Themes: Shadows

Another on my look back at my photographic themes.

Well, we photographers all like shadows.

After all shadows are what photographs are, otherwise they would be just white light.  The shadows make shapes in the light that we can capture.

But more than that, I do look out for interesting shadows; this is linked to my previous post about geometry and there is a big overlap but I wanted to give it it’s own post as there is something more to shadows. Continue reading “Themes: Shadows”

from a long way up

I recently visited Chicago and went up to the 94th floor of the John Hancock building where tourists (like me) can find ‘360 Chicago‘ that allows great views across the city in all directions.  It also has a ride of sort called ‘Tilt’ which has a moving section of glass that when you are standing against it tilts out a few feet as if it were going to fall.  I didn’t do that part of the attraction just checked out the views.

We were there later in the afternoon so the sun was casting long shadows.  I spotted this beach below and liked the angle.  I waited to see if someone walked on so I could get a shot.  I needed to switch to my other lens which isn’t as nice as the others but gives me the longest focal length (effective 300mm) and I was rewarded when this couple wandered into shot and my steady hand didn’t let me down.

Submitting this for the Weekly Photo Challenge Ascend.

I didn’t have quite the right lens to get the angle I wanted on this but I’m reasonably happy with the result.

Daily Photo Challenge #8 – Natural World

The daylight saving time change is what has thrown me off on this.  Last week I got the assignment as i finished work giving me an opportunity to get some shots on my way home, now they are an hour later so light is fading fast and I am already into evening tasks.  Oh well i just have to shift my thinking slightly.

The challenge was Natural world, so I took a wander out at lunchtime yesterday and on my way home before today’s challenge was set.  I think these are more the ‘cultivated’ world rather than natural but hey you take what you can get.
