Shadows Around The World

My shadow in Laconia, New Hampshire. 

I love taking photos of shadows, I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because they make me look tall haha! But it’s also the mystery that comes with it. Shadows are often caused by sunlight and I like the balance and the poetry that it brings. There is always darkness in the light and light in the darkness. It brings out the ghosts in us, the spirit, or the soul.

As I go through my archives I found quite a bit of shadows from my travels. Enjoy!

    You should enter some of those in The Daily Posts weekly photo challenge – theme this week seems to fit perfectly for you as it is ‘shadowed’ 🙂


    1. Thanks! Yes, it was actually inspired on the daily post theme. 🙂

  2. I like taking pictures of shadows, too. You are not alone. 🙂



  3. Such a beautiful collection…. Love that one particularly of the garden in India – the colours and the composition almost makes it look like a painting!


  4. My favourite – your shadow in Astoria, Oregon.


  5. What a lovely idea to showcase shadows from your travels, it would even work as a whole photography blog I think, kind of a different take on a travel blog! 🙂


    1. Yeah, my blog is a bit all over the place 🙂 Thanks!
