A truly wordless post for Wordless Wednesday. I've never been able to do that. Great shot here. I love when you can't see what made the shadow.

Jan Parrish said...

Good eye for texture and dimension.

Napaboaniya said...

Great composition. Always great sightings at the end of the ladder :)

What a metaphor for the busy bustle of life. When you step back - you hafta wonder if where we are headed isn't a whole lot like where we've been a shadow ladder leading nowhere. Gotta love it ;)
Happy WW

Robin said...

What's even more fun here is that the object which cast the shadow is not in fact a ladder at all - it's a metal fence with vertical bars :).

The Right Blue said...

Very well composed. I'm interested in that surface there. Is that terrazzo?

Gallicissa said...

That looks an easy climb!
Have a great day!

Robin said...

Hi Bobbie. It is terrazzo - it's the (very leaky not particularly attractive and too expensive to replace so we're stuck resealing it next week) floor of our roof patio.

Great shadow photo. It really looks like a ladder. The other pictures below are neat, too. I've never thought of photographing shadows before. Thanks for visiting mine.

Your ladder to nowhere leaves me speechless! I love it.

angie said...

So cool. Is that the shadow from your roof top banister?

Robin said...

Yup, it is :).

shubd said...

What a wonderful way to capture one's imagination ! How really wonderful of you to turn a perfectly everyday shadow into a ladder with success ! :)
P.S. I liked "Life in the shadows .."
a lot too.
Do keep us regaled with your 'insights' !

Dana said...

Oh, that is cool! I love how you re-vision the railing as a ladder.
