Sunlight Chasing Shadow - jwardenphotography

In basic composition and visual design, we explored how light offers us something special. As our developing skills lead us to observe with heightened awareness, we investigate shadows.

Bless... the two painting masters who first pointed out to me (raw young pupil that I was) that there was a coming and going among trees, that there was sunlight in shadows. – Emily Carr

In the same way that we can learn to be always, looking for the light, we can also learn to look for shadows and how they can add to our pursuit of heightened awareness.

Shadow Diptych

Shadows caught my eye at our coffee log one morning on Billings Spit. There is a low concrete retaining wall close to where we sit for our morning coffe, and I happened to see the plant shadows cast against the wall. Simple lines and shadows traced upon a concrete canvas. The result is pleasing in its feelings of simplicity and yet complex in its presentation of color, light and line, pattern, texture and shadow. A little bit of nature's magic layered onto man made stone.
