Me and My Shadow

Lately I've been intrigued with including my shadow in pictures insteading of getting an angle without it. Shadow as portrait, or just enough of a portrait, just enough to include my presence in spirit. Or as a fleeting image, just like I see a familiar bird shadow sly over the land, or the flash of a deer's white tail as it disappears into the firs. (I did mean to say "fly" instead of "sly", but then I thought "sly" sounded right, too.) Shadows can be reality seen distorted, or in a new way. Here I have long tall legs, the better to walk this land of up and down.

My daily shadow walking the dog.
I really liked this one in black and white. I like how the real grass and the real tree is light in front of their dark shadows, but there is only my shadow, not the real me ;0)
