Downtown Shadows

Often while walking to the Post Office or the Bank I see interesting shadows and wish that I had my camera. So I started carrying it with me as I do my errands.

Here are a few I found a few weeks ago.

The clock outside the Bank stands tall and casts its shadow on the sidewalk.

Just down from the Bank is a small patio area for one of the office buildings. The light post and trees were calling out to me as I walked by. The light post's shadow reminds me of a pear.

I think that my favorite shadow downtown is the shadow that the iron fence around the Veterans Statue at the old Courthouse casts. Not really sure what it is that I like so much about it.

The way it curves? The length? The way that you can see the details of the fence itself in the shadow? Maybe it is all of those things. Anyway, I hope that you enjoy the pictures. And, be sure visit Hey Harriet to see what unique shadows others have posted this week.


  1. These are great. Especaily the big clock shadow! Well worth taking a camera along the bank/post office run :)

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. What a beautiful town and interesting shadows you found. I love the curved iron fence shadow too.

  3. Oooo...I like that very top one best! You caught the clock at just the right angle.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. I love this post! You live in a beautiful town and should always carry your camera ;>)....thanks for sharing. And Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. I love the clock - it almost appears to be floating.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you take a moment to leave a message or two. I love hearing what you think of my posts!
