The world of shadows know no bounds, showing up in unexpected places, and ways too.
So for Shadow Shot Sunday, this old print, seen before, captured my shadowy imagination.
It is ten years ago on the Henry Hudson Parkway approach to the beautiful George Washington Bridge (GWB) across the Hudson River to New Jersey, opened in 1931. Two things stand out: a stuffed bear enjoying the view and the horizontal appearing shadow that is actually a windshield (windscreen?) wiper - that is the unexpected shadow taken by then co-pilot Cameron...
Earlier on the same drive to Pennsylvania, we entered the tree lined border to New York along the picturesque Hutchinson River Parkway.
A pretty road that is of an old and quite poor design. However on a Sunday morning without the hordes of commuters, it really is a nice drive. Plenty of trees to cast shadows across the four lanes.
The aforementioned bear, named Henry, is more easily spotted here.
Later that same trip, this was captured by the co-pilot of that day, the lovely Patti.
I am curious about the effects that are climbing diagonally on the windscreen. Are they shadows? Perhaps reflections? either/or maybe neither/nor.
I do like the way they appear on the print. I wonder what the bear thought?
See the artistry of the shadowy world at Hey Harriet!
