The morning sun streaming in the bedroom window.
Les ombres, the shadows

This is gorgeous! (And I love Laurie's comment!!) I love the shadows on your 'chaise noire'. (Remember, 'chaise' is feminine...!)

Bravo, Virginia!

Nathalie said...

My at the post office, you with your chair, looks like the sun inspired us very similar shots. Great minds think alike !!!
Have a great weekend Virginia!

Hi, V. Time to drop a rare comment! I've enjoyed the juxtapositions of shape, light, shade and the mellow colour tones in this week's series.

...noted the poignant comments on the "closed" buildings and the passing of "commercial time" as one corp., gobbles another. I think we of a certain age all feel the same.

Nice lines

D.C. Confidential said...

I love it! Very nice composition, V. Very nice.

Thérèse said...

Straight lines, nothing to read in between... just lines to reflect on. Very nice.

Virginia said...

Oh Bibi,
Merci. That masculine/feminine thing trips me up every time. I have corrected it.

Laurie,
HA! Why yes it is!!!

W.,
Moi??? You know I'm a very early riser. :)

'roon,
"We of a certain age???" Speak for yourself! HA Didn't notice that all my photos had those golden tones this week, but you are correct. Interesting.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I was a little unsure about posting this one. Glad you liked it.

Lovely Shadow Shot.

Kim said...

So very beautiful. I admire your tones from black to white and all the grays in between. Can I sit there and read for awhile?
