"Arch-type" shadows

.
The architects of our Supreme Court Building incorporated elements of the many civilizations which contributed to the building of Jerusalem over the ages.
This arched passageway between the courtyard and the offices could remind us of the Roman Cardo in the Old City.
Or perhaps a monastary cloister?
.
But for sure the shadows were shot for Hey Harriet blog's "Shadow Shot Sunday."

Such simplicity... and within beauty.

Meet me where shadows
bow over the passageway
like merry widows.


Carnival of Shadows

It would be a quite sober cloister, but the idea of something Roman fits almost perfectly.

love all the strong geometric shapes in this shot.....

I like such sober architecture better than the sumptuously decorated interiors of some churches. I like the latter as museums but not as places to pray and meditate. Whereas a sober church empties your mind and makes your spirit ready to meditate. At least that's my experience.
The photo is so beautiful, Dina!

It must be a little cooler in the corridor shadows during the hot, sunny days! Nice photo, Dina!

The perspective is beautiful and the shadows very cool.

My thoughts go to either a cloister, or some old university building... Lovely shadowshot!

Beautiful effect and shadows. This reminds me a bit of Turin's arcades, although they are quite different.

the patches of sunlight remind me of sails or sharks fins, a bit like the Sydney Opera House.

Hey Harriet said...

Very nice shadows lurking within such a beautiful building. Your city has some impressive architecture!

Petrea said...

To me there's something so compelling about an archway.
