Shadows exist where the light is. The stronger the light, the more pronounced the shadow.
The dramatic lighting on late afternoon is a great opportunity to capture beautiful shadows. I’m walking on a sunny afternoon in the park. The sun goes down to the horizon and spreads long shadows everywhere. I see my shadow cast on an old fence and, as every time, I think I’m just a traveling shadow through life! Just thoughts…..
“My shadow in my art is one way I trace who I was and where I have been. My shadow and I have been on a journey for quite a while now!” Angela Cartwright
Throughout life, the most faithful companion is our own shadow. Do you agree?
Shadows rather remind me of a quote by Bruce Lee: He who knows not that he walks in shadow will not seek light.
An interesting approach, interesting indeed.
Wow! Nice photo!
Love the contrast there!
You’ve a good companion 🙂
Thank you, dear friends! Maya is my best friend!
Thank you, Carol! You know that Maya is always with me. Her shadow will always be with my shadow!
as I am mostly indoors with the lights off, I don’t see my shadow much
You love the darkness too much! Go outside and enjoy the sun.?
with my skintone? not a good idea…
I have one photo with my shadow but I did not plant it that way. Planning needs knowledge and you seem to have it.
It was not a planned photo. The shadow caught my attention by chance. Maybe one day you will show us your shadow!
I have created a post on that and you will soon see it.
I look forward to seeing your post!
I got a laugh with the question about the faithful companion. If you have noticed, that faithful companion is not around when it is dark. LOL.
As I said “Shadows exist where the light is.” When it is dark outside the light comes from the street lamps! Even then the shadow is with me! Have you never seen your shadow in the darkness of the night? I did!?
This is the sort of shadow that Plato would have had plenty to talk about.
I would be curious what he could say about this shadow.?I remember Plato’s Theory of Forms.
It was the story of the Cave that prompted my comment – the notion that people who only saw shadows on a wall would imagine that they are seeing reality. This was behind his Theory of Forms – that all we ever experience are impressions of perfect reality and not reality itself.
Philosophy is not my passion. I just remember what I learned in school. Many years have passed since then! Thank you for reminding me about Plato.
What a cool idea, you are so creative. I see little Maya as well. Great quote and attitude.
Maya’s shadow is always next to my shadow! ?
