Shadow Shot Sunday

I had a lot fun with Shadow Shot Sunday last week and the sun came out a few times this week so I thought I'd give it another try. Shadow Shot Sunday hosted over at Hey Harriet's blog and if you like shadows (as I do), check out all the wonderful posts featuring shadows of all kinds. Here's what I came up with for this week.

LOL! Kitty does not look like she wants to participate in your shadow pictures! She wants her sunlight!

Debbie said...

Our winters in Oregon can be pretty gray. It really makes me appreciate days with shadows all the more! Yours are beautiful.

Hey Harriet said...

Woohoo! You've been busy chasing shadows this week! I LOVE them all! So glad you joined in again!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

I love those! Shadows can produce some wonderful art.

Wonderful sets of shadows and so glad the sun is out. Each shadow is special on its own but my fav is the cool kitty under the table :D

Pretty shots!

I like the close up of the bear and the shadows.

Sweet Repose said...

Boy our eyes are wide open now aren't they...to the simple beauty of a shadow...they're everywhere!!!

Lisa B. said...

Lots of lovely shadows. I love the first ones and the second to last best. I really like soft shadows on the gently rolling ground.

Akelamalu said...

They're all brill but I particularly like the cat ones!

High Desert Diva said...

You are definitely addicted. Welcome to the club!

Deborah Godin said...

I love those winter shadows, the blue patterns on the white is beautiful!

Diana said...

The one of the green curtains is very striking. I really like it!

Jan said...

These are all great Shadow shots. I really like the 1st and last, perhaps because we don't have snow.

Paz said...

Fun shadow shots, all! Thanks for sharing them with us.

I always have such a hard time picking a favorite - not that I need to - as I scroll down I keep saying oh and ah :)

the green of the curtains is lovely

untouched snow is always beautiful

love the gray glow on Angel

and the deep chair shadows on TG

such an awesome collection!

You were busy Raven..I love the look of tree shadows on the snow and the hand is very clever. Hope you are having a good weekend and staying warm...Michelle..

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

Fantastic variety of shadow shots.

Love all shots, though kitty doesn't seems happy joining our game §:-)

Pagan Sphinx said...

Oh, my! Raven, this is a gorgeous series of shadow shots! I'm with Di. It's hard to pick a favorite.

The tree shadows on snow are a treat. I saw many nice ones yesterday while on a day trip to a museum but we had a car-full of family and a timeline to get there, so I couldn't pull over to take pictures.

I love the bears, too. But I especially love the kitty under the chair. The composition, the shadow, the light and the beautiful cat all make for a really spectacular photo.

Nice work!

PJ said...

Shadows with catitude, it's the perfect combination. I'm going to have to work harder to make a collection of shadow!

Elizabeth said...

Loved the shadows on the snow - and the cat!
in fact all of them.
Was so interested to hear you lived in NYC.
I would really prefer to live in the country but do my best to enjoy what surrounds me!
All the best for 2009

Carletta said...

My favorite is Angel under the chair! I like the snow of the next to last pic too.

gabrielle said...

I love the textured green curtains. The soft weave reminds me of old tablecloths. The terraced shadows an invitation to step out.

Tara Grace is irresistible.

Robert said...

Having not visited blogs in so long, this is a nice one to come back to. I hope your new year is off to a great start. Best wishes to you for this year. :)

Michael Manning said...

This was so refreshing, Raven! Happy New Year to You with lol!!! :D)

Lily Hydrangea said...

great shadows! Your grey cat looks like a thinner version of mine...

storyteller said...

Another wonderful series of photos ... and I'm looking forward to buying a new camera (thinking about a Nikon d60) so I can take better photos and participate in more of these photo memes ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Quiet Paths said...

Very intriguing post. I think I am going to start viewing shadows on curtains in a totally new way! Loved this.

Louise said...

I love shadows. You did them great justice!

San said...

Great shadow shots. For a woman who doesn't leave home, you certainly know how to plumb the depths of visual diversity in your immediate surroundings.

Don't I sound like a sociologist?
