Shadow Play

Nothing's perfect in this world, least of all the light when you're taking photographs. Either it's dull and dreary or else the light is smashing fiercely down giving burnt out highlights and inky-black shadows. Black shadows? Well, why not?



















And a self-portrait to finish off....
















Take care.

  6. These are pretty special. I'm partial to a good shadow pic - not to mention the sun that creates them!
