A shadowy find

I know that this isn't a view of one particular, isolated shadow, but the game that the sunlight and shadows are playing here was really mesmerizing to me when I found them on Friday! Walking down a busy Jerusalem street, my friend and I suddenly saw this enchanting cemetery through a door off to the left. What a find! Jerusalem is like that, with all sorts of ancient secrets tucked away in places you'd never suspect, but still, it really took me by surprise. What a treat!




Feel free to click on the photo, to get a closer view!


Despite the ambiguity, I'm posting this to Shadow Shot Sunday, hosted graciously at Hey Harriet. Go check it out - it's my very favorite meme, and I'm sure you'll love it too! Have a great week, everyone!

The interplay between light and shadow seems so beautiful in a place we associate with sadness. However, it is almost as if the glow from the sky above at least allows any mourners the happy magic of heaven's glow on them. So nicely captured!

It is indeed beautifully captured, Toby! I love it! And Ralph's observation is, I feel, very true! Whatever, It's a delightful shadow shot for the day! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

A SEEKER OF SHADOWS

A seeker of shadows one day
Asked shadows to come out and play:
“O shadows, my dears,
Despite all my fears,
I hope you will not run away.”
