Thankyou all so much for your support for my sculptures series.

I found this interesting painted wall in Alhama de Murcia, Spain.
Since it's Shadows Saturday, I thought this might fit the bill. The shadow is from a street sign, but I thought it fitted in well. Are they dancing or playing a game?
In the other versions (4 in all) you can see that the wall continues with trees and leaves by the same artist, and it's nice to see the work signed and dated.
I personally like the leaves in V3, where the walls overlap.

Pamela.

A splendid piece of artwork which looks so effective in that sunny locale, Pamela: makes a most attractive set of images.
I like the balletic poses in V 1 and the shadow fulfils the Saturday there very nicely.

A rather beautiful mural, and you have captured it well. V1 is a great find for Saturday Shadows. I also like v2 very much...in fact I like them all.

An excellent set and well captured from different angles, Pamela, but v1 is a real beauty. The addition of the shadow makes a game of basketball from the wall art.

Love V1. The shadow creates a net for the players. I can imagine a little mouse-over animation, as the ball flies into it. Wink

Much as I would have admired these images if I had come across them, not sure that it would have occurred to me to photograph them, but then I don't think I could have done them the justice you have.................. So imaginative and of the course your POV makes all the difference. While I know I have a lot to learn about photography some things just can't be taught and a natural eye is one of them I think.

Love all of them, their vibrancy, their energy, their colour.

They do look like ballet dancers in v1, Pamela. V2 looks as if he has adopted a fencing pose.
Amazing to see that these have remained intact and not graffiti-covered after over 20 years.
Can't see that happening many places in the UK.

That shadow of the lamp post (V1) is a great addition to the ball game image. Makes it look like the netball board/net.

Very clever and creative.

Thanks for your comments on my composition. I'm knew at this site and getting used to my new camera. So far uploaded 2 pics, 1 of which is so badly taken I should not have bothered. I'll show a bit more respect to the site and upload well thought out shots

Meanwhile I'll be learning from the well established like yourself.

Thanks and your pics are to really enjoy and learn.
