The subtlety of the smaller, softer shadow, coupled with the bolder linear shadows--pure magic!

Autumn said...

Wonderful shot David, I love the very distinct shadows of the window frame against.

Gawdess said...

I like the bright, bright colours and the faint, oddly antenna like shadow, like an alien peering in.
Thanks for noticing my stix pic!

Mushy said...

I've been accused of having my camera strapped to my leg at all times...you and I should draw on each other someday!

Mima said...

Love this picture, really geometric with the branch breaking things up in just the right way.

Seamus said...

Nice study on the shadows!

ExpatKat said...

Amazing where one can find great 'kodak moments!'

This is a stunning capture David...
You asked about Skywatch.. if I don't hear anything from Dot I will set up Mr Linky as soon as you let me know you are ready.. ;o)

I liked your cricket comment.. ashes to ashes.. dust to dust came to mind.

Rosie said...

You took a photo as you were ordering your meal?? It's a lovely shot.

jillie said...

It looks very peaceful. Nice picture David.

Momma said...

I second what gawdess said - looks like a little Martian coming to check out your dinner. ET ordered to go?

Peace - D

Wonderful shot David, the eye that captures something from nothing.

How is it when out eating - you get a shot still sitting and I have to rush outside changing lens at the same time.lol.

billy said...

Lovely shot. My first vist to your site, I must get out more (with camera!)

It's beautiful David. So simple, but so elegant at the same time. The plant makes it for me. Have a great WW. :)

CrazyCath said...

Speechless. On Wordless Wednesday. When I'm typing in Tuesday...

Simple, subtle, perfect lighting, peaceful...

OK then. Not speechless. Those that know me would never believe I could be speechless. They're right. Great shot.

Tammy said...

What a beautiful and peaceful picture!

Nap Warden said...

Looks very fall-like! Love the colour and the sharp and fuzzy shadows.

You find the most amazing shots! :) A+ for the day!

Julie at Virtual Voyage said...

David - beautiful shot. Wish I was there!

...If you've not seen it,
House of Marrakesh and My Paintbox are running a doors theme (today 12th); - looks like a lot of interesting entries. Details on mine
if you need 'em.

Lovely! Now I see a religious cross (disregarding the lower horizontal shadow line).

ExpatKat said...

Thanks for swinging by my blog, David. The blogroll mention is fine.

quilly said...

It's not just the shadow. The color is what makes this photo pop. That brilliant orange bright to mind the last flare of sunset. Beautifully captured, David.

CK-II said...

Nice shot. Happy WW! :)

Janice Thomson said...

What a phenomenal photograph. It looks like a Japanese shoji screen - awesome David.

Jen said...

Just another day in the life of the McMahon family! I am cracking up here. ;-)

nitebyrd said...

Beautiful picture. The colors are wonderful.

Lee said...

Very pretty, David. Kind of looks like black embroidery on a Chinese Red spread. Love the intensity of color.

Cheers!

Jamie Dawn said...

Really nice shot!
It's great to see something like this and be able to capture it.

catsynth said...

What an interesting photo. Very simple shapes and colors, but then one sees subtle shades and textures, and the other shadows.
Thanks for sharing this. Happy WW
