Shadow Shot Sunday - Egress

1989 Dodge B250, 21 April 1996
1998 Ford E150, 10 March 2010
2008 Grand Caravan, current steed
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 prompts us to look for shadows, often in unique views. Since I use a power wheelchair for ambulation and driving*, I need egress into said vehicle to traverse the land. Since 20 April 1996, there have been three trusty steeds to allow me to do so. How to enter each vehicle is by lifts and ramps, and with the doors opened on a sunny day, shadows add a pleasant effect to each otherwise utilitarian van conveyances, a 1989 Dodge B250, 1998 Ford E150 and the current 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan, all outfitted for wheelchair entry. Shadows add style to functionality...

*- The light blue 1989 Dodge gives a clue to how I enter all of the vans: the driver's seat turns 90° and I line the chair alongside the driver's seat, turn it back 90° to face the steering wheel and drive (sort of) 'normally'...whatever that means :)

Indeed, they do! Love the pattern that the ramps cast. How could I not?

Some amazing, thoughtful technology has gone into those vehicles. Especially love the detail in the last one. It seems to cast the best, artistic shadows too.

Of course you need a car with good shadows - a without shadows would be like a summer without sun! :)
Have a good week ahead!
