Day 2~ November 2nd~ New York

even shadows must rest

Being a photographer, shadows intrigue, evade, flee, hover and enchant us in so many ways as they claim their place in our images. Shadows are strange phenomena, aren’t they? They are the reverse projections of whatever object is blocking the light, almost like the doubles of that object that follow it wherever it goes, sometimes obviously visible and daunting, and other times barely there like phantoms. In a high energy city like New York, even shadows need a little nap.

  1. Makes the viewer resting as well. Great thoughts on shadows, they are my favorite objects as well

  2. So good in B&W. Was he in full sunlight? It is a little deceptive in monochrome.

  3. Mimo, I like the photo and your commentary re “shadow”! Thank God we’re still casting one! πŸ™‚

  4. I would have been proud if I had taken that shot!

  5. Yet, the hat speaks “city” to me.
