Get out the magnifying glass, get into your best sleuthing clothes and start prowling your environment looking for those wonderful, but sometimes elusive shadows.

 We're actually having a few lovely days after nearly a week of nothing but rain! I had almost forgotten that sunshine could be so beautiful!  Yes! I exaggerate, but you get the picture!  Wishing you all a lovely weekend! Enjoy!

I'm so in the mood for all those colorful shadows this morning. Thank you, Sylvia!

SHADOWY DELIGHT

Shadows above me, shadows below,
Shadows beside me, wherever I go;

Shadows each morning, shadows at night—
Shadows, O shadows, you’re my delight!

Never mind the shadows, I now pay more attention to your wonderful headers!! And of course I love the coloured glass!

lizziviggi said...

They are all beautiful shots! I agree about the sunshine-- I was positively giddy yesterday. Today is grey again, but my solar cells are filled up for a while!

Martha Z said...

It's nice to see shadows, that means the sun is shinning. Warm, lovely sun. I'm not complaining thought, not really, I'd rather have the fog than the wind of the San Fernando Valley.

ladyfi said...

Oh, I totally understand you. After a couple of weeks of no sun and just grey clouds, you really appreciate the sun!

Delicious shots!

I love the division of the first picture into three by the light, shadows and leaves. And the last one is so colourful-beautiful!

Dianne said...

The coloured glass is quite magical - ever so pretty!
Enjoy your weekend Sylvia and take care. xx

Genie said...

Fabulous shadow shots...and the colored one is unbelievable. I have never thought about getting a shadow in color. I only think of them as being in black and white. Like your wall....it is the best. I am grinning from ear to ear. Hope you have a nice week without toooo much rain. genie

Where is my shadow,
I can't find her anywhere,
I'm lonely without her.

If the lighting's right,
and I am out in the yard,
I bet she’ll be there.

That will make me smile,
My loneliness will then end,
I'll be with my friend.

Arti said...

Happy weekend to you too Sylvia -- that plant makes beautiful shadows.

I'm glad you liked my balloon post and I posted some more pictures of that festival today (wanted to put the longer post on Skywatch, but we had a very slow connection on Thursday and I couldn't get it to load).

Sridharan said...

Gillian Olson said...

Love the vases in reflection.

I still find it fascinating that colored glass casts colored shadows.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - what a nice set of images - I like the light through the coloured glasses.

I hope next week is less hectic than the last - at least I should be able to keep up with my replies this time!

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Camus was a dingus. If my life was the sum of all my choices (read: mistakes) it would be considered a wash! I like to think of my life as where I am now and the grace that has been afforded me ~ mistakes forgiven!! (Was into Camus as a youth...no more.) ANywhooo, love your colorful glass reflections & shadows. Happy SSS!!!

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.
