I took this at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church on Saturday. Shot in BW, I thought it a pretty good BW study of light, shadows and lines. It is also the title of not one but two books and also a recent film. The title authors are Carolyn Reeder who published hers in 1989 and it is a children's novel. The second author is Jacqulin Thomas whose book was just published, at least in paperback, in January of 2006. Hmmm. Someone is going to be suing someone, I suspect. Hope it's not me, I'm broke!

Window shades? Nice abstract... very nice gradations.

Interesting abstract - I find myself wishing for a bit more symmetry where the one slat seems smaller than the others in the bottom right. Nice light and tonal range, though.

good idea, but wish the shades had been positioned better. Some slats are not even, and others angled more.
