Time for a simple, but hopefully enjoyable challenge for this week – Shades and Shadows. As the weather is fairly hot over here now, you can guess why I chose this theme. Of course it can be interpreted less literally, but as always you are free to surprise us!
In Sweden, and some other countries, we only have one single word for this…so, a neat illustration will start this week’s challenge!
An old friend of mine had his own sleeping preferences …always in the shade. This was one of Totti’s early morning surprises. He was in his prime, agile, loving and sweet.
Skógafoss, Iceland, where late evening light made long shadows and magnificent yellows.
In the Morockan desert, the tiny scarab shows an equally tiny shadow while he is scuttling between sun and shade.
We are still in Morocko, where the narrow alleys and harsh sunlight of Marrakesh makes for both shade and shadows. And difficulties for a photographer.
Finally, an image with not many contrasts, but subtle shadows and shades let the pink/cream coloured sandstone come alive. I loved this moment that suddenly turned up while looking up a side street. That cat owns the area.
Thank you, Patti, for a thought provoking, fun and diffferent challenge last week! We had great fun enjoying your creative posts! Hope to see you this week too under the Lens-Artists tag.
Finally, stay tuned for Amy’s hosting next week, and please be safe and kind.
