Photo of the Week - Shadows


The theme for this week's challenge was "shadows" and since yesterday was dark and gloomy, I set up this still life with a spotlight to get some pretty red shadows indoors. Not great, but not terrible, I guess.
However as I walked past my studio door this morning and saw the sunlight streaming in the window I was thrilled to see some "real" shadows! Lots better, don't you think? Thanks, Linda, for a fun challenge!

What a beautiful vase! I love the color red...I do like the second picture a lot, sunlight in a room always makes for it's own artful design.

Thanks, everyone, and yes Jennifer that is a little red bird. It's easier to tell in the first photo, but its shadow got lost in the second one.
