Shadows

I’ve only just realized – or rather, it’s been pointed out to me – why the images that show here are disappointingly small and fuzzy. You perhaps already understood! They are mere thumbnails, and by clicking on them you can see full-resolution versions that fill the screen. Moreover, if you then click again, you see a magnified detail.

So, a few pictures.

Shadow in the church of San Michele in Foro, in the central piazza of Lucca.  When I caught sight of this shadow, thrown to one side of the apse because the light casting it had to be fixed on one side of a high arch, I fancied the cross and the shadow might symbolize the archangel Michael and the dark archangel Satan he’s casting out of heaven.

 

One thought on “Shadows”

  1. Cool! I’d like to find and post a pic of me on top my mountain when I ‘owned’ it. You don’t land. Land owns you. It ended badly, but I have and incredible pic of me with my shadow exteding way down into the valley.
    Keep’em coming Guy. I’m sorry if I got carried away a few chats ago,,, but I was drunk and totally uninhibited., I’m much better now, thanks…
