Summer afternoon—
deep shadows on my sandals
make me long for light.

I really like the first shot with the shoes. The colors, shadows, and tiles are appealing.

Happily Retired Gal said...

Both photos have lovely shadow patterns ... hard to choose a favorite this morning.
Hugs and blessings,

The top pic is an interesting interplay of lines-straight contrasting with curvy and square overlaid with oblique. Very nice.

The lower one is more uniform-the shadows follow the grain of the wood, the curves are there but understated. It is a calmer picture than the first, and also very nice!

Julia Smith said...

The first shot is really exceptional.

Or how to make ART out of a simple pair of slippers and a shadow. Awesome!

bobbie said...

Lucy said...

Purrs,

Love those shadowy patterns.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

We just love these shadows....the lazy days of summer shadows! It is such a sad thing to give up the flip flops for shoes though...that is something we are not looking forward too!

Love both of the shots, Dianne! :)

ewix said...

The top picture says it all!
Very relaxing.

You've captured two totally different shadow looks here--great textures and contrasts and lighting.

M.Kate said...

What lovely set of shadows :P

Bim said...

Great set - I love the second one especially.

Pagan Sphinx said...

I love afternoon light. And I love being alone to bask in it.

The shoes seem sad to have been left behind, abandoned in the fading light. Love the abstract quality of that second one.

You have a great eye for photography. Not everyone would have seen the possibilities in these scenes.
