Shadow Shot Sunday!

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


Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil.
Bishop Reginald Heber

We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our
hearts.
William Hazlitt

Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
Lao Tzu


It's Snowing Hard here today!!

Sam's a star this week, in more ways than one!

Ralph said...

The little white flower opens up and stands out in that sea of green - much like the sun rising. Spring will arrive...Sam is a nice dog, not so large in person but with a mighty shadow! We hope for warm days to enjoy our time in that beautiful park!

Patti said...

Love the header today! You look so regal as a sphinx! haha

Sam is such a cutie.

And I'm eagerly awaiting spring's arrival. I love the third photo. So tranquil.

Linnea said...

Those shadows sure remind me of summer...I'm sure you're looking forward to warmer, sunnier days ahead! Still no rain down here. Just blue skies and lots of sunshine. Enjoy the weekend.

Robin said...

Beautiful images. Spring has been a real tease over here too. After a miserable January (rained 29 of 31 days!) we got a few days of sun in February but winter is due to return with a vengeance this week. Blech, I've had enough!

John McElveen said...

I wanna see the Green green grass of home--Stunning Sylvia!

Thanks,

John

Jo said...

Beautiful shots, Sylvia. I love the Sam shot as well! I've been unable to comment as my Internet is a great challenge at the moment. I will visit when I can! Thanks for always visiting my blog. Hope you're having a great weekend. Jo

Joan said...

I would love to have a picnic in that park. Beautiful!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such beautiful, scenic views all bathed in sunlight and shadow! But Sam's photo wins for me! One handsome character in his shadowy verandah world!

NixBlog said...

Coming back after a long time. Nice to see the images and the one liners. So apt and touching.

How have you been, Sylvia? Take care.

Spadoman said...

Dear Ms. Sylvia... So glad to stop by and visit to see the shadow shots once again. I have missed you. I love the Tzu quote and the fabulous photo to go with it. Love the shadows of the trees on the grass. Looks so peaceful. Strong powerful shadows with your friend on the deck, too. Great stuff!

Peace

The first shot is perfect Sylvia, water lilies always seem so exotic! How cute is Sam, with those big white bushy eyebrows, he looks like an intelligent older gentleman haha!

Oh Sylvia,
Love this quote...We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our
hearts. I wish that was the way more would see the world...

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.
