"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."

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

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

  5. 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!

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