It's that time of the month again (well, not that time - lol). But it is the time for Graham's monthly challenge at One Man's Travels, and this month he has chosen "Shadows" as the theme. I had to think long and hard on this one and when I began my trek, I had in mind to photograph small shadows within small objects, i.e. rocks.
It was at that point that I happened upon my own shadow and actually began to pose and move in different angles in respect to the sun's position. When I took a picture of my shadow with both hands on the camera, it looked odd to me, sort of like my arms were missing, or that they were oddly connected to my head.
Then decided to put one hand on my hip and take the picture with the other hand. This resulted in what seemed to be an accidental, deliberate, sensual pose. I took another one of a cactus and its shadows, but was not as happy with this one.
Again, I had a great time with this challenge Graham. These challenges make me push myself to go that extra mile and think outside the box, which, as luck would have it, tends to be my regular way of thinking the older I get. LOL.
