Shadow Shot Sunday!

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

 

Don't postpone joy until you have learned all of your lessons. Joy is your lesson.
Alan Cohen
And Joy is Everywhere;

It is in the Earth's green covering of grass;
In the blue serenity of the Sky;
In the reckless exuberance of Spring;
In the severe abstinence of gray Winter;
 Rabindranath Tagore
Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host
against difficulties.  Helen Keller
The key to life is imagination. If you don't have that, no matter what you
have, it's meaningless. If you do have imagination. you can make feast of
straw.
Jane Stanton Hitchcock

Where can I get a copy of that book???!!!

BOOKISH SHADOWS

Darksome shadows in my path,
You are not the Grapes of Wrath;

And yet when I hear your hums,
Something Wicked This Way Comes!

May your darkness turn to light
Like The House of Mirth, all right?

May all sadness drift away—
Send Lolita here to play!

Shadowy Path

Ms. Becky said...

Oh oh! My favorite ruby glass shadow. That's a comforting sight for me always, no matter the angle or perspective you've captured. And I'm really loving that gulls in the parking lot shot - how fun. You had an audience. The quotes today are perfect for steeling us against the January chill. I forgot to mention yesterday how hard I laughed when I saw your new header. That is a HOOT. happy SSS to you Sylvia. keep your toes warm.

Ralph said...

Given the snow, ice, rain and flooding around SEA, these views are so nice, the warm sun and resulting shadows the reminder of nicer weather...soon again we hope!

ladyfi said...

Wonderful shots - love the gulls all lined up in the last photo. Have a wonderful weekend.

Cassie said...

Love your newest masthead. Your Mumbai buddy is very clever.

Terrific Shadow Shots Sylvia...I thought for sure you would have some from all that snow that has been dumped on Seattle lately though!! Happy SSS to you.

Kelly said...

I love the shadow of the glasses over the red glass shadow. And those bird all standing around in the bottom shot made me burst out laughing! Fun!

TexWisGirl said...

Antonette said...

Martha Z said...

Nice shadows, Sylvia, but I don't think you are having much chance for shadow shots lately.

forgetmenot said...

All lovely shadows, but the table with the eyeglasses is wonderful--very creative. Nice work, Sylvia. Have a great Sunday. Mickie ;)

Great shadow shots.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

All great shadow shots Sylvia but the seagulls in the parking lot with their teeny shadows is so cute, they all look like they're guarding a parking spot. and btw I don't know how I could have possibly missed your Skywatch Friday shots but they are beyond spectacular, they are hot, hot, hot!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

The shadow shot of the glasses is GREAT... I love seeing that sweet little doggie --and your Canada Goose--and other birds...

YES---JOY is all around us. We just need to look for it.

Thanks for a great post.
Hugs,
Betsy

I know these are not shot yesterday / you had snow then! :)
Snowy greetings from Helsinki!

sarayutouched said...

the seagull shot reminds me of "finding nemo" and it made me laugh. thanks for making laugh.

gigihawaii said...

Are those eyeglass frames red? If so, great! Red is definitely your color and it looks good on you.

John said...

Beautiful shadow shots!

Shadows at my site. Looking forward to your visit.

Paula Scott said...

Looks like the sea gulls are trying to decide who park where! I also love the double treat with the red glass and your reading glasses. Hope the snow didn't hinder you much.

Riet said...

All great shadows Sylvia. I love the dog.

Tracy said...

Sylvia,
I love the doves in the parking lot...what is it they are waiting for? don't you wonder?
I'm not sure what it is that is creating the red on the table with the shadow but it is lovely...reminds me of my grandmother's red window in her house and everything that sat in front of it turned to red glows...

Joan said...

If I didn't see your sweet dog there...I might have thought, "maybe a rooster?".
Always love your colorful glass shadows!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Mr Sam looks as handsome as ever in that first shot! He is adorable! The birds in the street look as if they own it! And the table shadows are like a pool of magic! Just stunning!

Jack said...

A nice variety of enjoyable photos today. The ruby reflection caught my attention.

NixBlog said...

A beautiful collection of shadowy shots, Sylvia. Love all the animals! The complex colours forms and shadows of the tabletop photo are remarkable!
Enjoy your Sunday!

LV said...

What a wonderful variety of neat creatures and their shadows. Love your presentation.

xinex said...

Beautiful shadow shots but you know my favorite is the eyeglasses...Christine

SandyCarlson said...

"Joy is your lesson" could be the theme of your blog! Beautiful and amazing.

Mama Zen said...

Great shadows! Sam is the cutest shadow ever!

chubskulit said...

That last shot is a beauty!

Al said...

This is a wonderful set of shadows, Sylvia - I think my favorite is the birds in the parking lot. I hope you and Sam are enjoying your weekend, I know Socks enjoyed meeting horses on today's nearby hike!

Sérgio Pontes said...

Genie said...

Your post this week is one of my favorites. The animals are so cute and the picture of your glasses is stunning. Love your new banner. It has to be one of the best. genie

Indrani said...

You always have a wide variety.

The Chair Speaks said...

Oh Sam, you are so cute!

Lee Spangler said...

Yeah I liked the dog too and the other animal shots. How can a person go wrong on your relaxing site which promotes joy

Ann said...

gulls at school assembly. I posted a line of gulls just now.

Fabulous photos, Sylvia. That Canadian goose looks lost there. Your red glass shadow is so very artistic.

anni said...

Cezar and Léia said...

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Love the Canadian Goose...but I am 100% positive my favorite this week is the Christmas Cactus image with the reflection of the red vase and the eye glasses. A picture paints a 1000 words, that one is the epitome.

Old Man and the Sea

George said...

These are marvelous shadows and reflections. I really like the picture with the glass and the reflection of the red vase. Of course, Sam makes a very handsome shadow as well.

Crafty Gardener said...

Patti said...

Those silly seagulls made me smile..and I love the shadows on top of shadows on your table.

Another lovely sequence - the dog has changed into an exotic looking camel.....

What Can I Say?

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.
