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!!

I was seriously in need of some humor this weekend, so when I started choosing my quotes for the day, I was looking for a giggle or two. And guess what? I found some. Hope you get a giggle, too!  Enjoy your weekend and the beginning of Fall!

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity. Albert Einstein

The reason there are two senators for each state is so that one can be the designated driver. Jay Leno

Your new abode is lovely, the interior beautiful. The potted plant is cool, and visible from below - a decoration all then can enjoy. The picture on the wall is framed nicely by all the shadows. And the red vase is as colorful in shadow as it it in subject. All quite nice!

Patti said...

Nice homey shadows.

I can tell yoy have a much greener thumb than I, Sylvia! But I keep trying.

Love the quotes you added to the photos. What fun!

Your new header is fabulous, Sylvia, and so is your shot of the wheat grass (or whatever it is on your windowsill)!

SHADOW BOLD

Shadow bold and shadow bright,
Shadow with me day and night,
Shadow taller than a tree,
Tell me what you think of me!

Dianne said...

Great shadow shots - I must go on the prowl looking for shadows - I'm a reflection nut but forget about shadows!! That will be my challenge for next week.
Have a wonderful week-end Sylvia.

What? You didn't post the photo of the (ahem) "polio weed" plant you've been growing in the window sill?

I love all your shadow shots Ms. Sylvia. And the sayings made me laugh. Relativity indeed!
Is that wheatgrass? Do you cut it and juice it? It looks like that stuff you see in the juice bar. Folks order a shot and add to their drink.
It makes a great shadow shot, no matter what it is.

Peace

Those quotes did put a smile on my face. I especially like the last one. Great shots as usual Sylvia. Your new home really looks lovely. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the beginning of fall...we're heading into another mini heat wave here in NorCal.

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.
