Took the Long Way Home 1


April 1, 2015

A week ago Saturday the camera and I dawdled on the way to farmers market and took the long way home. The early light on orange stucco felt like a double whammy of morning. If you follow Ashley Lily Scarlet’s Strata of the Self, you may see this photo again someday. (You may need to reduce the size of your browser window—my vertically formatted photographs in this WordPress theme show either too large or too small.)

    • Thank you, Markus. Now that you mention it, those shadows are a nice contrast. I love it when people see or think about something in my photographs that I have not seen or thought about.

  2. I wondered if you had a halo around you. Now I know. Great shot.

    • Thank you, Andy. I take a lot of photographs of my shadow to document my presence at particular places, but I don’t think I’ve ever been tempted to share one of them before. Glad you like it.

      • Shadows are a very good way of discretely taking a ‘selfie’ without giving too much away!!

    • Merci, Orepuk. J’aime toujours bleu et orange ensemble. (Le trottoir ressemble bleu pour moi.)

  6. I’ve done that too – like you mention above, taking a photo of one’s shadow as a documentation of the time and place. This one is very nice.
