about shadow

"Speak you too,
speak as the last,
say out your say.

But don't split off No from Yes.
Give your say this meaning too:
Give it the shadow.

Give it shadow enough,
Give it as much
As you know is spread round you from
Midnight to midday and midnight.

Look around:
See how things all come alive-
By death! Alive!
Speaks true who speaks shadow.

But now the place shrinks, where you stand:
Where now, shadow-stripped, where?
Climb. Grope upwards.
Thinner you grow, less knowable, finer!
Finer: a thread
The star wants to descend on:
So as to swim down beliow, down here
Where it sees itself shimmer:in the swell
Of wandering words."
― Paul Celan

''We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm - yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.''
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

How do you present the shadow?

little rules:

In contributing, avoid presenting minimal shadows, because everything has a shadow, so therefore, it would be great if it is the overall impression of a shadow, or middle, well just don't minimal. :ahoy:

Accepting Photography, Digital Photography and manipulation, Traditional (drawing, painting, crafts, sculpting), Animation, so it's wide concept of this group.

Also, catch up with some journals of this group if you want to get closer the attention and goals (maybe):
What is shadow?Welcome you all who are admirers of shadow.
Feel free to join and contribute.
This group just born today (on 19th November), so there would be a lot of changes.
Leave shadow in peace for a while and maybe we can create together and contribute in the name of that abstract product of nature.
if you have any ideas and questions, feel free.
I would invite contributors, but if you have really a wish to contribute in this beginning, let me note and we would make a deal.
A shadow is an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach due to obstruction by an object. It occupies all of the space behind an opaque object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or reverse projection of the object blocking the light. The sun causes many objects to have shadows and at certain times of the day, when the sun is at certain heights, the lengths of shadows change.
An astronomical object casts human-visible shadows when its apparent
ART OF THE SHADOW vol 1Hello, dear friends and visitors who can join whenever they want this group :iconshadowlightseeker:
I'm happy to make such connection of the element shadow which create a lot of the effects on the photography.
The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.
Brooks Anderson, Once Around the Sun
A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.
Diane Arbus
The magic of photography is metaphysical. What you see in the photograph isn't what you saw at the time. The real skill of photography is organized visual lying.
Terence Donovan
Is shadow visual lie? :? :giggle:
While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.
Dorothea Lange
ANYWAY, ALWAYS THE BEST PART: the art of shadows.
