Shadow Shot Sunday - Gazebo
Shadow Shot Sunday by Tracy reappears, to the delight of participant and viewer alike. Today we are on the town green of small town (13,000) Derby Connecticut on a sparkling autumn day.
What passes for style depends on your point of view. Modern architecture has its charm, providing of course that lines and angles appeals to you. The structure in the background is full of a brick and glass constructed in the mid-1970s. Not unattractive, but perhaps a bit bland.
Of course, the charm of the past allows for myriad details and shapes that may just leave great shadows. Perhaps a gazebo constructed in 1990, using the classic octagon shape from eons ago. The lattice under the eaves and the cupola on the roof can be from 100 years ago. The multi-sided shadow follows the form nicely. Old and new architecture coexist on the historic town green.
Shadows of all shapes remain classic, so see more at Brisbane’s own Hey Harriet!
