Shadow Shot Sunday 10 : Xilitla

This week I have chosen a selection of shadow shots all taken very recently at the wonderfully quirky hotel "Posada el Castillo" in Xilitla, the former home of the Surrealist Edward James. Enjoy....







For more practical details about Posada El Castillo and Xilitla, check out the last few posts, and for more showy shadow shots check out Hey Harriet by clicking here.....Enjoy!

Oh my! You have so many beautiful shadows here! Love those windows...and the shadows they cast on the sheers. The blue pictures from the pool look like artwork! Then the gate....well, we never can dismiss anything with iron in it!! Thanks for the beautiful collection of shadows!

A wonderful set of shadow shots! The first photo is "sublime" as say French people! I first thought it was taken in a cathedral! Have a sunny and happy day! Ciao!

The first one lingered in my mind for a long time. It's spooky but beautiful at the same time. And the rest is just superb. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

I agree with Cuban, I find these shots haunting and beautiful.

Hey Rosebud, Cuban, EG, Flygirl, Cecile...thank you for your so encouraging comments... I am only just starting to get interetsed in the photography,,, it was really for writing that I started the blog... and also to promote a very positive image of DF and mexico... when it gets such a bad press....
