Long Shadow

Hanging Basket

Outside the front door of a terraced house, a hanging basket filled with flowers casts a long shadow in the sunlight of a summer afternoon.

This is one in a row of similar Victorian houses that have frontages painted in different colours. As you can see, the house that the basket belongs to is pale blue. However, the basket’s shadow slants a long way over the adjoining, yellow-fronted house.

Please don’t ask me what sorts of flowers are in the basket! I have no idea… I’ve never been much good at that sort of thing. I have trouble telling roses and dandelions apart.

Architectural Detail

The painting is a piece of what I think of as architectural detail. To be honest, though, this one is much more about the basket and the shadow than it’s about the houses.

I wrote about my fascination with architecture in a recent blog post. “Long Shadows” is a good example of what I described in the post.
