Celebrate the Shadows

Posted by Christi Ginger on 2 May 2008.

A few weeks ago, I came across this shot by Jeff James. I was trying to figure out what was going on in the frame when my eyes refocused on the shadow against the wall. I love it!

Since then, I've been keeping my eyes peeled for photos that focus on the shadow. I love how the subjects turn out dreamily distorted and also love the contrast between the real object and its outline. Here are some more great shadow pics I've found on JPG. Enjoy!
