It’s been a while since I took part in a Shadow Shot group post. Maybe because Seattle hasn’t seen sun in so long and without sun, it’s hard to find shadows. Lucky for me, I was recently in Florida: The Sunshine State. Here are a few photos that are distinctly tropical–and shadowy.
For me, anything Thunderbird is such a throwback to the America of yesteryear. I picture a stylish, early 60s-era couple–she’s wearing cat-eye sunglasses, a pretty dress and white gloves; he has on a tailored suit with a narrow tie. They’re rolling into the drive-in in a 1963 Cadillac convertible. It probably never happened, but I like to think it did. This is the back of a drive-in screen in Fort Lauderdale.
These trees were growing outside the entrance to a condo complex in Pompano Beach. To residents, they’re probably nothing special, but they’re so foreign and different to a cold-weather gal like myself. I love how they represent warmth and sunshine to me.
The sunsets in Florida were picture-perfect. Every night the sky lit up with gorgeous shades of pink and blue. I love the pastel painted buildings in Florida but they paled in comparison to the sunsets.
