Tree shadows growing along a wall (à la Edward Hopper)

Somehow these slanted early-morning shadows remind me of Edward Hopper’s “Early Sunday Morning,” which you can see here in the Whitney Museum of Art collection.  That sweep of light washing swiftly down a street, stretching everything in its path into spindly lines across the landscape.  The sharp angles as these shadows encounter and are bent by obstacles of their own.  Such drama in the stillness 🙂
