Sunny Glasses

Shadows sometimes people don't see shadows. The Chinese of course never paint them in pictures, oriental art never deals with shadow. But I noticed these shadows and I knew it meant it was sunny.
David Hockney 1937-


  1. oh, i am soooo dang-dillio jealous...haven't seen any shadows here, for days... grey. grey. grey.

  2. I love shadows and I've found I notice them more and more lately. Great take on this one.

  3. Hello Don,
    thank you for leaving me a comment, I think I might keep the dome for air storage;) And when I think it has served long enough as air storage, I might go for your first option, the rose.

    Love the shadow of the glasses. I do a bit of shadowhunting myself, now and again.

    Good night from Helsinki.

  4. Nice shot.
    I did a painting years ago that was just the shadow of glasses...It was interesting and difficult.
    Love the quotes you choose.

  5. Nice shadows, such a simple yet powerful shot!

  6. Funny - I love shadows in photography . . .

  7. Hi Don,
    I jumped to your blog from Scott's blog. I always love to look at new photoblogs and I love your photography! You are very talented and I enjoy the variety in your posts. Reminds me of me.....there are so many interesting things to photograph, I can't settle down to just one type of subject. I'll visit again soon.

  8. I never noticed that in oriental art..thanks for hinting it via Hockney !
    ah your pic makes me want to lie down on sunny beach ! (when i stop sneezing of course..)
    Have a great week end Don !

  9. Oh yes I do see shadows. have done interested photos with those.

    Hello from Lausanne, en Suisse.

  10. shadows are one of my favorites-- I have done several posts on shadows-- dancing in between the light and dark. People don't always see how much color is in the shadows.

  11. Beautifully captured sunshine and shadows. I really like this one!
