Rest Awhile


A shadowy corner of my verandah

Come and rest awhile
Take some time to bask in sun

Happiest Period in Life

"Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, 
when the eager passions of youth are cooled, 
and the infirmities of age not yet begun;
 as we see that the shadows, 
which are at morning and evening so large, 
almost entirely disappear at midday." 
-Eleanor Roosevelt-

Body Language

"Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words."
-Deborah Bull-
"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. 
When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."

Marble Shadows

Gabba Gabba Hey! Shadow Shot Sunday...2!


Welcome, all, to Shadow Shot Sunday 2! Your faithful hosts are:
and

And myself, Toby, here today as a standby host - it's always exciting it is for me to host this meme, one of my old favorites!

Here are some fun shadows that I found inside our house, a few weeks ago:

I know that the custom here at SSS2 is to provide a haiku, so here goes nothing:

standing tall and proud
playful yet so serious
ready for action!

By the way, if any of you out there are interested in being a standby host, let us know in the comments - I know that new hosts are always welcome! It's easy, and a lot of fun!

There you have it! All that's left now is for all of you to join along in the shadow catching game. Just post something shadowy (and please link here when you do), and then sign up below. And don't forget to go and visit the other posts - it's fun to see shadows from all over the world!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Still Shining in the Shadows


Last Sunday, parked on the top of Arthurs Seat mountain, Mornington Peninsula was this beauty.
The top of the mountain on Sundays is a regular venue for car and motorbike enthusiasts.
A great place for a photo shoot!

In the sun's shadows
Yesterday's beauty shines on
Wonder of design
