Shadows at the Villa


An afternoon scene at an historical Villa in Parktown, Johannesburg (shot whilst on a Heritage walk).  
I just loved the red geraniums in the classical pots, the classical balustrade and of course, the shadows
  really added dimension to the scene.

Love that geranium too and the pots. I have geranium but not in that type of pot. Love to get a couple one day.

Great shadow shots

This picture pops... bright white, bold red and playful shadows! I would love to be strolling through this pretty court.

Classic veranda shots, would love to see the inside of this old structure. The geraniums really make the stark white of the S.African historical setting pop!

Looks like a greeting card to me. Love the contrasting trees versus stark white fencing.

Lots of contrast here, the white balustrade against the shadows and red geraniums. Great shadow shot.
Sunlight, even from the other side of the world I can feel the sun in this.

Such a pretty picture...the white railing and geraniums are gorgeous, and, of course the shadows are so pleasant. Nice...

The red geraniums are lovely in these white pots. They add punch to the photo,

Great shadow shots! What a pleasant, relaxing place to visit and well done to the gardeners who thought to plant red geraniums.
