Shadow Shot Sunday: shadows in Moscow

Our August holiday with Viking River Cruises in Russia was full of photo opportunities. One of my favorites is this first shadow-shot. (You can enlarge it if you like.) Partly in sun and partly in shade, this young lady and her friend relax on the dock, with their feet up, as a local canal boat prepares to take a small load of passengers for a tour of Moscow by water.

The onion shaped domes are still the neatest thing I see, the Russian architecture so unique. so nice. We think of the cold Russian winters, so we are not familiar with the beautiful summer. Such a trip!

Thanks for the Russian tour. I am quite sure it is someplace I will never get to in real life. After all the media during the cold war, I had a much different picture in my mind of Russia. - Margy

I know that you favor the first of the shadow shots, but I think they are all enchanting!

SHADOW, SHADOW
(With apologies to William Blake)

Shadow, shadow lurking dark
In a corner of the park,
What immortal eye can see
Your transcendent symmetry?
