Shadow Shot Sunday-2 reappears this week, courtesy of our three outstanding hosts, Rose, MMT and Gemma. We look here, there (and perhaps everywhere) for shadowy objects. Today it is summer, a time of warmer temperatures, more sun and naturally, shadows.
The subject is the gateway to the impressive Grove Street Cemetery in New Haven, on the periphery of Yale University. This burial ground dates back to 1797, replacing the grounds on the New Haven Green. The portal here is in an Egyptian Revival Style, itself built in 1845, and the source of shadow.
The grounds memorialize over 14,000 historic figures who lived in Connecticut that are interred here, including: Lyman Beecher, abolitionist; Charles Goodyear, of tire fame; David Humphreys; Roger Sherman, who signed the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the United States Constitution; and Eli Whitney, inventor of the cotton gin.
The shadowy lighting falls upon this stone portal, adding an aura to the history of the entry. See more shadows at this fun meme!
