Shadow Shot Sunday 81 - Miami's Deco Delights.....





















Recently I visited Miami to check out the cool art deco architecture.....





















I certainly wasn't disappointed with the beautiful curves and pastel shades....





















In fact, I couldn't stop shooting these delightful deco buildings.....





















They are just so so so photogenic if you also get the bright, blue sky.....





















And of course all of these shots have the necessary shadows for Shadow Shot Sunday......















For more fun with shadows around the world, click here for Shadow Shot Sunday.....

I love them! What beautiful buildings and what delightful shadows they make! Love the pastel colors and, of course, the blue skies for a backdrop! Perfect! Have a wonderful weekend, Catherine!

Curves and angles - a sort of geometric prose as the shadows go. These buildings of the 1930s leave a curvaceous and artistic look at the past. Styled back then vs. engineered these days. I know the ones I prefer to look at...

I was thinking this week - when the weather was so dreary here in Ontario - how nice it would be to be in Mexico. :) But I see you found your sun in Miami!

Hey Harriet said...

I love these art deco shadows! I had no idea such buildings existed in Miami! Just another place I'd love to explore now! Happy weekend to you :)

Great buildings! Enjoyed them - I've been to Florida many times, but I can't recall ever going to Miami!
Enjoy your day Catherine!

Thanks for stopping by everyone - and for those of you who don't know, Miami has the largest concentration of art deco buildings in the world - and you can take wonderful architectural tours of the district with guides fron the Art Deco Preservation Society - which are really interesting...

Beautiful shadow shots Catherine! Thank you for your comment - I try not to overdo the family kitten/cat phase but, sometimes, it works! Good to hear from you.
