Pergula Shadow Patterns

in Shadow Hunters10 months ago (edited)

Ever since I joined Steemit and came across the Photoshadow Contest for the first time, I find myself searching for shadows everywhere I go.

While shopping at one of the newer premier shopping malls in my area called "The Meadows at Lake St. Louis," I came across this impressive architecturally designed area that artistically begged to be photographed.

The vivid cobalt blue colors of the sky peeked between the pergola's dark wooden crossbeam structures as the sun cast shadows on the stone columns and walkway underneath creating a dramatic effect.

That's a shady photography 😁

What beautiful geometric shadows !
Isn't that interesting that when our mind is turned to an idea (like finding shadows), it's like a whole new world is opening its door and abundance of what we seek does show up ! 😊
What if people decide to focus on happiness and every piece of joy, instead of looking to everything that goes wrong...? 😉

What a truly marvelous world that would be!!!🌐

You have such positive insights and uplifting ways of looking at things! @barbara-orenya

Blessings, my friend! And thank you for leaving rays of sunshine on my post!💕🧚‍♀️💫

I wish you good luck. I already wondered if you start looking for shadows once you join. You answered that question. 💕

Thank you for the good luck! @wakeupkitty
You should enter the contest too!💫

@ninahaskin I keep an eye on it but am out of light so hardly a shadow. Thanks for asking. ❤️

Those are some awesome shadows, too! Shadows really do make for great photo compositions. Great stuff!


Thank you very much! I must have missed your compliment earlier -- sorry! Cheers, my friend! @wwwiebe 🍺

I do miss blue skies! Thanks for entering this beautiful shadow shot and for your support of the contest!

Hopefully the sight of warm blue skies does everyone some good!💙

Thank you! This pergula is an outdoor architecture at a shopping mall located in Lake St. Louis, MO. There is a link you can click on to learn more about the mall at the bottom of my post where it says source. Hope this helps too!

Of course I'll search about the information you have provided. Actually I like the cantilever part . 😅 I mean overhanging wooden support. I'm structural engineer.

Good to learn the proper terminology for names of these structures! Thank you for the schooling! @crypto7878 😀

Bang, I did it again... I just resteemed your post!
Week 12 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!
Pixresteemer is also listed as promoter on The Steemians Directory

You're the best! @pixresteemer Thank you!💕

A beautiful combination - wood, stone, sky and shadows :-)

Appreciate the compliment and support!😀
The one thing that's missing is water @bambuka

It can be assumed that the water is somewhere on the left :-)

Haha! I'll leave it to your imagination and not ruin things by disclosing there are no outdoor water structures, my friend😶

Then let it be a saving shadow in the desert LOL

It's obvious you were having a lot of fun (and sun) while taking these photos. Good work, bravo!

You captured a great shadow, Nina.

Have a wonderful week! 💕

Good to see you, Jo, and thanks so much!
Hope you have a great first week of December💫

Very nice shadow welcome to the shadow hunting 🤭

Nice shadow pattern Nina... I love it!

Thanks so much! Join the contest @mers

Yeah, I´ve been shadow hunting, unfortunately we had rain since 3 days and I coudn´t go out so I had to think of creating one in the house. I´ll be posting it soon... Thanks for the encouragement Nina dear.

Excellent plan! I sometimes have to look through my photo gallery to see if I already have a suitable image to use for a particular contest when the weather doesn't allow taking fresh images. I'll drop by to see if you posted! @mers
