The lighting on the wall

Our sun is out again (!), leaving sort of a reverse shadow on the wall.

Hey Harriet said...

I see the lighting on the wall (soemtimes I don't ;) - Great post title and a lovely photo. Have a wonderful week!

Super shadows!

Robin said...

What a great window niche! So much more character than an ordinary modern window.

Yaelian said...

Beautiful (almost) minimalistic photo!

Kate said...

This looks like a great pace to curl up with a book.

Nice to have the sun back after a little snow, I guess. I like the shot very much.

VP said...

I like the idea of the reverse shadow, I never thought of this...

I can just imagine sitting in this room reading psalms by the light of this window. Divine!

Have you heard from Father Adam? He has been noticeably absent lately!

Great shot. I love the title too!

Very nice and inviting!

crederae said...

this is beautiful Dina, I have always been transfixed by the writing of light on the wall -it is so simplistic and yet so inclusive of all at the same time.

that is a beautiful alcove. Where is it located?

pass the popcorn(inside joke)

Beautiful, just beautiful. Briljant shot.

Pietro said...

Very fine shadow shot, Dina. I like the rectangles of the sun on the wall (which I imagine thick) of the house.

Crafty Green Poet said...

beautifully simple room and lovely shadow...

Sweet Repose said...

I'm wondering how old these beautiful walls are in this ancient city...great shot!!!

Cassie said...

No need for any wall decorations here---just some sun outside! Very nice shadow shot.

Dimple said...

That is a beautiful photo. I love the lines of the walls and window, and the shadow accents them wonderfully.

Sara said...

I like the simplicity of this shot...the simple lines and colors. Very nice.

We had sun today too.

Jew Wishes said...

Great shot, and not only of the reverse shadows, but the view through the window.

Gunn White said...

A very nice shot!
Elegant and simple. Beautiful composition and light.

Dina said...

Shalom to you all and thanks for sharing your impressions of the window.

VP, I was trying to decide if this qualifies as a shadow, so I just made up the term "reverse shadow."
It seems to work. :)

Jan, Father Adam is back on the blog today. Yay! There is nothing quite like Monastery Daily Photo.

Crederae, it is a secret place. (Sorry.)

Pietro, yes, very thick stone walls, ala 12th century.

Sweet Repose, medieval. But these walls are far from the city.

Wishing you all sun and simplicity!

It looks like a window in a convent, because of the white and bare walls. So simple and peaceful.
