I wrote a post with riddles sometime ago which I thought was my last post on shadows.
But this week’s lens-artists photo challenge on shades and shadows is meant to be “simple, but hopefully enjoyable.”
So without overcomplicating it, here are a few snaps from a visit to St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague, Czech Republic, some years ago. The play of light and shadow inside the church is simply sublime.
Going back to riddles, there’s one that says: “I am as big as you are, but I am weightless. Who am I?”
The answer is a shadow of course!
However for this man, who I spotted outside St. Vitus Cathedral wearing shades and bringing an umbrella to use its shadow as a carry-around shade, it doesn’t seem weightless at all.
I said I won’t overcomplicate it, so let’s keep it simple and enjoyable!
