Aren't shadows wonderful! I find them fascinating...nice job.

Dina said...

Have you been down on your knees? :)
Nice one.

Like loose-weave fabric.

That's a cool shot. Almost looks like a mat.

moneythoughts said...

Yes, I agree that is a cool shot. It looks like a metal grate, and yet we know it is nothing more than a shadow. Can there be some deep existential meaning in this photo?

AL said...

Perfect shadow shot! Where were you when you took that?

Robin said...

At the playground a block away from my home. I took it this morning while my daughter was playing. The bench which made the shadow is in fact a metal grating/mesh type affair.

Great shadow - and perfect in monochrome.

So much going on with that simple grid Robin. Makes my eyes wiggly. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Seems daft to come back to say I like the presence of the leaves but . . . well, I do.

Lines, pattern, texture, mood -- you've got it all!

Neat capture Robin..nice pattern and I could skip along! Have a great Sunday

Julie said...

A lovely capture of the shadows emphasising the geometry of the lines. I love how including the shape of the leaves you have only added to what you are trying to say. I like your work here.

Great shot. I've seen something like an optical illusion. Keep staring on your photo and you will see what I have seen. It is like some flushes of small white glows.

An interesting shot of the pavement which is no doubt covered with snow now!

Horsoon said...

This is a very creative shot!

Daryl said...

Dina ... UK said...

A very good sun reflection, we are so cold here it is freezing....
Seasons Greetings to you and your family Robin.....

Mojo said...

Okay, that made me just a little bit dizzy. But I love the light/shadow pattern. Vertigo be damned.

Cool shot, good view for it!

Very often what you don't actually see has the greatest effect.

I almost get dizzy looking at it! Great picture, Robin.
