Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Shadow Reflection

A water bowl that we keep on the verandah for the birds.
Not only is it surrounded by shadow patterns, but part of the reflection inside the bowl is a shadow.

When day awakens
Water waits for sun's make-up
And the shadows shine

*Shadow quote found on Hootin Anni's blog:
A dream itself is but a shadow.
- William Shakespeare Hamlet 2.2

Welcome to the new world of Shadow Shot Sunday!

Your hosts are:
Magical Mystical Teacher
Rose (chubskulit)
Gemma Wiseman

DON'T FORGET!
I am seeking and collecting shadow quotes.
If you find a shadow quote, (or would like to create your own) include it in ANY of your SSS2 blog posts.
(There is now a button for shadow quotes just beneath the header. This will be a database of shadow quotes, so you will see what has been collected.)
Each time it is my turn to post on SSS2, I will include one of these quotes + a link to your blog post.



May the sunlight and shadows always be with you!

Gemma this is a great shadow shot .. I love using water for that extra edge on shadows it has so many different "takes" to it .. Water is the blood of the earth and it is precious, yet so giving!

How nice for the birds! At our house, they prefer the dogs bowls filled with crunchies - which they like to share. :)

Ralph said...

The birds can get a great look at themselves while having that drink. Nice big bird bowl!

Your shadowy bird bath would be emptied by our Baby Rocket Dog in the blink of an eye! This shadow within the dish: is it birdie heads?? Liking Hootin Anni's Shakespeare quote too. Happy SSS Miss Gemma.

The shadows of simple things always intrigue me.
