A bit of color

Hey Harriet's Shadow Shots


I finally found my first colored shadow...
Light pole at Lake Merritt, Oakland, California

(See March 17th post for non-shadow shot of light pole)


“In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.”

~ Marc Chagall

That's a beautiful quote and one I'd never have attributed to the artist. What a nice way to start the day!

Different, very cool photo!

Sweet Repose said...

Yes, a beautiful quote, fits quite well with Australia's Harmony Day. It almost looks like a face glaring back...have a great weekend Charmaine!

It does look like a face. Very neat. I love the Trux shot, and the branches in their pots, too!

Reminds me of lantern festival at our end!

Tom Hilton said...

Lovely shot. Brings back memories of when I lived a block from Lake Merritt.

Hope you had a great time in our fair city (SF)!

What a lovely shot - and how clever of you to get some colour in that shadow. Beautiful quote as well.

That is a lovely lantern face! and I love the colors! I got one of those sometime back, the sun through a blue candleholder and it was neat! Thanks! Happy SSS!

Hey Harriet said...

That's so cool! I love the funny little lamp face. Lamp is looking a bit grumpy to me. Kind of how I look first thing in the morning before coffee :)

That is so cool! It looks like it's lit up with a face like a sort of jack-o-lantern.

I like the Chagall quote, too.
