Friday Photo Challenge – shadows

Today’s challenge was set by Sandy who says more times than not when she sees a shadow in her photo, it’s a mistake. It means that she focused so much on one part of the picture, she forgot to look at the whole. I do  know that feeling? Indeed I usually delete or crop the photo.

Of course, there are times when shadows are deliberate. The play on light and dark can emphasize a shape and provide visual interest. Shadows can capture a feeling or add atmosphere to a scene. Indeed only yesterday I commented on how much I enjoyed the contrast between light and shade in Derrick’s photos.

Here’s my modest selection from near and far.

I’m much enjoying these weekly challenges hosted on alternate weeks by either Amanda or Sandy because they force me to think about what’s in my photo archives and how I might re-use them.

If you’ve enjoyed this post, why not join in the fun?

Friendly Friday

  1. I do enjoy your glimpses into Mediterranean France. Every once in while, I think I recognize a place – Hotel Negresco being one of them. Thanks for finding some shadows pictures for this week’s challenge.
