Shadow & Light -WP Photo Challenge

Time Flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind – Nathaniel Hawthorne

Without light we would have no shadow… without shadow we would not appreciate the light. Lately I have noticed and appreciated the light and shadow contrast and captured it in a few different ways.

I enjoy taking pictures of our shadows. The long lines make our portraits interesting and fun.

Speaking of fun…. I noticed this shadow on our wall one morning. Can you guess what it is?

What the ....? What do you think it is?

Last spring I caught this shadow on a wall and the eerie feel made a cool effect on digital. I posted this one before, but I really like it.

One of my favourite shots of the Shanghai skyline rounds out my pics of shadow and light… the colours are so vibrant and it was rare to capture such a spectacular citrus sunset.

Travel Theme: Silhouette

I love some of the examples of silhouettes that I have seen for this week’s challenge. Mine is not so fancy, but I like it because it was a happy accident. I was taking a photo of the sunrise in Cuba and then turned the camera to get a picture of the silhouette of the beach chairs and beach umbrella. A little girl playing in the surf happened into my shot. Her bucket is the only thing that has a spot of colour. What do you think?

Thanks to Ailsa over at Where’s my Backpack for this weekly challenge. If you would like to see more examples or join in follow the link.
