The Shadow Dance

Photobucket
A shadowy street scene in Zacatecas, Mexico

Along old walls shadows dance,
Not in Germany or France,
But in sunny Mexico—
See them prancing to and fro!

TAKE AIM AT THE SHADOWS!


There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.
- Nelson Mandela (1918-

MMT this is a wonderful picture not only for the shadows but for the exposed brick, a favourite of mine .. the staircase with the private gating .. the subtle but beautiful colours of the house paints ..the decorative motif and balconies on the blue house .. it is all wonderful: )
Now if only all that "busy" wiring was absent ?
It would be perfect !
Joy
PS .. I appreciated the little ditty of a poem too : )

I love old shots like this ~ there is always a story, and the shadows clue you in a bit more to what else you are missing!!
Happy SSS!

They do indeed look like they are dancing.

Wow, we don't see too many turquoise buildings here in Connecticut. ;-)

Looks like you were there on a lovely day. Here everything is cloudy and gray.

Thanks for hosting, MMT.

Great artwork created by the weathering paint on the walls! A fascinating mix of light and shadow in the streetscape!

I love the colours in this image, and the shadows are so crisp and clear, love those steps on the right hand side and the shadows in there..very intriguing makes me want to go up them and see what's inside.

MMT... I love all of your street shots from Mexico. These shadows are indeed dancing amongst the walls. This is the year I make it to Mexico for sure.
Thanks for hosting SSS2 this week and for being one of the organizers. We all have fun doing Shadow Shots and visiting each other. Glad you are keeping it alive.

Peace
