Lamp Post and Shadow

Lamp Post and Shadow

While on a walk around my apartment complex I saw this lamp post and it’s shadow differently. I actually had walked past it when I noticed another lamp post and turned around to go back to this one. My earlier image was taken back in March with the shadow was on opposite side of the lamp post. I just had to take a photo.

So, I’m leaning my back up against a garage door, my knees are bent just slightly, camera to my eye and pointing upward. Let me tell ya, I was focused on this lamp post and it’s shadow. While I’m in this silly position, some man drives by in the parking lot, makes a quick glance at me then twists around to see what I’m trying to photograph. It wouldn’t surprise me if he tells his wife about the nut in the parking lot with a camera and wonders if they should look for a different apartment, or maybe a new town. It bet it was comical to see. If your not a photographer then this little scenario is probably meaningless but if your an avid photographer you can relate. I am at a place where I constantly look for images in everyday scenes and sometimes with new eyes.

  1. Great image. The fact that the shadow just touches the post really adds strength to the photo.

  2. I know the feeling–I sometimes think people are going to call the authorities on me, because I am walking around taking pictures and they have no idea why–LOL!
