Shadow Shot Sunday 113 - East Village




















Go to the East Village in NY and immerse yourselves in the tranquil oases of the community gardens which provide serene havens from the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. Find a quiet corner like this one, sit on the bench, gaze at the rock sculpture...and just enjoy the peace of this dappled retreat.

"Dappled" is the perfect word to describe your shadow shot today!

COMPADRES

Shadows above me,
Shadows below;
Some shadows swift and
Some shadows slow;
All of these shadows,
It’s plain to see,
Are my compadres—
Sweet company!

Have a terrific Sunday.

What a terrific capture, Catherine! And such a wonderfully peaceful place -- and int NYC!! These days we all need places like this! I love the word "Dappled" for this one, too! Have a great week!

Wonderful shadow shot and it makes me miss the Village (being an ex-New Yorker). It even feels like the Village! :D
Wow, that was a shift to go from Mexico back I assume home to NYC!
Thanks for sharing...
Hugs,

Cool Catherine! Few people think of NYC as a peaceful haven, but as you say, the village has it's quiet nooks and crannies!

Any time! Have only been to NYC once and it was truly a dream come true. Would have welcomed a quiet corner such as this to rest my blistered feet. Next time, I guess, should I be so lucky.

Mexico, San Francisco, New York, London... quite the travelling summer ! No wonder you were looking for some shade and shadows to relax in there... Bon voyage for the last leg of the trip, or are you going to get to France via Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Vienna, Venice, Florence ???

Very lovely. NY has a lot of beautiful green spaces that are so unexpected in such a big city.
