Man Observing & Its Shadow


I saw this interesting statue called "Man Observing II" by Viola Frey at a local museum. It's made of glazed earthenware, steel, and cement. I thought the shadow it casts was intriguing as well.

Happy Friday,
AV

Love pictures with shadows and reflections. This is a great capture. Shows you were alert.

Sorry about the storms at your house. Hope all is well.

I love the shadow of the statue, great capture!

One might almost say that the shadow is more interesting than the statue...

Thank you for a nice comment!

Interesting indeed. Especially since from the front view, the man looks to be standing straight up, but from the shadow, he appears to be slumped over.

Very interesting contrast between the shadow and the figure. Its very colorful too.

This is very strange to me. How can he cast a shadow like that? lol. Really neat photo!

Thanks Andrea. The room was pretty dark except for the overhead lights so that's how I noticed the shadow. As for the heavy rains, we have been getting leaks in the lower floors. Probably cracks somewhere in the walls.

Jean/Dana/Neva/Dot, I think the way the spotlights that were situated overhead made the shadow look a little slumped over.

Runee/Photowannbe, Originally, I thought the colorful statue was interesting until I noticed the shadow.

That's a marvelous photo. I think the shadow adds immensely to the scene here.

Thanks Annie, that means a lot coming from someone who brings a camera everywhere. I agree with your comment about the shadow otherwise, it's just a statue.

Lovely pic. The shadow looks curious about something! :-)
