Shadow Figure

Biker From Above

My preferred way of transportation is the bicycle. It keeps you fit. You don't travel at a very high speed, so you don't miss much around you which is very good if you are a keen photographer. One of the things I'm always looking for when I'm out with the camera are cool shadows. I sometimes shoot from the bike, but for this cool theme day shot I walked up on a hill and aimed the camera down towards the man on the bike.

Today is theme day and the theme this month is shadows. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

I like the photograph. It is complete without the shadow being chopped off. Nice work.

Such an unusual view of this chap, STeffe. The shadow is so very clear. I hope he got the plant how without losing too many of the petals. I do admire his socks!!

I have a feeling the plant will survive its destination unscathed. Great image of this experienced bicyclist and his shadow . . . bicycling is a great way to get from point A to B . . . I wish Quincy was more bicycle friendly.

I loved my bike, I used it to go everywhere. Now crazy traffic and serial stealing have killed my riding. Now I walk, but it is slower and harder, specially for a Lazy Poet.
Great interpretation of the theme day with a plus for the praise of the bike.

That's a good shadowy photo.

I have just started using my bike again after the winter. Huff puff puff.

Happy theme day!
