* Tuesday's Tidbits *

As some of you know, I like to participate in different blog memes. At times, they're about table settings (tablescapes), or tea cup collections, which of course require photos. And as some of you also know, I've been lamenting for a LONG time about the pictures my camera takes. Very Poor Quality. Yet I still love to play around with it and take photos, especially when sunlight and shadows are involved. Below are some I took in my dining room, as the sun was going down Sunday evening. (if you click on each photo, you'll be able to view a really BIG picture!)

The one above was taken at table level. I love both the light and shadows.

I like the way the sun shown on the goblet and napkin in this one.

This one has nice sunlight and shadows, as the sun came through the blinds.

I had a great weekend, just doing the usual things around the house. I also attended our Saturday Writers meeting and had lunch afterwards, with writer friends of course! Anything relating to writing is fabulous, you know

I truly hope all of you had a wonderful weekend, no matter where you are or what you did. 

Hello & Welcome to The Thumber, my newest follower! I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you!

  1. I liked the second one the best---nice play of light.

  2. Your photos are lovely, I too, like the second one best.

  3. Lovely pics. I never noticed that your pictures were a problem.

    Just keep pointing and shooting!

  4. Very pretty! That yellow is such a nice contrast to the shadows.

  5. Ooo--love the middle goblet one. Very nice!

  6. Becky I am such a sucker for shadows and light play on items. These are great shots. Hope you have a wonderful week. hugs, Linda

  7. Great pics. I will send you one from my trip to Boston.

  8. You did really well with the photos - really unusual to catch the sunlight and shadows like that. I liked the second one best as well. I'm always looking for good photo opportunities since I've been blogging!

  9. Neat shadow shots, Becky. Have a good week!

  10. Lovely pics, Becky! Glad I'm able to finally comment over here (but I HAVE been visiting!)

  11. Becky, these are beautiful! They look like Shadow Shot Sunday post material (I enjoy participating in that one on Sundays). Happy to hear that you enjoyed your long weekend.


    PS - your placemats are cool!

  12. Hi Becky...Good job on the shadow shots! Hey, my little Kodak Pixel takes fabulous shots and it's less than $80. No kidding. You should go check one out. Susan

  13. Becky, thank you for the kind words about my poem - they meant a lot! At first I thought the poem was amateurish - on the rare occasion that I do write poetry, I don't usually use rhymes - but then I kept pecking at it until it became something nice. I didn't think it was good enough to submit, but with your endorsement, I think now I will! I am going to read it at my mother's memorial service this month. Hugs, Melissa

  14. Dearest Becky,

    I received your treasure trove of gifts and I am amazed at your talent and your generousity.

    Please visit my blog to see my post today all about you!

    Thank you so much for everything.

    *hugs and gratitude*


  15. The photos are great. Can't tell that the camera isn't.

    Been away for a while. Glad to be back and Becky, TODAY is the day I will start writing something other than my blog thanks to your support.

    Hope you have a wonderful day.

  16. Love the quotes!
    I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend. I'm doing much better now that Blogger has released my blog from its clutches.

  18. I love the light, but I love the shadows equally well.
