Ye Old Santa Fe Building
Yes, as promised, a continuation from last weeks post in regards to an early morning opportunity to capture images of a sleepy Santa Fe for my Shadow Shot Sunday friends!
Potted plants for the sake of creating a decorative barrier to keep unwanted vehicles out of the Santa Fe plaza area. It was the weekend before Spanish Market, so the town was 'bracing' itself for the deluge of tourists and art collectors. I overheard an employee in a restaurant commenting to a friend that they were considering quitting their job there or running away just so that he could avoid the mobs of people that descend on the town for the weekend.
As you can probably tell, this planter had some corn growing in it. The shadow reminds me of a corn maiden...
It is a shadow cast by a sculpture, for sure. Perhaps you can guess what the sculpture is of?
In posting this picture, I just now noticed the wonderful cracks (or, more like rifts) in the sidewalk. Would've made for great images in themselves. Maybe next time.

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Hey Harriet. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2010 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.
