Shadow Shot Sunday !

Well "Blogger" is looking VERY distorted right now, so I am not sure if this post will even show up ? .. Our weather is tumultuous at best .. wind rain cloud sun .. you pick it every few minutes and we have it .. unnerving !
To add to the mix I finally found this folder which I dated incorrectly .. it reads April 6th when it is May 6th .. go figure .. I lost a month some where and decided to go backwards ?
In any case .. I took a few shots at this amazing morning sun's reflection and shadow on my beloved Staghorn Sumac .. I hope it shows up the way it should on everyone else's monitor rather than mine right now ;-)
Tracy from Hey Harriet is hosting this meme .. and it is the only one I have ever stuck to and enjoyed so much ! Thanks " Harriet" girl ;-)

It looks OK? It looks fine. I see the shadow of a woman, her arms raised to twirl her hair.

It's a terrific shot, Joy...my favourite time of day for light. :)

Hope the weather gets better soon...you deserve it !
Nice shadow shot. Now that's a different meme.

I get problems with blogger also.
Usualy the print is all different sizes than it's suppose to be...then again maybe that's just my computer.

Wonder how many shows are left to Nurse Jackie...looks like she'll be going into rehab soon.

Hi Sylvia and thank you ! : )
I think our weekend is pretty well washed up with these weather fronts storming in and out but hey .. I should catch up on house chores by now anyways ? haha

Diane you have a great imagination girl ! LOL .. The font to my blog and Google page got BIG just this afternoon .. looks strange .. I hope it is just temporary !

Hi Nancy girl .. the mornings when it is quiet and "golden" from the sunrise is just about perfect .. like those twilight times are too : )

Hello Patsi girl and thanks : )
This has been a wacky Spring with all sorts of weather rushing through. OMG .. Nurse Jackie is just too funny at times .. and how did Zoe become so "grown up" and wise ?? LOL .. Yup .. rehab or divorce is on the horizon .. I wonder which will come first ?
I think I am a problem child with the font now too .. what the heck !! is going on ??

Beautiful picture!! I also see a woman in the shadows. Looks like she's wading in the ocean.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Rebecca girl .. you too have a great imagination : ) I love "seeing" what other people SEE in this picture ! thanks girl : )

Beautiful ambience in this shot of pooled light in a world of shadow! Delightful!

Helen said...

Joy, The weather is just as crazy over here to your left... today alone, I think we went through three seasons (someone even mentioned snow for this evening!). This looks like a fun meme, and the responses are almost as varied as a Rorschach test.

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

I just wanted to say that a tree shadow reminds me of a woman, but I see that Rebecca already said that. Great shot, Joy!

The morning light really makes the shadow look great :)

GardenJoy4Me said...

Thank you so much GT !I took three shots of this subject and they all seem to have their own characteristics : ) morning light and I are friends ? : )

Helen it has been a very long time since I have seen such intense, extreme, quickly changing weather !
In minutes .. literally , the sun has its time and brightly so .. then into dark cloud with rain all the while winds whipping away .. and YES ! this "snow" ??? thing has been forecasted which I can see with these temps ! I have a feeling this Spring is a tough cookie and a TEASE ? LOL
This is very much a meme for each "artist" to interpret : ) and very interesting indeed !

Hello Tatyanya : ) yes ! I think the woman theme seems to be the strongest "take" on this shadow : ) Thanks for stopping by girl !

Cat there is nothing quite like morning light is there ? I love twilight .. but it makes me sleepy which is good .. but morning light has that quality of bring me to life : )

Crafty Gardener said...

That's a great shot Joy. Have a great weekend.

Sweet Repose said...

I too love the staghorns...did you get the frost last night, sure been windy and blustery, but the sun is shining on all of the sheets draped in my garden...such is living in the Midwest!!!

Hope you're feeling better!

Water Roots said...

That's a gorgeous shot, Joy! The shadow looks like a woman's shape, curves and all :)

CiNdEe said...

Love it(-:
I love shadows. Infact I was just out sitting in the yard yesterday admiring some(-: (that was after I worked like a dog in the yard of course!)
Happy Mothers Day(-:

Beautiful shot..gorgeous!!

Rebecca @ In The Garden said...

Hey Joy, Happy Mothers Day to you too! I'm glad you are feeling better. Thanks for stopping by my blog to chat, the snow is gone (although starting again tonight??), but my cold has gotten worse. I finally went to the Dr yesterday and they think it could be strep or mono, so we'll wait and see. For mothers day, I asked for boxes of kleenex from hubby and all the kids lol. I have a few plants still waiting to go in, and some re edging to do but it'll just have to wait. I hope to have some new pics soon, the garden seems to be at a standstill, but maybe I just haven't been looking closely enough. ~Rebecca

GardenJoy4Me said...

Thanks Linda ! Hope you have a warmer one over there ? LOL .. This has been a COLD and miserable weekend eh ? Happy MD : )

Hello there SR : ) Thank you !
It has been COLD and WINDY and rainy that would have been snow if it made its mind up ? haha .. I had my Wizard coleus in the plastic greenhouse on the deck but I think it is just too cold and it looks mad at me : ) haha

Hey Martha .. good to have a weekend off ? LOL .. you really have to be CRAZY to wander the garden centers in the freeze we are having now ! Yes : ) "she" seems to be of a female nature, this shadow of mine ?

Cindee girl that is what I do too .. in fact Friday I worked like that .. smelled awful from the soil mixed with poop/fertilizer ? but had to walk around and admire all the work that had happened. Hope to post the before and after pictures for Year 2/a wink wink Happy MD girl !

Thanks Kiki .. thought you would enjoy the life of the tree shot : )

Rebecca girl .. that is awful .. you are worn down and with those other possible conditions hanging over your head .. well I know you must feel miserable. You NEED lots of rest and TLC plus all those tissues .. I swear I went through two boxes a day ! LOL
Don't worry about the garden .. it is fine .. take care of yourself first girl ! Happy MOM's Day too !
