Shadow Shot Sunday

You take a week away,for a holiday and your camera is a constant on that trip. But you can't escape the lure of shadows! So of course, I have lots of shadows to share from Myrtle Beach - a lot better than the snow we have now! (we got over a foot on Wednesday along with minus degree weather most of the week!)
Here are some shadows from our first day walking on the beach:
and the baordwalk:

Time to share skies - and after a week of glorious sunrises in Myrtle Beach last week I have a few to share!

And that blue sky was so lovely to see almost every day!

Wishcast Wednesday

I have not taken part in Wishcast Wednesday for a while. Time seems to have been at a premium lately and mid week is hectic. But I am home today and hearing the news of Liz Taylor's death, made me think of Jamie's wish question this week:

How do you wish to sparkle?

If ever there was a woman who sparkled it was Liz Taylor. She was legendary and so full of life.

I looked up the definition of sparkle and found this:

1. (v.i.) sparkle to shine or glisten with little gleams of light, as a brilliant gem; glitter.

2. sparkle to be brilliant, lively, or vivacious.

Again - this made me think of Elizabeth Taylor!

There was also a quote by Henry Ford:

"Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas."

I am tired of being tired, of being quiet, of being sluggish and careful.
I need to add sparkle to my life; to be more lively and gutsy. I need more enthusiasm, and a surge of energy! I need to find a passion and take it on fully. Life is to be lived, not just endured!

Jamie of Jamie Ridler Studios encourages us to "be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes.
It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog . Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together. Let the magic begin!"

Shadow Shot Sunday

Shadows make for fun captures. On sunny days, they are a bit easier to find but once you start looking, they appear everywhere. Here are a couple from this past week:
