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!!

It's been a fun week getting to spend time with my oldest son who is visiting his brother and I. And I took another trip to a very different and unusual place which I will be featuring on That's My World, but the two photos on the right were taken there.The first pic has more tree shadows from across the street, then shadows in my office, a shot taken at the Tea Room where I had a fantastic lunch the day of the trip and the last one is of very happy ducks in a pond near the restaurant. Fun day!! 

The power of imagination makes us infinite.

Seattle's best scenes arrive with a maybe rare sunny day. Sot it is captured well, with flowers and sucks the highlights. It is rewarding when the far flung family members are together, even if only for a little while. Things seem a bit more complete then...

Happy July 4!

My imagination is running wild as I look at your basket, waiting to be filled with more and more. What a trove of treasures it could hold!


SHADOW, BE TRUE

My shadow has come out to play.
Oh, shadow, please don’t run away!
Stay here by my side,
Pretend you’re my bride—
Be true to me now and alway!

Lawstude said...

i agree. the power of imagination is infinite.

however, it can be dangerous too like what my boss said to one of my officemates. my boss said use facts more often and imagination less so that we could have a stronger case lol.

Ann said...

was that 12050 or 2050 post? I just found that one of my blogs had 1111 posts.

anna maria said...

I'm drawn to the one with the tree and its shadow, maybe because it is so hot lately that I am always looking for shade to walk in!

Kathe W. said...

nice shadow shots- especially the basket shot....very peaceful.

nsiyer said...

Graet imagination and nice quote. Taking our insights even further.

Kelly said...

I was so focused on the greenhead in the middle of the water photo that I almost missed the duck eating in the right corner. Bottoms up! :)

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.
