Shadow Shot Sunday 58 - Rio Panuco















This week's shadow shot all started with a yellow bus parked in the shade on my street Rio Panuco. I quite liked the detailed patterns of leaf shadows against the bright yellow paintwork...




















It led me to remembering some bright yellow walls and topiary shadows in another part of Mexico City....


















Which in turn led me to remember some other bright yellow walls in the nearby village of Tepoztlan...


















and finally to a wall in San Miguel de Allende which had been turned into a cinema screen emblazoned by a glorious sunset.....

















I hope you have enjoyed blazing the yellow trail with me, which happens to match the glorious summer sunshine we have been enjoying here in Mexico City this week. Not just a feast of shadow shots but a veritable banquet, and there are more over at sumptuous Shadow Shot Sunday. Enjoy!! What colour has been on your mind this week??

The yellow is such a bold and rich canvas for complex and beautiful shadows. The fiery sky is of elegant shadows with a brilliant goldenrod hue. Nice!

I did enjoy blazing the yellow trail with you!! Yellow totally offsets the shadows. (I LoVe what Ralph had to say...if I could have,I would have said the same thing!!) Very cool Shadow Shots.

The shadows look great on yellow. We could use a bit of your Mexican warmth right now. Would you believe it is snowing in May?

It's hard to take shadow shots without letting the shadows overshadow the subject (how many times can I use the word shadow in a sentence?). Great job on these photos!

Ah que lindo amarillo! Color is always on my mind and this week, I've worn a lot of my favorite vivid violet hue.
