Shadow Shot Sunday



Tracy of Hey Harriet hosts The Shadow Shot Sunday meme.



Sometimes the simplest things throw a really good shadow, right! I thought this fire escape on the front of this building in Bayside, NY did just that! See the window to the left? I posted that last week.


Go visit Tracy to see her gallery of shadows and her own great post!

That looks like bright light on an fall day, so satisfying.
Have you ever climbed up or down one, Mary? I don't think I ever have and I don't see them much anymore.

What a fabulous building to photograph - from any angle. I love the simplicity of your shot.

The fire escapes are functional, certainly not stylish in steel. The shadows, on the other hand, are delicate, light and not as clunky looking as the main subject. I remember these escapes from when we lived on 42nd Avenue in Bayside. A nice capture!

I love the way the shadows of the fire escapes are superimposed on the lines of the brick. So much to take in.

The landing shadows are very prominent but I love the more subtle side shadow!

Remembering to look up with the camera leads us to some marvelous views doesn't it. Love the shadows of the fire escape you've captured here.

i LIKE this mary t.!
oh wow what a lovely building.
it looks so frail and the windows!
oh...i love it and the shadows you found too.
you even caught the details of the fan and the air conditioner in the white ruffled curtained windows where the fire escape stairs are reflecting too.
i must go and look at it again!
