Shadow Escape

Last Sunday morning was one bright, sunny dawn. It was yellow on yellow, at least here on Free Street. Usually, I don't appreciate a painted brick wall, but this one works. When I came upon this wall, it reminded me of that moment in the Wizard of Oz when the film changes from black and white to color. Pow! Very nice! Get the camera! I will also pass along, at this time, that no poppies were involved in the taking of this photo. I'll be looking at this shot a lot all day today. Another rainy spring outing here in southern Maine today.

  1. Is that a fire escape or a metal walkway that makes those wonderful shadows? ...esp visible after I maxed the photo. My eye caught the colorful window shade below and the potted plants above too.

  4. I love the connection between your photo and the change from b & w to color in The Wizard of Oz. I'd forgotten that.
