ShadowLicious

Downtown Ottawa, strong sunlight, delicious shadows on a long staircase. And the illusions that our minds call up to imagine what it is we are seeing.

[ f/32 1/15, 38mm, ISO 200 ]


illusion and mystery

a woman
inexplicably climbing
on the outside
of a shuttered blind

or

a woman
departing from the shadows
stepping
climbing
ever so steadily
into the light

what realities await
to meet her

what dreams await
to greet her

shadowLicious
our life
does oft become

as we emerge
submerge
from shadows
into the light

  1. Cool shot. I like the way the only color is the woman's arms. Nice "pop."

  2. Thanks Lana. I first tried this with a bw process, but it has a nicer effect I think,leaving it alone with the color :)
