Shadows have always fascinated me with their own personality as they constantly shift with the morning light at street level. As time moves forward shadows dissipate as the light rises up to the sky creating luminance on the surrounding streets, monoliths, rivers, and harbors. The darkness of shadows from elusive street corners tells us how dark it really is but the light source is often hidden behind something sneaking about making its presence felt. Such is the yin and the yang of daily forces between shadow and light.
