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!!

As many of you know, I've been pretty much house bound due to sun poison, but it is much improved. Even so I haven't gotten out a lot as I do want it to heal and go away!! A real pain in the whatever!!  So, I dug up some older shadow shots, hope you enjoy them!  For those of you in the States -- have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and may all of you enjoy a beautiful one!

Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.

Sun poisoning? Ugh!! That pretty much goes with the severe case of bursitis in my shoulder! Put me out of commission for a spell here. I hope you've recovered enough to enjoy this long weekend. Don't forget your hat!!!

Ralph said...

Do get well! We often think of Seattle and rain. But of course, you have provided lots of sunny exposure pictures this summer, so perhaps it was sunnier in clime up there. Nevertheless, your archives show lots of shadows, my favorite the wet doggie. Your archives are lovely, too...

I hope that you get better soon. Sun poison sounds serious.

Your masthead this week is too cute. What a clever friend you have in Mubai.

The lacy ShadowShot is my fave today. Though the one of your son with his pooch is cool too. Ahh heck, they are all good! Happy Labor Day and SSS Sylvia!!

Patti said...

Love the photo of your son playing with his dog.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!

Delightful collage Sylvia.

I finally looked it up on the web. I had never heard of it before. Here we cover up automatically (long non-transparent) sleeves and hat. I do wish you a speedy recovery.

Looks like a Chesapeake Bay retriever having a great summer's day...but alas, I'll be doing the traditional Sunday dinner of fried chicken...nuff said!

Have a great holiday Sylvia!

I'd never heard of sun poison and had to look it up. It sounds nasty - take care and get well soon.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Sylvia girl I have never heard of "sun poison" now I have to look that up on the net ! I hope you are feeling better : )
We Canadians also have Labor Day long weekend .. I am bumping into a lot of people who think it is only the States that do that .. seems funny that yet again Canada is out in the "cold" ? LOL
I keep loving your friend's art work on the header picture and my favourite shadow is the bottom right hand corner .. beautiful!

Hope you feel better SOON!
Very pretty photos. Looks like she wants to chase the ball into the water again. :)

I hope you are feeling better, that is serious! Lovely shots, especially the first one.

Genie said...

I may be 72, but I can remember vividly the time I got sun poisoning as a teenager in south Florida. It was the worst. I was sosososo sick. Hope you feel better soon. I have been down and out for 2 weeks with torn cartilage in my right knee. The laptop put too much pressure on the knee and sitting at the computer table was painful, too. Consequently I have been out of commission for what seems like ages. Glad you were able to hit your saved photos from days past because they have created a grand mosaic. Love the shot with the dog. Take care and fell better soon. genie

Eden said...

I'm so sorry about the sun poisoning -- that is a real bummer. You do have the best photo archives of anyone in the world -- your old photos are wonderful to look at and thank you for sharing.

Get well soon!

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.
