Patti has asked us to find shapes this week. I’m sticking close to home for mine, as all are taken in our house or yard. I always enjoyed geometry; in fact I enjoyed math, because everything was logical. Just call me Spock. 🙂 I enjoyed math until I got to trigonometry, at which time I realized that unless I went into math, I probably wouldn’t have any use for it, even for figuring out the width of a creek from the shadow of a tree.

We’ll start with an edible shape, one cherry tomato from my patio plant, sharing shapes with part of our patio table (not edible.)

A shapely part of an aloe plant.

Cacti are made for geometry!

Although there aren’t innumerable leaves here as there were in the Midwest, we still get some.

Thus endeth today’s geometry lesson. There will be no quiz and it’s pass-fail, so happy weekend!

It’s been a full, good, but very long day. It’s 9:30 pm and I need to go to sleep. So I almost didn’t do a post this week…but decided instead that I’d not exactly cheat but share a photo where there is a door but it’s not the star attraction. This is the visitor center at Saguaro National Park which we visit again two days ago to share it with our older daughter who’s visiting us for the week. The door is just an ordinary door, the park anything but ordinary, the shadows extraordinary.

And now, good night, and a blessed Thursday to each of you.

I’m joining a new (for me) photo challenge today. Jude combines teaching and challenge at Travel Words, this month with the focus on light, this week looking at using light and shadow.

This week’s assignment – Look for shadows. Strong light, casting well-defined shadows, can create interesting abstract images. Layering light and shadows brings a sense of depth to an image and can convey mystery.

Here are a few of my favorite shadow shots, the first one taken in the living room of our home in Ohio.

This shell on the beach at Cape May, New Jersey had a lovely shadow.

I love shadows and have many photos of them.  Today, challenged to do “Shadows” by Tina, I’m going with shadows of/in home.  I hope they start your week off well.

for One Word Sunday

Change is everywhere, even on the Weekly Photo Challenge, which has switched from Fridays to Wednesday. I’m unhappy about losing Wordless Wednesdays unless I double-post, as Thursdays are reserved for Thursday Doors. Change is supposed to be good for me, right? I’ll try to remember that.

On to Shadows.  At Christmas, no place is safe from a decoration!

This week’s challenge is black and white and I confess that I don’t know how to do this on my iPad and as my life is quite hectic right now, I don’t have time to figure out if and how I can do it. But here’s my photo that turned out to be black and white.(Perhaps this is ironic, as there’s a drink, made with Guinness and a pale ale, called a black-and-tan.)   Since the “rules” are rather flexible here and the participants forgiving, I believe this will be acceptable. If not, I’m ready to dodge the virtual wet noodle flogging.

To see the” legitimate” entries, click here.  I’ll be doing another (unexpected) two-day driving trip, so once again, I must apologize for possibly not getting to visit everyone else’s entries or sites.  The next two weeks will be crazy and then I hope I’ll be back to a more regular schedule.  Thanks for your understanding and for all your likes and comments.  It means a lot to me!
