Shadow Shot Sunday - Cold city hall




Shadow Shot Sunday 2 returns on a cold Friday in front of Ansonia City Hall. We visited the City Clerk's office to have a form notarized and as I parked along the curb in front and noticed the long winter shadows. Since that I had my phone with me, and despite the cold driving wind (and no gloves) I chose to capture the beautiful old building under the long southern sun...

The captures in are shadowy indeed, the stout and frigid breeze a small price to pay. I started the van via the remote start to have it warm inside upon my return...See more shadowy art at SSS2

Dear Ralph
These are wonderful "cold" shadows .. there is something about stone work that draws the eyes to it like a magnet. Our weather is topsy turvy .. we are due for rain today then later this week temps will drop so far as to -28 .. not nice! but then January is not a nice month is it ? LOL

I haven't used the camera in my phone yet .. I can barley use the phone! haha

So handy to have, isn't it? One no longer needs to say, oh, darn! I wish I had my camera with me since nearly every cell phone have a camera of sorts in it. I can so relate to the cold wind biting while trying to take that shot. I was using my cell phone camera last night in the cold wind too and then realized that it now has voice commands where I can just say, 'shoot' and it will take a picture!

Terrific shadow shots for the day, Ralph! I'm glad you braved the cold! It's cold and FOGGY in Seattle and has been for days, not much to get photos of -- can barely see across the street! Hope you have a great weekend!

You "done good" out in the cold there yesterday!

Our City Hall is a beautiful edifice.

Had it not been for the snow in the foreground, I would have thought these shots were from a bright spring day! :)

so nice to have a sunny day to photograph this fine old building.
Love the railing shadows along with the roofline shadows!

A superb captured, in a way or a GREAT one, indeed.

Yeah, you have cold there and we have freezing here...§:-)
But Mr. Sunshine, shone on me Friday & Saturday but with -18 deg? I can't resist not going inside after a 5 mins walk.Unfortunately, freezing.

You did a great job, bro...

Happy SSS & hugs to P.

The little piles of snow seem to stubbornly argue with the beautiful sunlight above them! Lovely perspective of stepped shadows! And adore that impressive building design!

Love it! The shadows seem to make the steps spill out of the frame.

Great shadows on the old building.
Winter is on us again!

Oh the things we shadow seekers endure to capture those great shadow shots, the cold, the wind, and the heat all for the love of shadows. But, all worth it when we post our beloved photos.
Your photos are wonderful, glad you took the time to capture them and shared them with us!

brrrrr...this wonderful old building, dressed in the best shadows, does, indeed, look cold.
Great shots, Ralph.
