In Search of Shadows

Shadows are magical things, as Peter Pan knew. . .



Sometimes one sees a thing more clearly in the precision of its shadow . . .

Could we call these bright bars of light sun shadows?

Virginia Creeper's elegant shadow swag adorns a weathered wall.

Love the shadows! I see you with your straw hat on and your veggie gathering bucket on your arm in the first one!

My favorite is the Virginia Creeper -- I'd love that design stenciled somewhere.

Looking for shadows is a fun alternate way of seeing things!

I had always thought of shadows as negatives, as in photographic negatives. But your sun shadows are positives. This puts me in mind of the Robert Louis Stevenson poem. Just Google, "I have a little shadow."
The last stanza is my fave.

A Chil'd Garden of Verses was some of my earliest reading! Like the child in that poem, I love to watch my shadow elongate and compress with the movement of the sun.

The shadows you found are out of this world beautiful!

A camera is a wonderful thing -- another kind of magic!
