I’m having a shot at taking part in Julia’s Camera Lucida photo challenge this Monday.
Do check out Julia’s blog it is wonderfully dressed in a most brilliant, sumptuous Red!
Here’s the link to My Red Page if you’d like to join in Julia’s Weekly Photography Gallery:
Julia’s chosen theme this week is : Divergent
The definition of divergent is things that move in different directions or that are far apart from each other.
Opposites, dissimilar, different, contradictory, reverse.
I decided to focus on shadows as the theme of light and shadow, and in particular good and bad characters, is one I like to consider in some of my writing. The photo below is one of my Country park photos that I took in the woods, I’ve cropped the image to make it seem more scary looking! I’m particularly pleased with this creepy shadow, what do you think?
The photo below is a striking shadow on the mottled ground, I’ve manipulated the image to make the shadows appear darker, thicker and more menacing. Creepy huh?
This is a gentler image of my shadow set against contrasting brightly coloured hexagonal paving stones. What am I up to? Is it really me? There’s no way of telling is there? That’s the fascinating thing about shadows they leave so much to the viewer’s imagination.
This is another photograph that I took at the country park, I’ve cropped the image to focus on this interesting pattern of lined shadows that caught my eye.
Thanks for stopping by, what do you think of shadows? Do they fascinate and intrigue you too?

Nice Shadow captures Marje 😀
Thanks Chris. 🙂
I love love love your post:)
Welcome to Camera Lucida…great pics, a very unique interpretation of this week’s theme:)
Thank you Julia, I’ve been wanting to join in Camera Lucida for a while. I hope to use some of these images on a book cover idea I’m developing (just in case I end up self publishing my novel.) Currently considering this. So Camera Lucida might be a good way for me to gauge interest in my pics. 🙂
I am really happy you’re enjoying Camera Lucida:) Hardly wait to see your next entries!
I like them all, but am particularly drawn to the last one – but then I’m hooked on patterns at the moment.
Thanks for your comment, how kind of you to say, yes I like the pattern one too!
I’m drawn to the last one like you too~ Nice capture Marje!
Thank you so much. 🙂
Great photos Marje, even if that first one is also a little creepy. 😨
Oh yes, it is a bit eerie, hope I don’t give anyone nightmares!
You did very well with this challenge, Marje! I love the pictures. You have a great eye. The images are certainly different. 😀
Thank you Vashti, well I never, I didn’t consider myself to have any talent whatsoever in the photography department, but I must say I am enjoying having a go…. 🙂
Stay with it! I think you’re a natural.
I will keep it up, really enjoying the photography. A bit of a surprise discovery via blogging. 🙂
I have always enjoyed taking shadow photos. Yours are just the best. Thank you for sharing them!
Thank you JoHanna, this is a new adventure for me, enjoyed taking part in Camera Lucida.
