Shadow Shot Sunday

Zipline Line
Early morning in Justin Herman Plaza, people are lining up for free rides on the zipline.

Shadow Shot Sunday--the dance craze that's sweeping the nation! (Well, lots of nations, actually.)

What a fantastic capture, Tom! Like Catherine, I love your composition and the starkness of the shadows! Terrific! Hope you have a great weekend!

The mechanical shadows seem almost as a reflection - I can feel the depth there. I noticed a wheelchair traveller also - the shadows nicely replicate the waiting passengers...

I love this - the figures look as if they have been cut from black paper!!

As I first glimped it I thought it was the weave of a very course fabric, like burlap...how cool, bricks!

I thought the bricks is a lace. This is the most awesome shot, I seen this week as of yet.

You rocks, man! love the way you take photos. It feels you really love it.

I took a look at what the zipline was - my goodness, what fun! And what a beautiful, clear image. Well done.

Great shot!

Tom Hilton said...

Thanks, y'all!

This shot was really sort of an afterthought; I wanted to get some shots of people on the zipline, and was focused on that, but saw the shadows and the silhouetted people and it just added up.

Beautiful silhouettes! Although,I cannot tell if they're faces have fear or not. Joan

Hey Harriet said...

A beautiful shadow shot but I'm not sure about that zipline ride. Just clicked the link and it looks a bit too scary to me!

Tom Hilton said...

Yeah, I'm with you on the zipline thing--sounds like 30 seconds of pure acrophobia to me.

Great shot, looks wonderful.

Great photo! I too would line up for a free go on the zipline-what fun! On our school trip to the farm last year there was a mini one-I had about ten goes!
