deck chair and shadows

my photograph of a plastic chair and it’s shadow is part of my series of photographs of “What I see around and in my home”

This photograph I took of a rock, that I placed on
an old distressed picnic table , represents for me, the aging process of living things. The table represents change as we grow older. The rock can last for millions of years. It may be buried in the ground or it could be broken into small pieces, but will last much longer than wood or paint or humans.

Guanajuato is a beautiful city with many historical landmarks. The people were friendly,the food was excellent,and I had no concern about my safety.My recent photos reflect my interest in textures. Future posts will be about shapes and shadows that I saw in Guanajuato.

I was walking in a semi-dark hallway of Webster Groves Christian Church and saw this image on the hallway wall. A flood light was on behind a tree,in a outside courtyard, which projected this image through a window. I stopped and took this photo of the tree shadow. The shadow was at least seven feet tall. I stopped and admired this image for a few minutes.

This photo of steps and three traffic cones  was taken at Webster groves Christian Church at sunset. Light was coming inside through an exit door window. I was at a drawing session of a costumed model and took this photo during a break.

This photo was taken about halfway through my taking photos at sunset for ten minutes on March 2,2013. These colors in these photos were not enhanced and are very close to the colors I saw that evening.
