Seen and Unseen

.
Pulling one from the archives this week, since it works so well for both Sepia Scenes and Thematic Photographic's "shadow" theme. Photographing shadows has always been a keen interest of mine, I'm intrigued by the interplay between the seen and the unseen. (I think) this one is a potted lemon tree, or perhaps it's the clementine. I'm too tired cold lazy to go upstairs and take a look. Here are some several related shots taken a few months earlier as well.

I would never have thought to just take shots of shadows...they are all interesting.

Wonderful robin I like playing around with shadows also.

I thought about joining the shadow photo meme too. But right now I am having some PC problems so I am waiting.

This is very very good...I like it very much.

How pretty! I don't think I've ever seen a shadow that looked that good.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Your technique seems to have made the shadow stand out. Neat!

What a fun idea to play with the shadow in sepia! It turned out so well!

I like it!
Creative composition.

That's lovely, Robin! I was psyched to see his theme was shadow(s), since I love them too :-) Mine'll be up at midnight my time.

Sepia shadows ... how beautiful! Nice entry.

Carletta said...

This certainly fits both of your themes.
Very clever to use the sepia with the shadows. I never would have thought of that.
I really like this - nice job.

Annie said...

The technique really brings the shadow to life.

Nicely done! I love Sepia as well :)

Cheers,

Works fabulously for both. Simple and elegant. Love the juxtaposition of the organic with the architectural.

ilanadavita said...

This is a wonderful and original idea. Well-done!

Mojo said...

I like this a lot for either prompt. I suppose that shouldn't be surprising since I'm a big fan of monochrome and ... well, what's more monochromatic than a shadow?

I find shadows very interesting. Especially on walls or ceilings. It adds a touch of mystery to them :)
Lovely shoot!

Yen said...
