Shade shadows on sidewalk

They can move, but cannot talk

***

I really like seeing shadows on the sidewalk. There are so many funny ways they look – long and tall, short and squat …

Sometimes though, when there are clouds that obscure the sun, you only get shades of gray, and no shadows of yourself or other things.

Shade may come

Shade may go

Shades of happiness

Shades of woe

***

A couple of old sayings I’ve always heard:

You’ve got it made in the shade = all is going great

Shade tree mechanic = one who works on his own car out in the yard

***

We had really shady days lately. It was dense fog all day long for two or three days. It cleared up this morning, though, and the sun is out, so I’m sure there will be shadows and shade here and there. Not a whole lot of shade from the trees because most of the leaves have fallen already.

And, that’s it for today.

Hope your weekend is a good one! 🙂

Feline Friday – Sister in Shadows

Feline Friday – Sister in Shadows

This kitty is the one we call Sister Cat. She looks a bit like a tortoiseshell mix, and looks just like her mother (who is sadly gone now). Sister is very friendly, too, and likes to be petted.  I thought this looked interesting with her own shadow and the tree branch shadows.

We had a weird week, so it was good for taking some odd-ball photos.

First, we saw some cows, close up! Then, we were almost home, and had a tire blow-out. Turns out there were 2 of them, one on each side. Finally got them fixed.

Last evening we had a much needed downpour of rain, and some hail. The rain running down on the glass storm door made for some interesting effects.

Then, for fun, I was trying to make shadows on the wall. Looks kinda creepy! 🙂
