Daily Prompt: Shadow

Shadow: a dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface. silhouette, outline, shape, contour, profile.

Shadows can be fun, stretching our bodies into something they are not depending upon where the sun is in the sky.

My body is  sooooo long. 20150329_081726

My head is so small…..132

Shadow: Also used in reference to ominous oppressiveness, or sadness and gloom.

Sometimes it feels like shadows creeping in and around when I think of people who are no longer here. Their shadows haunt, lingering in the corners of my mind, I see their faces, but know they are just shadows, not real.

  1. Wow, you did look really long in the shadow shots. I know and understand about those shadows of people who are no longer here and see the a lot. Hugs


  2. I know shadows are supposed to be a bit dreary and scary, but I happen to love them, literally and even metaphorically. Shadows can hide some surprising thoughts/activities/memories. And show off a tall tall body and small head. 🙂


  3. Sometimes I take the shadow picture. The rest of the time, I try to find an angle to shoot which avoids the shadow and leaves me some light on my subject. “I have a little shadow …”
