May 14/10 Shadows

May 14/10 Shadows, originally uploaded by susanvg.

Daily Shoot: Find an interesting shadow--any shadow--and make a photograph of it. Consider your framing as you shoot.

The sun came out at the end of a very grey day, casting long shadows. Some were crisp and clear, others blurred. The long images, distortions of the original, show us aspects we may not have noticed.

I love the play of light and shadow, the way the shadows are drawn on the pavement, transitory, illusory - there to be appreciated for a short time and then they are changed and finally disappear. It is a reminder that we have to stop and cherish moments, take those images into our minds, to play with them later.
