Let's Take a Shadow Walk!

Photobucket
A section of the perilously steep Paseo de Bufa, Zacatecas, Mexico


Steeper and higher
we follow shadowy paths,
journeying toward light.

TAKE AIM AT THE SHADOWS!

I'd love to walk there!
It's almost like winter here now, -3 and a little bit of snow but next week it'll rain again...
Happy weekend!

Gemma Wiseman said...

The play of sunlight and shadow is wonderful! A very tempting walkway begging for exploration!

Happy shadow hunting and happy weekend everyone!

Looks like a warm day to stroll around.

Interesting location...and the Haiku really speaks to me.

Ms. Becky said...

that looks to be an inviting walk, in spite of the steepness. I'd probably be nervous if I were driving a stick shift up that hill though and had to start again after stopping. Especially if there were a car close behind me! fabulous shot and haiku MMT. thanks for hosting SSS, and happy weekend to you.

Very nicely composed ShadowShot. The touch of green and orange from the buildings give it a touch of flare too. Happy SSS.

Fantastic shadows. Great shot.

TY for coming to dark city of Stockholm.

TY too for keeping the SSS2 alive. I been chasing shadows with Tracy as long as I can remember. First day, she started §:-)

Hope I stay with you ladies, until I go for my retirement.
Keep up the good job.

P.S.
I only had my subtle shadows this coming weeks/months when Europe is still in winter time.

Happy SSS.

Peace,

strange, but seeing sidewalks like this I am mostly happy I don´t use high heels. :)

I like that quote below the shadow photo

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
