Love the shadow the dog creates! Great shot!

Halcyon said...

Very nice shadows. Love the light in the last one, it looks so golden!
Keep searching for the sun. He's out there somewhere. ;)

Ms. Becky said...

Oh I LOVE that second shot, but they're all fine, as usual. for not having any sunshine you found some fabulous shadows Sylvia! that's what archives are for, right? I know they've saved me more than a few times. wishing you a happy weekend Sylvia.

A nice collection, and as always wise word to go with them!

Paula Scott said...

The doggie shadow is pretty darned cool stuff-at first, you can't tell what the source of the shadow is! A bit of a trick on the eyes (at least mine!).
Have a fabulous weekend!!!

ladyfi said...

Love the golden sunshine in that last shot!

And your headers always make me giggle!

Ralph said...

Whatever the sky, you provide excellent shadows! I like them all, but am fond of the one in the middle - a nice doggie (Mojo or Sam? I forget which one :) stand in shadow and providing one, too. A neat effect! Enjoy your week!

Gemma Wiseman said...

From scenic floral shadows to dramatic mystery shadows to warm shadows! What a beautiful collection!

Rajesh said...

John McElveen said...

I adore the dog shot. Looks like he transformed into a stag. I also love the one after with the little glimpsed reflections.

Sérgio Pontes said...

You've the eye for shadows Sylvia. I hope you get some sunshine soon.

Leovi said...

These flowers give off a wonderful light, beautiful photo of the dog and its shadow, beautiful three. I wish you a happy night.

Cassie said...

Love the flowers! Of course your little pooch is my favorite...BabyRocketDog and Hootie send smooches to him! Happy SSS.

Shadows on books make me want to open the books and start reading! (Maybe because I want to dispel the shadows.)

A SHADOW THE SIZE OF THE SUN

If I had a shadow the size of the sun,
I’m not sure how fast I’d be able to run,
Or if I could flee from its ravenous jaws,
While keeping away from its razor-sharp claws!

Great shadows--love the one with the dog. Your quotes are always worth remembering (or in my case, writing them down so I can reread them). Thanks, Sylvia, for always having an entertaining, worthwhile post. Happy Sunday. Mickie :)

George said...

I'd never guess, looking at these pictures, that you were searching for sunshine. You certainly found some great shadows. The picture of Sam(?) and his shadow is marvelous.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Oh my gosh Sylvia, love all three of these images, Sam in the middle is very special. Gorgeous work!

Rohit Sareen said...

I just love the colour of the flowers...never seen anything like this before.

Have a brilliant week ahead!

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.
