Shadow Shot Sunday – at the Vault

IMG_20150130_115201

Heather drove downtown on Friday and we had lunch at The Vault which is a restaurant in a converted Mid-Century Modern bank building. The building features not just a spiral staircase (for staff only) but an exterior with the old ¬†patterned concrete blocks which makes for interesting shadows. The restaurant follows through with mid century modern decor and you can order craft cocktails from the 50’s and 60’s. We of course didn’t have a cocktail but we had a great lunch.

Shadow Shot Sunday – Bright and Low

This time of year it is pretty cold, seeing how it is January and all, and the sunny days are just beautiful. They may be cold but they are nice and the sun is very low also. I shot this during my daily lunch walk at noon. Notice how low the sun is. In just seven short months the sun will be straight overhead and I’ll be dying from the heat. That’s okay as long as I’m still moving.

Shadow Shot Sunday – Tulsa’s Linnaeus Teaching Gardens

(True Confession Time – This photo is a couple of years old. I am so ashamed! But how can you do a post about the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens without a picture of Carl Linnaeus? The rest of the photos are just a couple week old, honest, really, yes really.)

A couple of weeks ago I found myself with a few minutes to spare between engagements so I went through the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens at Woodward Park here in Tulsa. It is a lot of garden shoehorned nicely into a relatively small space. It has also got lots of shadows.

(The couple on the left were courting the 21st century way: Texting!. Holding hands is so 20th century.)

The entrance is very inviting and shady. You can just barely see Carl way down at the end of the walk.

There are tables and chairs for relaxing.

And benches.

(Maybe here is where I tell you that the gardens are now closed until Mother’s Day. Sorry.)

And stone seating areas.
