Shadow Shot Sunday 23 - Tepoztlan

This shot was taken very recently at one of my favourite weekend getaway destinations only an hour South of Mexico City. It is, of course, the magic village "el pueblo magico" of Tepoztlan, although these wrought iron gates are just an ordinary, everyday part of the place. I like the way these gates and their shadows look in sepia tones as well as monochrome......


What do you think?? I just love the delicate patterns that wrought iron shadows always create..

Especially in the filigree finesse and delicate detail of the shadows......

The iron wrought and shadows are beautiful in sepia and b/w.

Beautiful shadows. I'm not sure which I like better--sepia or black-and-white--but they're both lovely.

OMG! Be still, my heart! One of my favorite kinds of shadow shots are the ones that are cast from wrought iron. I could take those everyday and post them, I swear!
I LOVE these!

Hey Harriet said...

Oh wow, they are wonderfully wild shadows! I like all the ways you've presented them!

Beautiful shadows - almost prettier than the wrought iron casting them.
I thought your post about the cult of santa Muerte quite fascinating. At first I found it grotesque but then started to think about it more rationally. After all, it cannot be avoided so why not embrace it and celebrate it as much as life is embraced? I don't think I'll become a follower though ;-)

I am a wrought iron LOVER, for me this is heaven sight. I wish I have those in my gate. Unfortunately, ain't have one.

Great shadows---

Enjoy your Sunday!
