In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions.

    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!

  3. Judi says:

    Love them all!

  4. I love capturing shadows as well. Beautiful words and images, Cornelia.

  5. 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.
