I am always fascinated by the shapes that shadows project onto the ground (or wall, as the case may be) for with the passing of clouds or the rotation of the earth, they can be there and gone before you know it, yet while they are there they can be so very beautiful. I have been spotting some nice ones to share with you, so here goes…
Acacia trees are among my favourite, for they have fresh green leaves that allow dappled sunlight through. Just as dappled is their shadow, with different hues of shade if you look closely (above).
Visible from the Cute Suite lounge, are the spikes projected on the wall by a not so spiky balcony railing. More about the Cute Suite this coming Friday – don’t miss it!
I recently spotted the fire basket on the wall of the Santa Maria del Mar. I’d never noticed it before, despite having been to visit this lovely church many times, to delight in its minimal yet gorgeous interior. It is an article that is no longer used to shed abundant light in the darkness, for nowadays we have potent lanterns or street lights, yet, despite its simplicity it is a beautiful object, once made from wrought iron.
Simple shapes can offer great shadows, such as these two fences (above and below). Do you like them?
Gaudí’s works are renowned for their beauty and uniqueness, but have you ever observed the shadows they create? I love the shadows of this candelabra (below) which reminds me of Arabic calligraphy – simply gorgeous.
And just like shadows are there and gone, so has this post come to an end. But not to worry! I’ll be back tomorrow with a visit to a new museum in an old palace that has been restored and is now open to the public. Fins demá!
