Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Patio lattice

You saw a similar photo of the patio in sepia a few days ago, but these shots are full of strong, afternoon shadows for
When we first moved into our house 26 years ago, the back yard was full sun as the tree-line that runs along the back edge of the homes on our street were sparse and young.
I designed a patio with a roof for some shade but wanted it to remain open and blend in with the outside. My husband mixed and poured many bags of concrete to form the foundation. We enlisted the help of a friend who completed the roof and trim work.
Pardon the moss and algae...
I will be revving up the pressure washer soon!
I don't have a powerful one so the job moves along rather slowly.
During this mundane job, ones mind may be in need of some diversion as described here.

Excellent Shadow Shots! We had lattice trim all around our old home in Central Phoenix. My hubby kept hitting his head on the trim around the carport and conveniently "forgot" to put it back up after painting one summer. Good memories. hehe.

The shadowy views eliminate all moss on the sides, the chain-link look of a shadow elegant. The photo artist at work I see, the subject lovely the effects awesome!

I adore shadows and patterns. I guess it reflects in the medium in which I choose to work. Your's are beautiful. jan

You're right, I did see that lattice work in sepia just a few days ago!

It's such a pretty patio. And the lattice provides nice shadows for you to capture.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
