Shadow Shot Sunday 115 - Cap D'Ail, France


















The French Riviera is full of wonderful Belle Epoque villas where Royalty, film stars, and writers used to stay and enjoy the most beautiful views of the Med with its stunning coastline and unmitigated sunshine....


















My new home Cap D'Ail boasts a number of such gorgeous abodes as well as the unmitigated sunshine until 8.30pm at night - so the shadows are pretty striking too. Here are some distinctive wrought iron Belle Epoque gates casting their swirly shadows on the pavements where us commoners walk by...

These take shadows to a whole new level!
Glad to see that the eagle has landed and is already taking good stock of her new environment.

When molten hot, iron can be formed into such neat shapes, although at the cost of much effort (hand held sledge hammers). Yet, the shapes are ours to enjoy, the shadows even more stylish than the fence. So nicely captured, you live in a place of great style!

Wherever there are shadows, there is simplicity, Catherine. You'll find plenty in your new home!


IF I HAD A SHADOW

If I had a shadow as big as the sky,
I never would fear, and I’ll tell you why:

My shadow would save me from dragons and things
That fly in the night with terrible wings;

My shadow would keep me away from the beast
That sniffs in the west and sniffs in the east

Hungry for children who play all alone,
Hoping to feast upon blood, upon bone;

My shadow would be my protector and knight
To keep fear at bay, to banish all fright.

I’m so glad my shadow is always nearby,
Though it’s not nearly as big as the sky!

Beautiful pictures. Wrought iron makes such wonderful shadows. The gates and fences always have wonderful designs that make very interesting shadows. Plus I think the fences are very classy. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
