The art of shade

Something that caught my eye today...gorgeous metal pergolas from Parasoleil. I am fascinated with the interplay of sun and shade, and a pergola covered with a flower vine just calls me to come and stand underneath...or better, sit and spend some time there!
These images remind me of Robyn, who always brings lovely sun drenched images of gardens to us on her blog...


And, a pergola can be magical in the night too...

Me recuerda en ocasiones a los entramados de las celosías de los árabes en la Alambra, o de los dibujos de la mezquita de Córdoba.

Al final creo que las culturas no están tan lejos unas de otras y cuando tratas de llegar a lo profundo se encuentras muchas similitudes, en este caso estéticas.

These are really incredible. The light patterns are lovely.

I love the interplay between light and shadows as well. Lattice work is my favourite.
