Perspective and composition, in much of my photography, thus far at least, has been more instinctive and impulsive than deliberate! As has the capturing of light and shadow.
I am in the process of learning to change that and pay more attention to the rules In the meantime here is a selection of serendipitous shadows……the header from Patuxai, Vientiane, being my favourite.
Shadow is a colour as light is,
but less brilliant; light and shadow
are only the relation of two tones.
~ Paul Cezanne
“The true work of art is but
a shadow of the divine perfection”
“When walking through the
“valley of shadows,”
remember, a shadow
is cast by a Light”
~ Austin O’Malley
Sometimes people don’t see shadows.
The Chinese of course never paint them in
pictures, oriental art never deals with shadow.
But I noticed these shadows and…….
I knew it meant it was sunny.
~ David Hockney
Until next time……..happy travels, no matter where life takes you
