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!!

No sun here lately other than a few minutes three or four times a day and then it wraps itself in clouds and fog and flips us off and disappears, laughing all the time!   Thank goodness for those captures that have been tucked away for just such days!  Hope all of you are enjoying the weekend as we head towards Christmas!! Wow! Time flies whether you're having fun or not!!!

If you could choose one characteristic that would get you through life,
choose a sense of humor.

The sun accents a well read person in a stylish home! The sun finds its way into your place, and brightens the late autumn feeling. Nice!

Today's header is brilliant! The last photo brings back childhood memories of growing hyacinths in similar vases!

The "old" Photo hunters host finished so I took over as "Photo hunting" and will put a theme each week. If you want to participate in Photo hunting, look on my blog.

I like the way the shadows--and light--are playing over your books!


EVERYWHERE SHADOWS

Shadows above and shadows below,
Shadows that blaze and shadows that glow;
Shadows outside and shadows indoors,
Shadows on trees and shadows on floors;
Everywhere shadows calling my name,
Everywhere shadows no one can tame.

Love the shadow of you (I'm guessing it's you). The bookshelf one is warm and welcoming just like a den.
And I am always amused by your sense of humor!
