Photo 52: A Play on Light

Shadows - Week 4

"Should not every apartment in which man dwells be lofty enough to create some obscurity overhead, where flickering shadows may play at evening about the rafters?" -Henry David Thoreau

 

For the final week of shadows for Photo 52, a long-term collaborative project I am participating in with several other talented photographers, I decided to shoot indoors.  It was a particularly cloudy forecast this past week in New York City so I worked with a single light source, in this case a small votive candle, to create dramatic shadows that literally danced around its base.  Below is my take for our final week of playing with light and shadows.
