Contradictions

Contradictions
I'm calling this shadow shot "Contradictions".

Why?

Hmmm....soft curves of a shadow that only exists when the sun is casting light onto the source of the shadow which is a wrought iron table. The soft curves against the hard, angled surface of the block wall which is always there. Dark against light. The shadow and the wall seem to be contradictions of each other on so many levels.

But the real attraction for me as it is in many of the images I capture have to do with texture and patterns from the light and from the surface. But, I think you already know that!

How true, the twisting gentle swirls against hard straight lines of the brick, look like ivy trailing up a wall.
