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 really fun week -- even though I got still one more year older!!! on Thursday! My son, Adam and his dog, the beautiful Mojo, came to get Sam and I to go play at the beach, take photos and have a wonderful dinner at my favorite restaurant!! And here they are!!

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.

The Beach Dog looks completely satisfied with himself--and completely soaked!

SING A SONG OF SHADOWS

Sing a song of shadows
Taller than a tree!
Sing a song of shadows
Wider than the sea!
Sing a song of shadows
Dancing in the sun!
Sing a song of shadows—
Day is almost done!

Ah, Syvia, the reflections and shadows, though wonderful, just don't hold a candle to your and your son's beautiful smiles! And once more, a header fit for a Queen of the Hill!

Oh I can see you had a wonderful time!

Aside from food, the quickest way into a dog's heart is allowing them to romp at the beach, the soft sand and cool water the place to play! Naturally, if the dog is happy, so is the owner. Your smile is confirmation of that!

Dimple said...

Well, I must wish you a belated happy birthday, and, probably also belated, congratulations on your blog award!

Love the two portraits of you with your son in this post & the last; how wonderful it is to spend time with our children!

Ms. Becky said...

these shots are delightful. love that shot of Mojo, and you and your son too! what fantastic smiles. have a fun weekend Sylvia.

Jack said...

You are SO funny, Sylvia. That last shot, of Adam and you, is full of life and energy. (And the Branch Rickey quote is unfortunately probably true . . . I decline to report where I am along the continuum.)

chubskulit said...

Gemma Wiseman said...

The last photo is the winner! Such a radiant smile! But the first two have lovely reflections and shadows!

Like the middle one especially. The shadow looks bigger and more fierce than the actual dog!

So sorry I missed your birthday, Sylvia. From that beautiful smile, I know it was a good one! What a wonderful way to start another year!

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.
