Elements of self, (stepping out); Shadow

Once again joining Shaktimama on an exploration of self, our own true nature, an honest look at who we are, a look both at the inside and outside of this woman that each day seek to greet the world a better person than yesterday.
 As the days slowly grow shorter and our shadows longer, I am reminded of my introspective nature. I enjoy shadows, the mystery that they allow. We see a general shape, but really it says little about who we are, our mood, our person.  And while I have embraced the honesty that this photo challenge in general has encouraged, I must say I struggled with the eyes challenge and ended up skipping that one, and even this one has taken me a while to create and post. I am feeling ever so introverted these days, a sure reminder for me, of the coming and the readiness I feel for autumn and a quieting of the world around me.
So yes, I truly embrace the mystery that these shadows allow me to hide behind. And enjoyed playing around with these pictures.
~Thanks for looking in, and do check Shaktimama for more shadow images~


  1. I can relate to moving inward as autumn approaches.
    warm wishes, tonya

  2. Your first shadow looks like a shadow of Angelina Jolie ;)
    I'm also feeling introvert these days.
    Love your shadows!

  3. Oh, I almost missed this, but I'm glad I found it ... these are so bold and playful. I like your shadow very much :). I especially like the last one, the pose ... it's like our shadows are their own people or something, if that makes any sense.

    I understand about the introspection. I find myself doing this a little too, though a lot of it might have to do with the fact that I'm staying with my mother.


  4. i love them, especially the last one. come on, autumn!! ;)
