The shadows fall over all the flora in your home. The sun is strong for SEA, and you capture every bit of available solar energy when it is there. So nice!

Never mind the shadow shots (excellent as they are) .... I am still laughing at your header (he's not a popular man over here!) and that first quote ..... I enjoyed algebra all those years ago at school - maybe I missed my calling as a remedial algebra teacher (and the office I worked in very many years ago did indeed have someone who regularly cleaned the phones!!)
Hope you are having a great weekend, Anne

Dianne said...

I love the warm light and the long shadows in the top and blottom shots
and the color in the middle is so you :)

Riet said...

All your shadow shots are perfect Sylvia.
Have a wonderful weekend

Cassie said...

Back again! That's the most traffic I've seen on Montana,Hwy2 in that area too. There was road work going on, so it piled up. Honestly, for the 3hr. trip to Kalispell there are only 2 towns where cell phones get reception!!

Catherine said...

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Such beautiful sunlight created these shadows. Great shots!

VioletSky said...

I've always like the slatted shadows from blinds.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Beautiful, mellow light in your world! The shadowy wall in the first photo could almost be the entrance to an intimate art gallery! And love all your different versions of that window ledge! Just noticed all the candles in your home! Wonderful for atmosphere!

TexWisGirl said...

your indoor shadow shots are always so good!

Tracy said...

the photos are so refreshing...I especially like the one of the book shelf :)

Sylvia,
Nowadays, a strong sense of humor is very important. With it is easier to live.

Shadow, shadow drawing near,
You are all alone, I fear;
Let me be your new-found friend—
I’ll stick with you to the end!

These are all beautiful shadows and my favourite is the second one. Love the quotes too.

Dimple said...

The shot of the bookshelves is really nice, Sylvia! The small shadows from the blinds give a settled, time to relax with a good book feel! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

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.
