PhotoHunter: shadows

We're travelling all day on Saturday, and just at this minute I should be preparing!! This will have to go up early, and I won't be able to do the rounds for commenting until Sunday I'm afraid.



One set of shadows from indoors, and one from outdoors.

shadows hall

The cool and welcoming hall at the Mairie, Monte Carlo


Mislike me not for my complexion,
The shadowed livery of the burnished sun,
To whom I am a neighbour and near bred.

~ Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice



shadows tree

The river bank near our home.


What is your substance, whereof are you made,
That millions of strange shadows on you tend?

~ Shakespeare: Sonnet 53

  16. I like the outdoor shot. Makes me think of being outside in an old world castle or something like that. Mine is up now. And I also wanted to let you know that there is still time to enter my contest for a great photography gadget at Win an XShot from BenSpark.
