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 has been a summery week for the most part, still very mild temps -- which I love! And we've had lots of lovely skies and sunshine! I've tried to focus on the beauty -- as always, so much more fun than politics, politicians and the economy!! And here are some of the fun shadows I found -- the doggies, lovely trees on my street, the park at Bellevue and one of the displays at the arts festival!
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

Another lovely collage! The colorful display at the arts festival really caught my eye. I would be nice to buy one of those glass pieces.

The quote you shared is so true. When I smile I feel better, and I guess that leads to joy!
Have a great weekend, Sylvia.

*It would be nice, I meant to say!

The dogs, both inside and out, appreciate the warm sun filtering down over them. Naturally, canine shadows are quite cool...

The sun may be a rare occurrence in SeaTac. Happily, you are ready for any sun and shadow, and all nicely captured always. Nice!

I'm glad summer has finally arrived in Seattle so that you could take such great shadow shots. YAY sun!

A lovely collection of shadow shots. Perhaps if we smiled more, the world could be a better place!

I hope that the sunshine and warmer temps stay around in the PNW for a while! Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the weekend.

I like those cool shadows on the grass. Summer has finally caught up with us in the central valley, time again to retreat to the mountains.

Annabella said...

What a great quote - so true but difficult to remember sometimes...beautiful shadows and love the one of your dog in the bedroom as well as the dappled tree shadows. Have a wonderful weekend Sylvia!

The shadow-laced lawn is my favorite but pups make great shadows and generate big smiles of joy... Hope that you have a lovely weekend, mon amie!

Bises,

What verdant greens, a sure sign of summer. Glad it's finally arrived to you (some people are already talking fall, for pete's sake!). The doggies give us shadows and big smiles. You too keep smiling, Sylvia!

The Queen of Shadows strikes again. I love mojo, the shady streets and everything. Great shots as usual Sylvia.

The tree shadows on that vast expanse of green look so cool and inviting. Mind if I sit and rest my weary body for a while?

IF SHADOWS

If shadows could jump,
How high would they go?
As high as the moon?
Does anyone know?

If shadows could weep,
How long would they cry?
As long as it takes
To climb to the sky?

If shadows could laugh
And tell funny jokes
Would you take them home
And say, “Get this, folks!”?

If shadows could wed,
Would they prefer you
Or somebody else
To promise, “I do”?

Ah! The 'dog days' of summer! I love that quote too-so very true. One of those, "I wish I could remember it all the time" kinds of quotes.
Thanks for the lift!

Sylvia, Loved the shadows and the one liner at the end. Have a great week end. Tomorrow is our Independence Day.

Needless to say, I loved the photos and the quotes..! Would love to rephrase like ....
"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but most of the times your smile can be the source of your joy."

How I would have loved to attend the art festival with you. And......oh so very green is your park. Color me jealous. Bud and I just got back from walking for the morning and everything, sadly, is so brown, it's more like walking with winter kill instead of mid summer. Love poochy photos too.

What Can I Say?

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.
