Shadow Shot Sunday - Foodie shadows

Shadows seem to appear in the natural lighting quite readily, shadows falling with depth and character under a brilliant sun.

However, for Shadow Shot Sunday this week, I look for artificial light and shadows of lower strength from indoor artificial lighting. Food works well as a subject for shadows.

Here is a table setting for a fish soup we made that has been described before. A few shadows emerge due to the candle and not-so-bright ambient lighting. I guess that the shadows are barely noticeable, but perfect for a relaxing mood composed of food, wine, candlelight and conversation. The shadows define the mood tonight.

Shadowy art abounds, see more at Tracy's excellent meme Hey Harriet!

we need those shadows sometimes huh...of slowing down, enjoying the quiet...soft light, good conversation, good food with the ones we love.

Yes, they lend to the ambiance that one seems to need to slow down and enjoy each other's conversation and company.

Your right, bro! Subtle shadows for those who have sharp eyes.

Am drooling now. Shame, can't come over to your place. Flight cancelled due to smoke/ashes from the Icelandic volcano §;-)

Cheers! & hugs to Patti from me for a wonderful Mother's Day.

We do indeed need those kinds of shadows, to slow down, enjoy the soft light, relax and have the time to truly listen/hear one another! Great shadows and post as always, Ralph! Have a great weekend!

Hey Harriet said...

That's lovely Ralph. And the soup looks delicious! Now that it's getting a bit chilly here in Oz I'm looking forward to making lots of soups :)

Have a great week!

Your photo makes my mouth water. I love fish stew with a hunk of crusty bread! AND a glass of dry white wine!

Happy SSS!
