Hôtel du département


I really liked the shadows of the trees dancing on the Yvelines Department administrative building last weekend! (Versailles is "county" town of the Yvelines).

Bien aimé les ombres des arbres.

Me again re your question about no photography: This shop is doing what vendors at some arts and crafts fairs do - forbid photography. They have had experiences which indicate that people photograph their work (ideas/creativity) and reproduce it as their own...

Sad, but true...

Lowell said...

Thanks for explaining the relationship between Versailles and Yvelines.

Those kinds of shadows always make me rather dizzy...but it's a very cool shot!

J'aime bien aussi ces ombres particulierement sur la 1ere photo.
Merci pour ta reponse. Je n'ai jamais beaucoup etudie les possibilites de blogger.
Bon weekend !!

This is a super creative shot.

I don't know what it is about it, but I love shadows like this. They bring to mind the wonderful word, "dappled." Dappled dappled dappled.

Nice one, Ciel.

The shadows are beautiful! That's the first thing I noticed. :)

Randy said...

You captured these perfectly. Happy Weekend!

Like Jack, I love dappled light. For an art competition recently, I tried to paint a street scene from Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, that I had photographed dappled light on the street.

The trees have lost all their leaves already?!

Ils ont pas peur de se faire de la pub !

Sharp shadows of a low sun, typical of this season. You really got the best of them.

The shadows paint some great lines! The counseil certainly uses BIG posters!

Kaori said...

The shadows are so wild! The posters on the walls are quite interesting, too.

Sur la première photo il y a encore assez de feuilles pour que les ombres cachent les murs. Bientôt, les arbres seront nus, et les murs decouverts..

Pas mal d'ombres sur la qualite de vie! lol

The trees cast indeed a nice shadow contrasting with the walls. Looks like a nice place!
God bless you!

On se croirait beaucoup plus au sud!

So lovely...

EG Wow said...

I love to watch dancing shadows too. :)

I love these shadows too Ciel, not sure why, but the best shadow shots seem to be in Autumn, actually I do know why, it's because the trees are becoming bare and more interesting.

Gunn said...

just beautiful!
Love the light in your images!

Have a nice weekend!
