Hello again, welcome to a new week, with all the light and shade it will bring, starting with today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, the prompt for which was chosen by K’lee; Notions of shadow and light.
I chose to seek inspiration in our flat and out in the garden, just to see if I could find suitable subjects in such a limited space.
From the garden I harvested these three images; the tangled white bones of a clematis, where the shadow and actual plant are almost indistinguishable against the shed…
…the snake-like shadow of an ornamental solar light…
…and the striped pattern formed by the sun shining through the tines of a rake.
Indoors, though, that was where I spotted my favourite bit of shadow play, which I christened “When the reflection escapes the mirror”.
The original looked so good that I updated it from a slightly more artistic angle, by which time the plant (a dahlia, which was lifted from the garden and has spent the winter inside in the warm, only sprouting new shoots the other day) had grown somewhat.
See for yourself.
*edit: I went out last night and caught these two extra shots on the way home.
See what shadowy shots K’lee brings to the party, HERE.
Now you can throw some shade our way.
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
