An accidental shadow shot

There I was a couple of weeks ago, looking for some interesting windows or doors to photograph for Mary's weekly Wednesday meme: Window Views, and Doors, too! Something struck me about these windows, somehow, and I grabbed a quick shot. Only later, while I was downloading them onto my computer, did I realize that I had actually found a great specimen for Tracy's meme at Hey Harriet - Shadow Shot Sunday. What a lovely surprise! Here's the big winner:

 
 Nice one, right? As always, feel free to click on the photo to enlarge it, and get a better shot.
And do check out Hey Harriet to see more fun shadowy photography. That's where I'm going, right now! Happy Sunday, everyone!

The shadows of the curvaceous tree seem to surround the arches over the pair of windows. The lack of angles and the arcs make this a wonderful shadow!

What a lovely capture, Toby! I love the delicate pattern the limbs/branches leave silhouetted against the building and the reflections in the windows! Delightful! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

That's awesome! I love how the tree branch shadows are so delicately framing the big windows. Looks like a charming old building too!
