Shadow Shot Time

It is Shadow Shot time again ... already ?  Time does seem to fly when you are beginning to enter cabin fever time .. So I have been stretched to find some shadows inside with not quite a lot to pick from ?
My china cabinet holds some beautiful reminders of our time that we lived in the Netherlands .. porcelain that was made in Limoges, France. Some pieces of Polish pottery .. some antique pieces of Japanese porcelain, .. everything in the cabinet has a memory .. and has shadows to show me for today's posting.
You can be entertained by other shadow shooters at Shadow Shot II that is hosted by Rose.
So please take a quick trip and enjoy yourself !

Nice shadow shots. Onemonth of winter has gone today, 21st of January, just 2 more to go. A bit of snow coming down today, just light fluffy stuff, but I'm fed up with it already.

This is an interesting shot in all respects.

What a luscious array of shadows and reflections!


Shadow, shadow in my path,
You are not the Grapes of Wrath;

And yet when I hear your hums,
Something Wicked This Way Comes!

May your darkness turn to light
Like The House of Mirth, all right?

May all sadness drift away—
Send Lolita here to play!

Your cabinet is filled with may treasures, gathered over a lifetime of adventure. The delicate porcelain with its delicate detailing is worth viewing behind glass for protection. Add some shadows to the beautiful artistry and you have a great shadowy view. You have done well while nursing your cabin fever!

Kelly said...

It's lovely the way the shadows are working their way into your china cabinet and making their mark there.

Hello Linda : )
Thank you ! I know what you mean about being fed up .. this weather has been so crazy you just don't know what will happen next .. I fear a very extended battle for Spring to settle in this year !

Thank you Lisa girl .. just a haphazard spur of the moment shot .. in desperation ? LOL

Hello there MMT and thank you : )

Dear Ralph thank you so much .. alas cabin fever has just started to tickle my toes .. it will come slamming in soon though .. BIG sigh ! I enjoyed your shots of that gorgeous cat enjoying his spot on the window in the sun : )

Thank you Kelly : ) Your spider shots were really interesting and I am trying to figure out what that little bit was by the feet still !

Thank you so much Sylvia : )
