Shadow Shot Sunday is hosted by fun Aussie Tracy in Brisbane - and we hope you feel much better this week!
When the weather cooperates, shadows occur in expected places (or maybe not). Given that the early part of the week was rainy and gray, the first nice day was yesterday.
I was in New Haven to pick up Cam at Union Station for the 5:30 train. I had time - and the point and shoot had an empty memory card...
I drove around the Long Wharf surveying shadowy specimens. On top, construction of the replacement I-95 Quinnipiac River Bridge. Structural steel offers shapes that work well for SSS. (As an aside, this replacement should have been built 20 years ago - rant over).
This office building is called the Long Wharf Maritime Center, and has a pleasing shape that throws lots of shadows and reflections. I like the scaffolding, adding character (and a slight shadow, too
The pleasing shape of the building is lovely, and the offices facing the water (with much higher rents, no doubt) get a view that is outstanding, that of the harbor, Long Island Sound and the outline of Long Island, NY 12 miles (19 km) away.
A nicer day I have yet to see in august, with delightfully dry air and temperature of 77° (25° C), and a sky blue that sparkled over the shore and carried far inland
Nearby is the humungous IKEA store. The sky, shadow and sun when combined with the distortion from inside the windscreen adds a shadowy glow (if there is such a thing :) to the massive structure.
I really like this store, the room displays creative in the stylish Swedish designs - and furniture of high quality as it is designed to be put together easily.
The last view is a fair weather menagerie of clouds. This is similar to the meme Looking at the Sky that I participated in yesterday with a similar shot. The question I have is that a shadow on the underside of the cloud? Perhaps I am taking liberties, but it feels like a shadow...
See many more shadows at Hey Harriet!
