A few weeks ago, while stopping by the office to drop off supplies, I decided to walk around a bit. It was such a nice sunny day. Just across the street is the Old Courthouse, it is a very pretty area. On one side is a long courtyard with a gazebo which is often used for photos after weddings held in the Courthouse as well as a memorial area. (I took photos here too and will post them on a later date). The other side of the Courthouse has a small park and here is where I discovered several wonderful shadows. It was a Saturday and few people were out and about in the Courthouse area. I was able to walk around and take photographs without any interruptions and without people getting in my shots.
This is a view of the side of the old Courthouse. The fire escape was casting its shadow on the side of the building.
I was able to get a close up shot of the shadow.
At the end of the shadow was a doorway. I first noticed the rounded archway over the door, then I saw the iron decorative section above the door inside the arch. It too was casting shadows.
Near the back of the Courthouse is another building that houses the Drug Task Force and the Emergency Management Offices. This is the handicap ramp leading into that building. It too was creating shadows.
Here is a street view of the Task Force Building and the Courthouse courtyard. We often hear children playing in this area. A daycare is just around the corner and they often bring the children to the courtyard to play. It is a totally fenced in area with trees, flowers and a couple of benches and concrete tables.
This was written on the sidewalk between the courtyard and the neighboring Church.
I could tell that other things had been written/drawn there also, but they had been partially washed away.
The gate leading into the area had small shadows as well and the stepping stone path to the benches under the trees was a very peaceful and serene area.
I rather enjoyed being able to walk around in this area by myself. This is usually a very occupied area, with people going back and forth between the buildings, not to mention the children playing here.
