Shadow Shots: Slow Moving Shadows

I took these two shots late afternoon. I think the building is lovely to begin with and is even more so when bathed in a mix of sun and shadow.

Oh, you're right, Dianne! It is a beautiful building and your shadow shots really show it off well! Wishing you all good things for 2010! Lots of love and laughter, good health and a pocket full of coins! And Hope will supply a lot of that! Enjoy!

These shadows frame the beautiful building! The charm of long-ago architecture stands out so. A fine capture of the past with outstanding lighting!

These are both lovely photos of this building ... lot the details and the touch of blue sky above. LOTS of sunshine where I live, so I’ve shared A Mosaic of Neighborhood Shadows at Sacred Ruminations and ‘Critter Shadows’ at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

It's as light is a character in a novel, isn't it? It always add drama!

Hey Harriet said...

It's a beautiful old building loaded with character. Sadly they just don't make them like this anymore! Happy Sunday to you!

I also admire this old building. It looks like Paris to moi.

Neat winter afternoon shadows you've captured.

Happy 2010 to you and yours.

Come, shadows, arise.
Like eagles mount to the skies
on your wings of light.

Bring-on-the-Band Shadows!

Yes, I love the detail on old buildings. This one, with its dark paint is further enhanced by the shadow.

They just don't make 'em like they used to. I adore old buildings, and this one is a beauty. I like the way the shadows fall on the details. Nice shots!

The angle, hues and shadows really help the eyes focus on the beauty of the building. I love seeing old buildings in my hometown.
