PT CCCXLII ~ Shadows And Silhouettes

Wonderful banner by Pat and theme by Mitch.

This was taken on a sailing trip around Corsica in '85. It is my sister that sits like the Little Mermaid in the Copenhagen harbour inlet.

The very first photo I took with my then newly purchased Nikon Coolpix compact. I just snapped it off and the result, as you see, is quite remarkable.

This is always a wonderful theme, at least for me. I go looking for shadows and light and silhouettes.

Lovely picture of eggs by Pat, frying in delicious butter.

Here are mine if Blogger cooperates:

Thanks for hosting Mitch and I so had to laugh at my fried eggs, sunny side up.

Here are some silhouettes taken from my garden at sunset.
Sunset over Feldbrunnen

Here are some shadows reflecting on the body of my neighbour's sphinx cat.

Some shadows on the wall caused by the sun shining through the blinds.

I don't know if this one qualifies, but the light effect of Mr. Swiss early in the morning on the computer seemed to be asking for a photo.

Picture This #342 ~ Shadows And Silhouettes

Hi everyone, this is Mitch. I'll be hosting this week. It's said that one of the most important things in photography is light. But with light comes an opposite: shadow. So the theme this week is SHADOWS, along with it's companion: SILHOUETTE!!

Here are mine:

1) Very tall people? Or Very low sun? LOL.
We And Ours

2) Silhouette of Laugharne Castle, Wales.
The Light Of Other Days 2

3) Tree silhouetted by sunset.

4) Shadows and light in the forest.

Picture This #341 ~ Neither/Nor

Marvelous theme, Belita!! I had such fun with it. And, Mitch, I love the twisty banner photo.

Here are my pictures for this week:

House
Neither day nor night.

Piano
Neither plain nor played.

Diving pelican
Neither up nor down. (But headed down.)



Picture This #341 ~ Neither/Nor

Many thanks to Belita for hosting this week. What a great idea for a theme!! It could be used for just about any photo, with a little thought!!  I enjoyed looking for variations on this theme.

Here are mine: 

1) This litter is neither natural nor eco-friendly!!
Man Was Here

2) These lobster-pots were neither in the sea nor full of lobsters!!!
Lobster Pots2

3) The Landsker Cross is neither solid nor made from one piece!!

4) This mirrored fountain is neither dull nor dry!!

Picture This #341 ~ Neither/Nor

Thanks for hosting Belita and I love the banner photo by Mitch.

It's neither my garage, nor my kitchen - but my laundry room and on the right at the back, the wine cellar.

Laundry

It is neither the local bus, nor our car, but the farmer spreading muck over the fields of the village.
Muck Spreading

It is neither an exhibit at the local food fair, or the product of an ostrich, just two normal eggs being fried in a pan.
Fried Eggs

It is neither mine, nor is it the neighbour's, but my husbands great grand-daughter, born just over a month ago.

PT CCCXLI ~ Neither/Nor

Great challenging theme by Belita and beautiful banner by Mitch.

This photo was taken at a visit to the Louisiana art museum near Helsingör, Denmark. The Jaconetti statues are neither standing nor walking.

Hello PT friends! Belita here pleased to host this week's challenge under the theme 'NEITHER/NOR'. Sorry, if you don't like it but as you all know, choosing a theme has become a harder and harder task...
Anyway, I hope you have fun.
Many thanks!


PS. Not very sure of the correct use of 'neither... nor' in the sentences below. Any correction will be highly appreciated...
