Shadow Shot Sunday 64 - Tlalpan















Some of my favourite shadow shots include wrought iron, so you can imagine my sheer delight when I stumbled upon this collection of Mexican rustic furniture in a park in the beautiful neighbourhood of Tlalpan in the South of the city....















The designs on the chairs, tables, lectern, and benches included these lovely horseshoes which left such lovely, curvy twisty shadows. Here is an overview of the whole collection so you can see where the close-ups came from.....















For more fun with shadows check out Shadow Shot Sunday over at Hey Harriet. Enjoy!! Sadly this will be my last shadow shot for the next six weeks, so it will have to last you!! Small Fish is off on vacation swapping the Big Taco for the Big Smoke and the Big Apple - check out tomorrow's post for more details.....

The iron furniture is of an elegant, lacy design. It sits under the sun and leaves shadows that almost seem like calligraphy drawn by the sun. Nice!

Once again, just beautiful Shadow Shots! The fine iron work is one of my favorite things about Mexico. (That & maybe a little Jose Cuervo!)
