Were you teleported to Singapore where there is no graffiti and people obediently used the overhead bridges? LOL

Once I was in malaysia, I was with some locals, we got off the train, they tell me, just quickly cross the rail tracks, don't bother with the overhead bridge. LOL

There's so much to see here, not just the shadowa. I love all the textures and patterns.

Nice shot. I like the difference in the shadows, straight and serrated.

This picture is stunning. Your photography is lovely and I've so much to learn.

I've never participated in Shadow Sunday. Wonder if it's too late to submit an entry, so will go take a look.

I remember your Pompeii pictures from a few days ago and became a follower that day. I so love travel!

The composition is fantastic, I really like it, Francisca.
By the way, the plant is a Euphorbia trigona. :-)

I was so focused on looking at the shadows of the cactus that It took a while for the other wonderful ones to seep into my brain! Lovely.
