Shadow Shot Sunday ~ winter sunshine

I happened to see these shadows the other morning by our front door.

'Twas just a dusting of white stuff.  ;-)

It's fun seeking and finding shadows. Join in the fun each weekend at Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Brrr

I used this photo I snapped yesterday morning as a 'mystery photo' for the View from the Valley blog I handle for the New Haven Register. A reader guessed it right away!

The chilly scene is a reservoir in Derby, Ct.

The photo has some shadows in it, so I thought I'd use it again here, since I haven't taken many photos this week!

Join in the fun each week and see shadows from across the globe at Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

Ruby Tuesday ~ art

As I wondered what I could use for a Ruby Tuesday post it dawned on me that the walls of the Valley Arts Council's Gallery@37 are red. 

Ralph and I are members and supporters of the arts council and have had some of our photos displayed there.

Here are three of my favorite pieces from the October show, "Magic and Mysticism: The Art of Believing":

This is "Serenity" by Valley Arts Council President Rich DiCarlo.

This painting, "Looking Glass,' was created by Valley Arts Council Vice President Steve DiRienzo.


Arts council member Len Grayeck painted "Secrets" for the show. 

See lots more photos featuring the color red at Ruby Tuesday 2.

P.S. I write a blog, Brush Strokes, for the Valley Arts Council. Please check it out.  ;-)

Shadow Shot Sunday ~ cherubic

Since the Christmas season is winding down - tomorrow is the "Twelfth Day of Christmas" - I thought I'd use ornament photos to mark the occasion. I was having fun experimenting!
