Shadow Shot Sunday

And this is the arcade of the beautiful Palais Royal, 
in Paris—where you'll find arches and gates—and 
shadows neatly lined up (just how I like them).

[See more Shadow Shots here.]


  1. Another dreamy shot Alexa!
    & I love the stone walkway.

  2. I love it. There is that kind of aerial perspective where the shadows fade out and disappear in the distance as they approach the vanishing point. It took a few moments to figure out the hanging lamp shadows. (At first, from a sideways angle, I thought it was a front view of a rider on the horse from yesterday).

    The image holds centuries of history yet the location remains a vibrant living part of the most sophisticated international capital of today’s world. Allow me to be redundant: I love it.

  3. So beautiful, and to think I once took it for granted. I walked this way every evening after work....there used to be a very prim and well-dressed old lady who would approach people and ask them for a franc....

    I love these shadows and columns.

  4. I couldn't help myself looking for Audrey Hepburn's shadow, hiding behind one column ! Great perspective and thank you for reminding me how lucky I am to live so close.
    Sometimes you just forget to see the beauty in your usual environment.
    Have a nice Sunday and glad to see you back, TG !

  5. Amazing archeticture and a great capture of its grandure of light and perspective.

  6. Beautiful, really beautiful! Great photo!

  7. Thanks, all! I really love this place, and I'm glad you do too.

  8. The shadow hunters
    implore, “Give us light, give us
    eyes to see—and more!”

  9. You brough tears to my eyes with this one. Sniff. I miss it so.
