These Awesomely-Timed Shadows Will Have You Doing Double-Takes
Shadows are clever little tricks of the light. What looks like an alien lurking in the corner is only a coat rack and a pile of clothes. The angle of the sun or the way the light hits an object just right can create something magical from an ordinary object. There’s no way these shadows won’t have you looking twice!
The Most Patriotic Shadow
Sure, this flag doesn’t have 50 stars, but that’s a trivial detail. With this shadow in your living room, it’s the Fourth of July every time the sun shines. Watching the flag fade as the sun sets is probably pretty cool! With shadows, timing is everything. The next slide proves it.
The Perfect Moment
Imagine stumbling upon this shadow. It only has a moment to be this perfect on each day that the sun shines. The photo is like a still from a movie. Do you think the shadow world is about to take over, or is technicolor reality fighting back? Shadows have a funny way of making real things appear skewed.
Cows In Bas Relief
Photos taken from a high vantage point on a bright day are unreal. There are two cows in this photo, a black one and a white one. They’re average-sized cows, but their shadows are larger than life. Their actual shapes resemble sharply-defined silhouettes, don’t you think?
This looks like the worst Photoshop fail in all of life, doesn’t it? That guy in the back is just a badly cropped picture, right? Look closer. The shadow aligns perfectly with the framing of the man behind the other two. What appears to be the corner of a thumbnail is just a strangely geometric shadow on some dude’s shirt.
Spotting a four-leaf clover is a special event on its own. Catching sight of a clover that’s casting a heart-shaped shadow is a genuine rarity. Good on the photographer for snapping this picture. It’s a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of opportunity. Have you ever even seen a four-leaf clover?
For that matter, what’s the neatest shadow you’ve ever seen?
