Sun Porch Shadows

I visited the Mississippi Artist blog  Paint or Dig this morning and saw where she was participating in Shadow Shot Sunday at Hey Harriet's Photography.     The idea of shadow shots was intriguing to me so I thought I would give it a shot.  All of these pictures were taken on my sun porch this morning.


This odd picture shows the shadows on the floor that reflect the menagerie of sun catchers hanging in my sun porch window.

As the sun passes through this orange bottle, it reminds me of a fiery seaside sunset.

Two more perspectives of the bottle and lantern.

I need to get my head out of the shadows and into the kitchen before the boys start asking “What’s for lunch?”.    I have enjoyed participating in Shadow Shot Sunday.

Til next time,

"menagerie of sun catchers"

What a wonderful phrase! I think I'll "borrow" it and incorporate it into a poem someday. Thank you!


A shadow, a shadow, a shadow you say?
A shadow is coming to dinner today?

Oh, what shall we feed it, and what will it eat?
Just toss down a few rays of light at its feet,

And watch its dark mouth gobble up every ray,
But be sure, my friend, you don’t get in its way;

Keep out of the light so it won’t gobble you.
(If I were the hostess, that’s just what I’d do.)

A shadow is easy to feed, so they say,
So welcome your shadow to dinner today.

Beautiful shadows, I love the way you captured the orange shadow, giving it the illusion of another bottle laying on the table.
