Yes.................the sun shone SmileSmile
Can't remember when I last got a Saturday shadow on the day SmileSmile
I had a delightful hour walking around the city centre after I had been to a meeting and even got to use my OAP bus pass for the first time - so more than one rare appearance today.
Thanks for looking
Helen

So glad you've seen t he sun at last, Helen Smile. It gave you some great shadows, too, more than I could manage, because of the gale blowing. Carol

Yes, real light and real shadows at last!
Love this - a strong linear composition with those little faces bringing life and happiness into it.

One of best graphics I have seen you upload Helen ( and you have produced many very good ones ) Strong shapes and shadows with the action in the top right indicating that the image is a photograph not an illustration.
