery or gravity to the photos that doesn't come across in the bright sunny outdoors.

Paula Scott said...

A stellar series of images and quotes to go with it! You've outdone yourself this week, m'dear!!
Brava!
