For this week’s Photo Challenge, the theme is shadowed and the task is to find the shadows.
I’ve chosen 3 shots taken in the Dorsoduro district of Venice last summer as I love the way the shadow of the trees dapples the wellhead in the centre of the courtyard providing shelter from the midday sun.
The shade softens the harshness of the light, but hides the ornately carved wellhead, only revealing small details in the flashes of sunlight.
Ultimately the tree provides a shady refuge for overheating visitors whilst the wellhead provides a seat to rest their weary feet. An ideal combination for a hot summer day I’d say and I’d love to know what you think so please leave a comment and tell me what your favourite shady spot is!
And if you like these photos have a look at more via the Weekly Photo category in the menu to your right. Ciao for now!
