Shadow Shot Sunday

taken from my car window on a stormy day
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, Psalm 17:8

In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don't.
Blaise Pascal

same view from car window on sunshiny day. I sit here each time I go to the library and can't help myself
Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.
Junichiro Tanizaki



Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.
Walt Whitman

Gorgeous, Sandra... I love those shadows of the palm trees. Since we don't have palm trees here, I am always fascinated to see them.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sandra, the shadows in stormy weather seem more dramatic and defined so I preferr that shot. Enjoyed yesterday's "ballerina" post as well.

Palm trees make wonderful shadows. The shadow in the stormy day photo have a more muted appearance plus you got some great reflections in the windows.
