Street scene

By xwang
Contribution to Saturday shadow day from my old hometown.
The wall is newly built, it blocks my way to go "home",..
There was no wall when I lived on the right side of the wall in the eastern district of Beijing. The residential area was demolished for whatever the reasons the government wanted, it is a car park now,.. When I heard that they might demolish more of the old area, I went to back to take some photos for records.
I was ill equipped, my little camera was struggling to handle the strong light contrast,... ended with a lot of noises on the shadow part, so I have to turn a lot of them into B&W.
Thanks for viewing, have a nice weekend, despite there might not be shadows everywhere today,.. It's raining here in Retford.Grin

Very strong shadows, so the wall has proved of some use to you after all.

Almost missed this one, Jasmine! An eerie scene - the shadow seems different from the person so it looks a bit scary!
