Shadow Shot Sunday #8 - Forsyth Park Fountain



An old live oak and its shadows frame the Forsyth Park Fountain in Savannah, Georgia on a late fall day. Over 150 years old, the fountain is a popular gathering spot on hot Savannah afternoons.

Gorgeous shadows, Moe! What a great capture! Brought back memories of my visit to Savannah years ago. It is a beautiful city!

Enjoy your weekend!

I thought I recognized that fountain. We visited Savannah
in '06.
You caught a beautiful shadow.

This is a beautiful park, the shadows to cool us down from the heat and a lovely fountain that allows us to feel cool. A great city, a wonderful park!

What a beautiful fountain surrounded by lovely shadows! As I visit today, I'm reminded you asked recently at Sacred Ruminations how I put 'frames' around the photos in my mosaics. I don't see an email address so I'll try to explain here. First, I use Photoshop Elements to create the mosaics so that each photo is on a separate layer. Next I add stroke outlines to each photo ... again on separate layers. At this point everything looks 'flat' but then I add 'beveled' edges to each of the stroke outline layers and 'drop shadows' to all the underlying layers and that's what gives the appearance of 'frames' ... Hope this makes sense. If you have further questions, feel free to drop me an email and I'll do my best to answer.
Hugs and blessings,

That's a lovely picture. I like the way the light is captured in the fountain.

Lovely shot-I can see why people would gather there in the heat! I sat on the edge of one of the fountains in Trafalgar Square on a very hot day in the summer and it was bliss!

After tomorrow(first day of winter), I'll be counting down to spring, thanks for the reminder.

Have a wonderful Christmas!
