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!!

Ah, we had sun everywhere, everyday -- well, except one -- this week! It's been wonderful! Considering the total disasster  -- I misspelled that on purpose -- in Washington DC, we certainly needed all the sunshine we could get!  Hope all of you have a lovely weekend with lots of love and laughter and sunshine!!


A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.

Love the way you spelled disaster, Sylvia!

You've captured an especially appealing shadow on the easy chair.

Ms. Becky said...

ah, these are some fine shadows today Sylvia. I love that Twain quote. yeah, don't even get me started on the theater in Washington. wouldn't it be nice if we could just fire them all, at once?
happy SSS, and I hope you have a fun fun weekend.

Enticing shadows - and that chair looks so inviting.
Hope Washington gets its act together by the end of July - no, that's tomorrow, so impossible;-)

disasster!!:D. you've hit the nail on the head, with it.

Loved the chair shot. Its inviting :)

In these lovely shadows, we are able to forget the world, and all its problems. We see the intermittent sun and shadows falling in artistic patterns over the usual, such as the chair and deck. To look quietly at the sun created art is to forget and hopefully recharge...

A lovely collection of shadows and quotes to go with them. Hope you are having a good weekend!

What beautiful shadows, and what an inviting room. I love the bits of color peeking through.

Wanda said...

Oh they are all great, but I must say I'm partial to the basket and lace tablecloth. My kind of things.

These are all wonderful shadow shots Ms. Sylvia. I especially like the red patch in that first shot. What made it so red? Good array of shadows.

Peace

Hello Sylvia. I quite like the shadow shot over the chair. The yellow mimics the sunlight while shadows dance around it.

Fantastic shadow shots Sylvia, love them all, but I think my favourite would have to be the chair. Looks like a nice spot to sit and reflect.

Have a great week.

Mariette said...

Dearest Sylvia,

Just finished posting my TV interview and came back to your blog. You know, since you write so much and lost already big part of your work, please do export your blog. I did write a post about it and it is real easy. Each Sunday I have made it into a routine to export and save it onto my external hard drive. Here you can read the step-by-step easy directions. http://bit.ly/nHKBm5
Wishing you a great Sunday.'
Love,

Mariette

Your home looks so pretty and comfortable. Lovely shots.

Are those flames shooting out of the power point????

We had a great sunny day today too and I could get a couple of things done outside.

Have a most wonderful week!

I love the shots! I also love your misspelling. Congrass is certainly is making Washington look like the whoopie cushion of the world.

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.
