#FriFotos #Shadows of Our Past

By Kenin Bassart @Constantramble

This weeks #FriFotos theme was shadows. We’ve put together a series of photos from our travels and our lives where shadow plays an important role. Often shadows are cast as things of darkness and negativity, an absence of light. But as we see they can also be enriching, and give definition to our lives.

The beach is typically associated with eternal sunshine and brightness. Here, the shadows cast are a reprieve from the heat and allow us to enjoy the remains of the day.

Animals use the shadows to take a break from the mid-day sun and rest. Predators can also often lurk in the shadows as they await their prey.

Shadows can also highlight the extremity of certain scenarios and increase the feeling of solitude. There are times where the only things visible in a landscape are shadows of ourselves, or those created by Mother Earth.

At other times shadows serve a different purpose. They enhance the light and remind us of it’s greatness.
