Shadow Shots: The Light Within

The Light Within

My favorite glass paper weight (it was my mother's) with the last of a summer day's light pouring through it. I loved the long shadow it cast on a crumpled paper bag.

I have a similar paperweight but I have never noticed what an interesting shadow it casts. Now I will have to experiment. :)

That is beautiful! It lookks a little like a kind of sea creature.

Life - I'm flattered you'd ask. It never occurred to me that anyone would want to buy a photo of mine.
