Shadow Shot Sunday 33 - Nicaragua
















Nicaragua is a country full of baseball fans, and most seemed to be supporting the New York Yankees in the World Series last week, judging by the high numbers of NY baseball caps being worn everywhere. Large screens were erected in the streets so fans could sit and watch in the comfort of the cooler air. Granada, a beautiful colonial town in Nicaragua, has its own baseball field where players love to emulate their heros, encouraged by high numbers of spectators both on the bleachers, and peering through the wire mesh fence. This roadside shack serving drinks sits at the edge of that baseball field. Don't those three red bar stools look particularly friendly and inviting??

Yes they do look inviting! I love their worn orangey red colour and their skew wiff (spelling-have never written that down before!) angles.

The red stools look inviting, especially after a game. The shadows of the stools are neat too - they seem to have expanded into the size of tables. Illusory shadows here!

Jen said...

The shadow seat look big enough for two.
Happy SSS to you.

Those red stols do indeed look inviting and charming. Great new blog image, although it is rather phallic!

At all angles, yet apparently still holding up under the weight of their customers... though it looks like they're about to collapse...

Thanks for such a marvellous response this week - all comments gratefully received and treasured - there was just something about those lopsided stools!!
