Shadow Shot Sunday is a fun avocation, as shadows abound in every nook.
Earlier, Patti and I were driving through New Haven and the older architecture offers a style just perfect for patterns of light and shade.
The church of St. Mary looks substantial with the ambient lighting, the stone and stained glass lovely. This gothic structure was built in 1874, replacing the original building destroyed by fire in 1848.
It was a nice day, not too hot and with the windows down on the Dodge driving around the edge of Yale University.
This is a typical city view with a walk/don't walk light, a utility pole full of advertisements, and an iron fence surrounding a monument.
This is the Broadway Civil War monument that was dedicated in 1905. It sits 32 feet tall and was built at a then cost of about $5000.
The inscription reads in part: “Erected by the joint contributions of the state of Associations of 1st Conn. Light Battery and 6th, 7th and 10th Conn. Vols. as a sacred and perpetual memorial to men who suffered and died that the republic might live: 1861-1865.”
The shadows fall onto the infantryman as he scans the horizon on both frames...
This building was featured in another post recently. However, I love the style and architecture of a begone era, so post it again. And the intricate shadows that fall upon it.
This is on the old campus of Yale, the building Welch hall, a freshman dorm. This 1891 beauty is full of slate, brick, dormers, turrets and windows surrounded by arches. A fine style that is not built any more, no doubt due to cost considerations...
The final downtown picture before we trek back to suburbia is the New Haven Green. The green sits as the middle square of the original nine square grid the city laid out in 1638. As in the past, the sun and shade allow this to be an urban oasis.
Shadows are all around, especially in an urban environment. But shadowy art occurs everywhere, so check out much more at Hey Harriet
