Shadow Shot Sunday #189 ~ Phoenix ZooLights Shadows

Last Tuesday evening we went to the Phoenix Zoo ZooLights with our daughter, SIL,David,  and his two sister's families.  David's eldest sister and her husband both work at the Zoo.  In fact, David's brother in law is the designer for ZooLights.  It was fabulous!  If you look closely, you can spy some  shadows there.

Shadow Shot Sunday # 188 ~ Merry Christmas to All

Merry Christmas to all the Shadow Shooters and our guests!  I thought I'd show you around our condo living room while I was awaiting the arrival of our daughter and SIL from the airport (at 130am!).  I had the Christmas music playing and all the candles and trees lit.  No flash was used on these shots, so they are a bit out of focus. 
If you would like to see more Shadow Shots, our hostess, Gemma, can be found HERE.  Please come join in the fun.  Again, Merry Christmas to all!!

Shadow Shot Sunday #187 ~ Roses For Tracy

Dedicating this Shadow Shot to our Australian hostess, Tracy, who is turning over the reigns for SSS to new administrators after today's post.  She's been a wonderful hostess since Shadow Shots inception in May 2008, and we'll miss her.  But, she assures us that she will now be free to "just post" like the rest of us shadow shooters!  Welcome to retirement Tracy, and THANK YOU for all you have done these 3 1/2 years!! These roses are for you.   And, welcome to whomever our new hosts will be.  For one final time, please go to our hostess, Tracy's place to check out who the other shadow shooters are.

Shadow Shot Sunday #186 ~ Utah Night Sky & The Cabin

I took the top photo on our drive through Utah enroute to Phoenix.  The red sunset was shot as Patrick was driving a bit below the speed limit on I-15.  The bottom shot is from our loft, looking into the living room at the cabin.  I already miss the cabin...Already I have the start of my annual Arizona sinus infection.  The weather here is beautiful. Unfortunately I am highly allergic to all the outside dust, plants and smuts!  (What the heck is a smut?!)  Ahhhh well.   For more Shadow Shots, please travel over to our Australian hostess Tracy's blog HERE.  Have a peaceful weekend.

Shadow Shot Sunday #185 ~ Flowers

These shots are from my archives.  I guess the bamboo does't really qualify as a flower, but I had to throw it in here because of the double shadow it casts in this photo.  For more Shadow Shots or to join in the fun,  please venture over to Hey Harriet.  Blessings to all who pass this way!

Shadow Shot Sunday #183 ~ At The Cabin

We'll be heading down south soon, so I thought I'd post some shots from our cabin.  The top photo is our woods from one of the loft windows.  The second photo, of a newly delivered cord of wood, was shot from the the deck.  (Patrick has since quartered all that wood!)  The 3rd photo is a couple of my snowmen, resting next to our little sofa.  Finally, the last shot was taken by my buddy, Maria, when she was visiting in September.  Now there is at least a foot of snow covering the ground.  I hope to get some shadows resting on the white, fluffy stuff for some parting shots!
Now, if you've never visited the Shadow Shot Gallery before, you can get there by going to our hostess Tracy's blog, Hey Harriet.  She's in sunny Australia, so it's already Sunday there.  Blessings to all who pass this way.  Hoping all my friends have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
love, Cassie

Shadow Shot Sunday #182 ~ Our Moose

We named our place Smiling Moose Point.  Guess why!  Here is a young cow, not cowering in the shadows.  When "our" moose come visiting, Hootie, our little  Welsh Terrier, goes nuts.  He barks and wants to get outside so badly.  Baby Rocket Dog, our Airedale Terrier, is much calmer.  Perhaps a bark, then she finds a quiet place to hide. 

For more Shadow Shots visit our hostess, Tracy.  She's at Hey Harriet.  Blessings on all who pass this way.
love, Cassie

Shadow Shot Sunday #180 ~ A Few Loft Shadows

The other day while in our bedroom I was amazed at all the shadows I saw.  Patrick's dresser accumulates all kinds of things that cast cool shadows.  He puts up with my junking up his dresser "decorating" for him while he's gone. What a guy!  hehe.
If you'd like to join us for Shadow Shot Sunday, go on over to our hostess Tracy's blog, Hey Harriet.  She's in Australia, so a day ahead of us here in the USA.  Blessings on your head!
love, Cassie

ps-Happy Birthday to my only sister, Harley!!

Shadow Shot Sunday #176

This sweet little acorn lid was once the cover for a sugar bowl.  After I dropped it, it now just decorates outside our cabin...Just couldn't throw it out!  Patrick drilled a hole in the sugar bowl & it now holds a plant.

Shadow Shot Sunday # 174 ~ Grand Shadows!

I shot both of these shadowy photos of my only grandchildren in 2002.  The little, pouty superman at top is now 12 years old.  This picture has always been a favorite of mine, probably because he usually always had a smile on his face!  The daring, darling PopPop back-walker is now 14 years old and a beautiful young lady.  Everyone has aged quite a bit (including my cutie-pie hubby!) since then.
For more Shadow Shots go see our hostess at Hey Harriet!  Blessings on the heads of all who pass this way.
love, Cassie
