Walk Softly, Stranger

Maneuvering the dark corridor from Rite Aid to the parking lot is normally an uneventful experience. But in late afternoon on a long summer day? It's a film noir moment.

Very clever & super cool shot! Nice lanky shadow too. (the ones I've tried come out more opulent about 1/2 way thru - go figure.)

YOU WON'T BELIEVE THIS - VW - rearduca!!!

Is this Daddy Long Legs? Neat picture, Laurie.

Judy Williams said...

WOW!!! So loving everything about this one. The intense contrast and of course the killer shadow. Certainly lends itself to a movie poster for "The Man Who Got Away" or something like that. And it goes without saying (those diagonal lines!)

Happy Saturday.

Birdman said...

Quite a humorous shot. Love it!

You're too much! Is it The Thin Man?

Just thought of one for yesterday: Not many people realize that The Irish Mickey Mouse was buried standing up.

I recognize that person anywhere - it's The Shadow!

However, I prefer the shadow in color.

Alfred Hitchcock is turning over in his grave!!! He desperately wants to come back to earth and make a movie with Laurie!!! Great shot!!!

Ow, this is fun!

It looks like he's holding an umbrella in his hand. With those legs this guy must be quite a basketball player.

Great photo.

Yakpate said...

Absolutely fabulous! And yes, this WOULD make a great movie poster.

Yes, it's true--Gort carried a purse, but only when he was shopping.

Looks like your hiding inside a traffic cone. Come visit, I've got Ramona on the line

ever since they built this place that thruway has been blinding at certain times of the afternoon.

a skylight or two might be useful...but all these years later, I doubt it'll happen.

the pic is great--only the shadow knows!

no kidding---my wv is:
boing

Hanging about in dark corridors, LA, appears to be your metier.

This is a very fine image.

THanks, everybody! I just love the long shadows cast this time of year. You may be subjected to more of them before fall rolls around...

But not tomorrow. Until then!
