What’s there lurking in the shadows? None other than this week’s travel theme at Where’s my backpack! This was a tough one – I guess I tend to avoid shadows while focusing more on the light. Shadows can create a lot of drama in a picture though, and I had a lot of fun looking through other people’s interpretations. Here I have my collection of shady pictures!
During graduate school I was lucky to have a lovely 2-bedroom townhouse with a great backyard. Often times in summertime deer would be grazing on the greenery just outside my window, and in fall I even had turkeys wandering by! I took a lot of photos of my backyard throughout the seasons – this photo is from a golden summer afternoon when the trees cast lacy shadows on the grass.
A shadowy passage in Marie Antoinette’s estate in Versailles. Although the palace of Versailles is ultra-opulent and ornate, Marie Antoinette’s estate is supposed to be a bucolic return to nature and farming – but in a very luxurious and picture-perfect way! That means picturesque farmhouses, adorably thatched cottages, and oodles of gorgeous blooms.
