Day 290: Window-shadow

Day 290: Window-shadow, originally uploaded by susanvg.

This is actually two photographs that have been juxtaposed - though the shadows on the door were created by this window. I just liked the idea of the positive and negative. The sun was low on the horizon, casting a golden glow on the door, projecting stripes from the blinds. I find it interesting that the shadow made the lines more obvious whereas in the window the lines seem to fade, letting the outdoor scene take precedence.

Sometimes a shadow can seem larger than life - as when we let worry take over. The worry becomes larger than the problem. Perhaps we should keep this window in mind - that usually there is a way through to the other side of problems and issues if we just look through them instead of focussing on the shadow the problem casts. It takes a lifetime to learn.


  1. I'm still learning this lesson - thanks for the reminder. The photos are a perfect illustration!

  2. Very nice analogy for find a solution to a problem! And nice photos to illustrate it too!
