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!! More lovely, sunny days and I thought I'd show you what a difference a few days can make in the tree shadows I shared with you last week! Hope you all have a very Happy Father's Day weekend!! Enjoy!
Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.

Your window sill, no matter where you live, seems to provide you with intriguing and captivating shadows week by week!



I ONCE HAD A SHADOW

I once had a shadow—or did it have me?
My shadow and I could never agree.
I would say something, she’d say the reverse;
Our arguments flared, my lips I would purse,
Refusing to speak to her anymore—
So my shadow got up and marched out the door!
I have not seen her from that day to this—
That’s one stubborn shadow I surely don’t miss!

I like your new home - the views out are very nice! Obviously, shadows emanate from all over. The bottle, blinds and plant add a complexity yo the white wall. Happily, the shadows of glass in many colors are lovely, too. A wonderful shadowy week has passed, and we hope yours next week is as well!

Clicked on over here for reflections (very nice, by the way) and stopped to see the shadow shots. Love the tree shadow against the building.

I like the window sill shadows, and the trees against the building. that Japanese Maple is pretty fine too. great shadow shots Sylvia, and quote too. I hope you have lots of sun for your weekend!

Looks like you're at home in your new home!
We have still a lot to do. Our living room is full of boxes, stuff to go through and most of it is mine, sigh.
Have a good week ahead!

Yummy-the Japanese red maple goes very well with the red glass! I don't know how you manage a 'banner de jour', but it sure is fun to land on your blog not knowing what to expect!

What Can I Say?
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.
