Shadow Shot Sunday 71 - London


















The belief in my mind is that the sun shines much more strongly here in Mexico compared to England, but when I was home in the summer and walking along the Thames towpath at Richmond Lock, you couldn't fault the power of the rays and consequently the shadows....











The ornamental iron railings, signposts and fancy wrought ironwork of the bridge at the lock cast these rather bold shadows on the towpath as I walked along heading for the centre of Richmond... These images may lack the vibrant colour of recent Mexico posts, but for a change I rather like the monochromatic effect, and the stark but striking shapes cast in my home city...

Being that much closer to the equator, the sun in Mexico should be brighter and warmer. The shadows from the wrought iron fence are elegant and not as heavy as the real metal. Nice captures!

Super shadows lovingly wrought from London fences by a British summer sun. Restful for you after the colour and excitement of Mexico City.
