Jewaicious’ Sunday Scenes 1/22/12

I enjoy taking photographs that display forms of shadow play. I love how shadows can depict and/or convey mood and light, structure and texture. The photographs below were both taken at local parks, one with a lake, and one that has a mountainous background.

Book news:

I will be writing a review of The Emperor of Lies: A Novel, by Steve Sem-Sandberg, within the next couple of days.

I have finished reading Two Rings: A story of love and war, by Millie Werber and Eve Keller.

I have almost finished reading The How & Why of Jewish Prayer, by Israel Rubin.

I am intrigued by the architectural history and by the decisions made regarding Beth Sholom Synagogue, and might just try to locate the book, Beth Sholom Synagogue: Frank Lloyd Wright and Modern Religious Architecture, by Joseph M. Siry, in a local library.

The Modern Jewish Experience in World Cinema sounds like an excellent read.

A Daughter of Two Mothers sounds both heartbreaking and uplifiting.

Have a good week! Be well, take care.

  10. The fence and trellis make for great shadows – the lines are straight and true. These shadows that are so linear that they contrast so well withe the curvy landscape beyond their edges. Neatly captured!

  12. Lovely photos .. and since its cold and grey and rainy and icy here .. I like them even more because they are sunny!

  13. I love the shadow of the pergola .

  14. Great feeling that the shadows are on the move in the first photo encouraged by the powerful wave of visual line into the image! And a lovely compact shadow pattern in the second photo!

  15. Hi there – I have just returned from the wild, woolly and less that wonderful world of wireless only internet – so now I’m catching up.

    Great use of shadows โ€“ I think that they can be really fun to play with โ€“ taking pictures of things that are not really there!
