” The loviest things in life are but shadows, and they come and go, and change and fade away”
– Charles Dickens
Shadows are a very defined objection about it’s real meaning and how it can be exposed in photography….
A shadow is a dark area where light from another light source coming in between rays of light.
” Shadows is the means by which bodies display their from. The form of bodies could not be understand in their detail but for their shadows”
– Leonhard da Vinci

Breathtaking pictures Cornelia and words of perfection. Thanks for the share
Kamal, coming from you I really appreciate your wonderful comment, thank you,
Welcome dear Cornelia and they were awesome.
Being an amateur photographer, I have always been fascinated by the shadows, which often I discover only afterwards on my photos. Your delightful images increased my awareness of the beauty that shadows can create. I like best your second photo with shadows cast on the floor. Your quote from Charles Dickens says it all about the ephemeral nature of our short life here on planet Earth. Thank you, Cornelia, for the wonderful post on shadows!
Peter, I thank you for your wonderful comment. Makes me happy that you enjoyed it that much. My eye sees shadows every where, even at most less interesting places.
Love them all!
Thank you so much.
Great vision Cornelia!
Thank you so much Michael, I’m glad you enjoyed it.
I love capturing shadows as well. Beautiful words and images, Cornelia.
Thank you so much Carol, for your lovely comment. Hope you are enjoying the fall colors.
Cornelia your take on the Shadow is totally convincing and depicts the inner core of its existence and the beauty surrounded by it.
The Quotes you have mentioned give a better knowledge of the Shadow and throw light upon a shadowless knowledge.
In photography as you know, without the Shadow there shall be no photo.
Let me try to give a Quote of mine on this.
“Shadow is a creation of light without which Light itself has no existence”
I am delighted by this post.
Shiva , that makes me happy that you are delighted by my post, that’s my approach in my photography work. Shadows have been my passion since I was very young, as you say it’s a creation of light, were without it Light wouldn’t have any existence. I have always been fascinated by this wonder of Light.
