Self Portrait: Shadows

Think, I love me just the way I am

I don't have anything special to say this time.  But I did have fun taking the shadow pics...

This one is me and my sweet baby in our house.  I used the lights inside to take these and have a little fun.  Can you see Luke's curlies in the back of his head?

 This is me drinking a glass of wine (that I actually only had one drink of because by the time I got to the rest of it I didn't feel like it) and I usually have beer but we were out...

 This is me kissing my husband :D  awww so sweet.

This is me, outside at these food cart things by my friend Usa's house.  I think her head is the one that is lower.  It looks like I'm wearing a dress, but in fact, it's basketball shorts.

This is our shadows.  Me and my little nursling.

I love the kissing shadow, lovely! And the curl, so sweet.

I can tell you had fun with these! I too love the kissing shadow and Luke's curl! The wine shadow made me laugh ... my shadow is always drinking and leaving me out!

The shorts do look like a skirt, LOL. Interesting how the elimination of detail creates an illusion of something else entirely.

I'm glad you had fun doing this ... thanks so much for joining!

Wonderful, how you played with this. Going into this challenge, I hadn't thought of shadows as playful. But they certainly do have that element, don't they? I was surprised to find it so.

That curl is absolutely enchanting!

Thanks for the compliments. It was fun and I love my sons little curlies. I think he's going to take after dad (who has curly hair but you'd never know because he cuts it so short!)
