Project Athena - Day 287 (Shadows)

Casting Shadows

This week, studying shadows has truly been a week of studying light. In the words of Lady Gaga, “If you don't have any shadows, you're not in the light.” Several overcast days posed some challenges but I learned that I can cast my own shadows with any sort of light. I was also aware of how fickle shadows are. They come and go in a heartbeat, even when the object or person casting the shadow remains resolute. Finding a position to shoot without casting my own shadow into the frame was probably the most challenging part of this week and I realized that in life, I have often over shadowed the people I love out of my own insecurity. Huh? Hope that is in the past.
