Shadow Shot Sunday!

Shadow Shot Sunday #2 - Magical Mystical Teacher + Chubskulit + Gemma Wiseman

It's gray, gray, gray again and I had to go looking for some sunshine in my photo files! I wanted to see green grass and happy geese! Enjoy your day.  Wishing you all a very Happy New Year filled with lots of laughter and love!  

Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb
but how well you bounce.

Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out.
Anton Chekhov

There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.

You did find the goose and the grass. Looking forward to your photos, your quotes and your humor in 2012.

TexWisGirl said...

wow, that day-to-day quote pegged it, didn't it!?

happy new year, dear sylvia!

Cassie said...

Sylvia help!! How do I change my "linky" sign-in??? My stupid pc jumps around and it messed up my name. Arghh.

BTW, your ShadowShots are lovely, as usual.

When I grew up and eventually raised our own family of two in Colorado, the Canadian Geese were something we always fed and enjoyed them immensely at the city's park. Loved the shadows with them flaunting their beauty.

And....please....ship me some of those Tacoma Rose candies!!!

Thanks for visiting today, and have a happy new year.

As gray as SEA is reputed to be, you have captured (again) the sun and shadow we in the north crave all winter.

The geese (and their rude attitude) are grazing contentedly, the shade highlighting their impressive form (and the one preening their web foot :), and the boats on the water look quite like a summer day. Happy New Year!

Mama Zen said...

I love the geese!

Kay said...

Here's hoping that 2012 will be a year that we all bounce back. I have lots of hope. Have a terrific new year celebration tonight, Sylvia!

Here's wishing you a HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR!!!

Dimple said...

The geese enjoying the grass are beautiful, but my favorite this week is the roof shot.

May your New Year be blessed!

Paula Scott said...

Lovely, lovely shadows! And, I especially enjoyed the quote from Anton Chekhov! Too true! Life is about surviving the mundane, and so, here's to another wonderful year of conquering the mundane!

Let's make shadows more than shootable! :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Love those geese and shadows! In the first photo they seem to be striding out so proudly! And the last photo has a host of shadow shapes on the house wall! Fascinating!

And I have to make a comment about your header! It is awesome! That must be your friend's most creative header yet! Love those chocolate names! So very you!

I love the goose nibbling on his foot! (made a nice shadow, too) We have a nesting pair that visits our pond each year.

Wishing you good cheer in the coming year!
