Shadow Shot Sunday

E2 Reflections 02
As I've mentioned before, Embarcadero Center isn't much as an aesthetic whole but it is a never-ending source of interesting shadows. This is on Sacramento, along the southern edge of Embarcadero 2. I think I prefer this one, but there's a black and white version below the fold.

Shadow Shot Sunday: the gift that keeps on giving.

Happy SSS to you.

Shadows, sun and reflections. The winning trifecta! The total looks is an interesting look at an urban-suburban dichotomy, the trees and the buildings in harmony...

This one has everything. Great shadow shot!

I like them both, but in this case I think I actually like the color version just a bit better.

Both very nice, though!

Tom Hilton said...

Thanks, y'all!

Yeah, for me the color--muted as it is--gives the shot a little more life.

What a fascinating Shadow Shot! I'm trying to see it from my laptop in my car, so I'm sure it's even better under better lighting circumstances. Next week I should have my own (limited) connection at the cabin, so will come back to see it then. Happy SSS!

Wonderful play of shadow and reflection! Those skylights create a little bit of magical lighting!

Dimple said...

Wonderful shadows. I haven't been to San Francisco for a long time, your post makes me realize I miss it!

Hey Harriet said...

Nice one! It does look to be a great place for shadow spotting. And some nice reflections too! Enjoy your weekend :)

Beautiful.

Not just shadows but reflections dancing on that pavement.

Isn't it interesting how the whole of something may not be esthetically pleasing, but its pieces can be?

That's a really interesting shot, not only for the shadows, but all the shadowy reflections too. Cool.
