This week’s theme was rather down to earth and, nonetheless, critical to good photography: Shadow!
The approach to the theme was varied in that both personal and other shadows were captured in the images, some of which were asked about their lurking behavior. The view of the shadows was very personal and looked at multiple interpretations. There was even an art installation that asked the audience to contribute their shadows to the overall effect!
This little image was one that I did years ago for an conceptual photography class. It is inspired by a sketch by Piet Mondriaan of trees along a road.
The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:
- ladileemanilla was very quick to respond to the challenge and provided some wonderful photos highlighting shadows.
- Nadia’s post in Becoming Roots featured a haiku, in addition to great photos!
- Kim’s blog, Do You See What I See??, provided a report on an art installation, where shadows were a key component.
- Judith provided a post in Nature Knows Best, that shows that great minds can think alike, as her photography took some of the same approaches that I had in my image.
- Michelle writes an awesome blog, Southern By Design, in which she posted about seagulls and the shadows they cast and experience.
- Miriam’s post in Out an’ About ask us to consider what lurks in the shadows that she documents… Who knows what it might be!
This was a wonderful group of posts that I really enjoyed perusing. Highly recommended to all!
Now to think of something new for tomorrow from lovely Brno.
