Shadow Shot Sunday!

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

I've been waiting to get a new battery for my camera and waiting for some sunshine, so it's been back to the files. I had to laugh when I found the second shot -- it's about the busiest shadow shot I've ever seen and I don't know how got so many in only one shot! Not the best quality, but fun!  Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy!

LOVE the Lou Holtz quote, Sylvia! Your glass is so pretty in the sunlight.

Catherine said...

That second shot is indeed a cornucopia of color - quite wonderful!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

You do have fun with your shadows, Sylvia. The busier the better!

Sylvia....love the shadow of the glass with the reflection of your Christmas cactus in it ~ it is BEAUTIFUL!
However, we are laughing at your first shadow, because I was hunting for quotes yesterday and read this one for Karrie:

"The other day when I was walking through the woods, I saw a
rabbit standing in front of a candle making shadows of people on a tree."
~Stephen Wright

Isn't that funny, then you went ahead and put that picture on...you made us smile :)

Maybe the girls should put that one on their shadow quote page!!

Have a nice weekend Sylvia!

Leovi said...

That funny picture with the shadow of the hand, the third is my favorite, beautiful. I like, very evocative and wildly creative. Greetings and happy weekend.

Who would have thought, such wisdom from Jonathan Winters. I like that image you coupled with it as well, great composition.

Kelly said...

That first one is really fun!

Love your header today, too. :)

Patti said...

I also like the 'frenetic' shadows of the second shot.

The third photo creates quite a mysterious atmosphere.

Have fun seeking shadows this week, Sylvia!

Your top photo really impressed me! The raised pinky finger ~ The black and white. Really a keeper!! Happy SSS Sylvia.

ps-Your Mubai friend is so silly! How does she think up this stuff??

Joan said...

It is indeed a great one!
I always love when you display your glass. So pretty it is.

Pietro said...

Very enjoyable "Shadow Shot Sunday" post, Sylvia!
Have a beautiful Sunday!

Ralph said...

The hand looks almost like a duck quacking - bravo (we really like ducks around here :)

The shadows in color are always so amazing - we so often think of B&W shadows, the hues add a great depth. Enjoy your week!

PERFECT QUOTE! Coach Holtz blessed us here at South Carolina as a great Coach!

Awesome Shadow Shots Sylvia, and as for your header, I can't stop laughing, it just maybe the best one yet.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such striking shadows - especially in the first and last photos! Love the sense of abstract in the first photo and the beautiful mellow shadow light in the last one!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You have a good excuse for searching your shadow archives. And your shadow archives are so good, I'm glad you had to do it. (But I do wish you some sunshine .. it's time!)

sarayutouched said...

the last shadow...strong and warm. yeah...can't believe this snowfall. non all winter then bam!!! thing is tho, next week is suppose to be in the 50's...can you say flooding. but again...it's all about perspective!!

have a blessed weekend sylvia...always enjoy your comments when you stop by!!

George said...

I sure am glad you have your files to share with us. I really like your second photo. It looks like a double exposure, but I don't know how you could do that with a digital camera. In any case, it is really neat.

TexWisGirl said...

that 2nd one is busy, but i like the 3rd one best. :)

Rizalenio said...

The one with the hand shadow reminds me of Audrey Hepburn's movie. It looks chic.

Happy weekend. :)

Al said...

Great shadows, Sylvia - I love the last weekend. I hope you're having a great weekend, I'm spending mine with the grandkids.

Tracy said...

Sylvia, I love the second photo...just gorgeous! All the quotes are lovely...

MyMaracas said...

You know I always admire your glass shots, and you've really outdone yourself with that second one! The simple black shape in the first is a nice contrast.

Grayquill said...

Life and people can be alot like your shadow shots. Real but not always transparent. Hiding but still can be seen.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

I especially like you last quote Sylvia. Many boats we would never catch if we didn't even make an effort.

Ann said...

I see Oprah in your header. I miss her show her.

well Ms. Sylvia, you did a fine job on all of these photos. That second one is very busy, but I find myself looking at a lot of different things. Many shadows and reflections and shadows of reflections! Nice job!


Peace

You have a good collection of colorful vases.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Sylvia I love the Jonathon Winters quote ! .. is that a huge Christmas cactus reflected in the window ? it is enormous and covered in buds ! My poor sickly one is doing nothing ;-(
Your shadows are fun and very atmospheric !

Really like the first pic and the quote along.
God bless you!

My favorite is still the lacy curtain shadows on the warm coloured wall. I hope you are enjoying your weekend Sylvia, we have a long weekend in Perth so tomorrow is a holiday too, yaaaay! Reading in bed when you don't have to get up early, love it!!

NixBlog said...

Lovely shadows, Sylvia. That hand shadow is so eloquent in its gesture!

NatureFootstep said...

yes, the second one is a lot of fun. But I prefere the first, simple one. It brings back so many joyable memories.

Reena Walkling said...

Love that Jonathan Winters' quote!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

You are the sunshiny Shadow Queen Sylvia. I hope you are having a great Sunday.

Jack said...

The Holtz quote is one of those interesting quotes that seems profound but I have no idea what it means. A light goes on not to cast light but because someone flicked the switch.

Linnea said...

Those are quite artistc and unusual shots and shadows. I hope you see the sun this week!
