TGIF and time for…drum roll, please…the Weekly Photo Challenge!!  The photo challenge is one of the best ways to meet people from around the world as well as to view amazing photos and interpretations of the weekly theme.

This week’s theme is “Shadowed.”  I love photographing shadows and things that are shadowed, so it was difficult to make a choice.  I finally settled on this photo, with its combination of late-afternoon light and actual shadows, enhanced with a bit of editing zoomy-ness.  I love the home-y feel of it.


  1. The basket looks as though it’s hovering on first glance… that’s the great thing about shadows!

    Beautiful, quite atmospheric.

  4. Thank you for getting the prompt to me. They really do make you think.

  5. Jaap Kroon says:

    Beautiful Janet!

  6. The lighting and shadows have turned this shot of something rather homespun into a drama queen!

  7. viveka says:

    Beautiful and …. inscrutable – I have never got my head around playing with shadows, but I think I have a start playing around. Have a nice weekend, Tina!

  8. I love the dramatic light. Almost looks a bit spooky.

    Most atmospheric, Janet

  11. Lu Wilson says:

    Great shot! I’ve yet to decide how to tackle this week challenge.

    • Glad you like it, Lu. Sometimes it takes a while to decide what to do. I have so many photos that I can usually find something for each week, which is nice.


  12. Norma says:

    Lovely photo and the effect is quite dreamy…. 🙂

  13. Jeremy says:

    I like the mood, the color tone and the faint zoom effect. And the long shadows, of course 🙂

  14. It certainly creates a mood! Well done!

  15. The basket casts such a complicated shadow. Nice.

  17. words4jp says:

    • I’m happy you like it. What’s really cool is our weather right now. No, I lie. It’s freeeeeezing and more. 🙂

      Enjoy the weekend.

        I know. It is sucky. Chicago is yucky. Yet – we have had some blue sky pop out from time to time. It is terribly cold. Syd hates it;)

      • Chicago is often sunny, which makes it even colder, and the wind! Phew! Can’t wait until I can get back out to walk in the mornings. It’s been much too cold this week. and I miss it.

  18. Robin says:

    This is shadow awesomeness! Love the photo 🙂

  19. Great I’m smiling at the word zoomynes. Perfect for app play! 🐣

    this is an intriguing shot… 😛

    • What? Not a “great” shot?? Sticking my tongue out right back at you!


      • yprior1 says:

        oh it is good – and I know that intriguing and interesting can be pseudo words for a half like – but not in this case – I love the shot – the angle – the colors – but intriguing was the first word that came to my mind cos I could not figure out what it was and then when I looked and looked again – it was just cool)

      • I like “intriguing” although I must admit that “interesting” can cover a multitude of either sins or good things. When you write lot of comments as you and I do, finding the right word without it always being the same word, is a challenge. But, since I like words, it’s a good one.


      • yprior1 says:

        good – and I still sometimes think of that post you made with tips for commenting – even though comments usually come easy for me – but It got me thinking – and in my case I sometimes might need to tone it down (and leave off exclamation marks maybe) – ha! but I also know that less can be more with a comment – and while always keeping it real – I also like when I can just leave a sentence or a word – hmmm –

      • It’s so easy to use lots of exclamation marks when online. But then what’s the next step? More? I’m trying to go back to just using a period most of the time and pick words that convey what I mean.

      • yprior1 says:

        same here – and I also feel comfortable to use cool as much as I want – or nice post – and if someone gets crabby about it – well it is what it is I guess – ha!
        enjoyed comment chatting with you today – 🙂 ❤

      • Me, too, with you. One of the best parts of blogging! (Exclamation point intended.) 🙂

      • yprior1 says:

        indeed – and ! (ha) 💞✌

  23. Tina Schell says:

    Very nice Janet – comes across as very moody with the dark lighting (is there such a thing??)😊

  24. Imelda says:

    It looks like a quiet afternoon. 🙂 I like the mood of the photo, Janet.
