I say to you-don't be in such a hurry all of the time. I noticed this leaf walking back to my car after finishing up my stop at Target. There was a pool of water against the curb and this leaf was floating there with some other debris. The water had enough oil floating on the surface from the asphalt, giving it a unique reflective property. I happened to like the weird shadow cast by the leaf floating in this murky stuff.
Stuff like this is easy to miss if you're always in a hurry to get from point "A" to point"B".
I guess while I'm doing shadows in relation to water, I'll add this one to the mix too. It's the swimming pool at my brother's home. The shadow cast is from the roof line of the patio cover and the second story of the home. It really is an abstraction, isn't it?
I continue to celebrate the mundane!
"Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see." (Martin Luther King)
Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2011 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account.
