Shadow Shot Sunday

Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday is here again. It's been almost a month (and a rough one) since I last participated, so I have a gazillion crumby photos to choose from and am posting a quarter of a gazillion (and very late too) because I have little or no self control or capacity to make decisions (which is also why I'm posting very late). Given that I never leave the house I fear my offerings are a bit repetitive so it's probably a good thing that there's time between postings. Anyway, I'm looking forward to touring the world's shadows (though it may take me a day or so) and recommend that others check out all the wonderful contributions of others. A lot of my shadows this week are pretty "subtle" (barely there?)... sorry about that. Ok... guess I should stop apologizing if I'm going to post this and just do it. Happy Sunday!

I thought this guy was feral, but I don't know... I didn't see much of him
over the winter and now he's back. He's a lot skinnier than he used to
be so he probably is wild. It was a rough Winter and hasn't been much
of a Spring either.

Tara Grace's turn to have a solo appearance.

There ARE shadows in the next three... really...

Have a lovely day...
and may all your Shadows hold beauty and treasures for the eye and spirit.

Love you blog and photos. I just lost one of my dear dogs and was trying to decide if I should rescue a cat (post on animal blog). Seeing your photos gives me some direction!

I'm a children's author. My writing blog can be found at:

and my blog for animal lovers at:

Would love to have you come visit either or both!

Your yard is like a park -- and if you must be house bound, you picked a lovely place for it! So much better than looking out your windows and seeing someone else's concrete walls.

Katherine, you have marveloous shadows! Birds, trees and the wonderful things of nature! Seems the sun is favoring you... :)

Deborah Godin said...

Lovely grouping of shots, especially the dappled birch!

Jeff B said...

Of all of them, I think I love the one of Tara Grace the best. Such a content look.

Sherrie said...

Beautiful Photos! I like them all, but the one of your gray striped kitty is gorgeous! Have a great day!


Sylvia K said...

Marvelous shots -- all! And so many lovely shadows! Love the dappled birch tree and you kitty is adorable!

Welcome back to the fun!

These shots are really amazing. You seems have a wonderful day overthere. Nature creatures are very healthy and alive, as I can see in my point of view.

Am jealous of your weather. We have a rainy weather since Friday & non-stop till now Sunday.

Anyways, have a wonderful Sunday p.m.

i like the subtle draws you in the the picture. i agree on tara grace...she seems very at peace in the photo.

Andi said...

Wow. I think that I need to start participating in this activity. It looks like it brings so much beauty into your life....and lets you slow down to appreciate it.

We have a mating raven couple in our yard...they go up so high in the trees sometimes that they are nothing but black shadow. I would like to see if one of my cameras is good enough to capture that sometime.

Dr.John said...

Wow! It would take me forever to find that many shadow pictures.

Margaret Gosden said...

Beautiful pictures. The first bird picture so proud of himself, and alert! Thank you for visiting. I will be back!

Carletta said...

I keep meaning to get back to this meme but I keep forgetting to take shadow pictures.
Regardless of your thoughts you did quite well my friend.
I love the first one of the bird's shadow, the first (birch?) tree shadow and the weed on the stump is my favorite!
Now, that cat may be skinnier to you but I'm thinking he has awfully big legs and paws. I can only imagine how he used to look. :)

whizkid said...

These are really good pictures and not at all crumby :)

i like tara grace's name, and her look in this photo. Enjoy your week, and thanks for dropping by.

GalleryJuana said...

Wonderful array of life around your house. We don't have to go far sometimes to see beauty.

Love the one of Tara!

Hey Harriet said...

I have no idea why you are apologising for these shots as they all are great! You're lucky to have such beauty so close to home. Wonderful photos!!! :)

That is the chicken said...

Great usual! But I LOVE the one of the cats face! She looks very satisfied with life.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
