My contribution to Saturday Shadows.
Have you ever noticed how some shadows take on a life of their own, seeming to have a personality far removed from their object of origin?
I felt like that about this fence shadow on a wall.
It reminded me of a cartoon character, but not any one in particular, more a cross between Felix The Cat, Topcat and Batman. Maybe you have other ideas?
V2 is the original colour version, but I prefer the mono.

This is a great image that you have seen and captured !! I agree that the mono is better. It does look familiar GrinGrinGrinGrin

The shadow cast is even more eye catching than than the source here, Pamela: whilst the B and W version is what all so far prefer, I'm going with V 2.

Yes, you can get some interesting results, and they always look different depending on the time of day. A very well seen image here, Pamela, and it's definitely the mono for me Wink Definitely Batman! Smile

Wonderful! And much more graphic in hard b&w. I love it when shadows take on an identity off their own.
