Wonderful sunny shots. Love the blue glass!

Ralph said...

The dumb snow last week has finished up what autumn color was there. So we look to alternate shadows, outside - and in. Nice abode, the shadows in color, as always, are nice!

I see the shadowy contents of the basket, although I'm not quite sure what they are. Maybe I should brave the shadows, put my hand into the basket, and find out!

SHADOW, WILL YOU?

Shadow, will you always be
Here where I can always see
What you do and how you play?
Or will you just slip away?

«Louis» always enjoys the shots you get of light through glassware. These images always remind him of stained glass.

You certainly have a sharp eye for a shadow!

Exquisite contrast of shadows! Stunning depth of blue shadow from the blue bottle and wine glass!

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

Beautiful shadow shots Sylvia, love them all, but my fav is the blue glass.

Jack said...

Pretty shadow shots, Sylvia. I especially like the cobalt blue goblets. Light running through rich blue glass goes straight through me.

Tracy said...

Ahhh, what lovely blue glass...reminds me of a window my Grandma had in her house...we'd stand in front of it and see the world through colored glass.

Patti said...

The colored glass is so pretty, as always. (your trademark)

And those lazy Susans are spectacular.

Enjoy the weekend, Sylvia!

LV said...

Fall certainly cast you some lovely shadows today.

Splendid Little Stars said...

amazing blue shadows! One can dream of sun and reflect on past photos when it's dark and dreary outside. These photos are so cheerful!

Eden said...

Fantastic shadow shots. My favourite is the second one.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love the Ben Franklin quote!
it must be true.
Also LOVE your beautiful blue shadow.
Hope all is well with you Sylvia. Sorry I haven't been around in awhile. I'm renovating part of my house & fell behind in my blogging life.
: )

Lawstude said...

I love the first pic with the blue shadows. I always thought that shadows are black only but the bright lights illuminates through the bottle to have that awesome shadow.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love all of these -- I hope you took the red basket and the colored glassware with you to your new home!

Also I'm lifting my glass to you and to Ben Franklin for his great quote ;>)

Arti said...

The last shot is my favorite though the second one with deep blue color is equally enchanting.
Have a nice day Sylvia:)

Genie said...

All of your pictures are lovely but that last one is a knock out with all of its vibrant color. Like all of the quotes...especially the one about the vino. It is great. genie

Your banners are getting funnier and funnier and even more creative!
I know I'm a wee bit tardy in making the SSS rounds, but it's always a joy to stop by here. The blue glass makes me think of my mother. She had a penchant for that.

Those are brilliant shadows, Sylvia. Great lighting too! Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the week. It's finally gotten a bit colder here...maybe autumn has finally arrived!?
