Lovely! Crocuses and your shadow! I'm thrilled that you had my humble picture in mind when you took this, Volker -- it's a beauty, with a twist of humor thrown it too. Great job! Thanks so much for the link,

From my shadow to yours,

Have a great day and my best wishes to you as always,

Oh, sorry Sue for my late answer. Thank you for your nice words and thoughts, and also your best wishes.

Spring time is gone for long, and we enjoy a real tropical Hamburg summer, having now changed to the "monsun" period (a lot, lot of rain).

But it doesn't matter, we take it as it is :)

Well Anna, you are a good observer, it could be the shadow of a bycicle, however, I was without one ;). I was just strechting my left arm to create a dramatic pose, and the rest are the shadows of some flower bunches, thats it :-D

Thank you Elena

for your kind words. I like the interpretation in your comment above, one could imagine, that I was standing in a nice flower garden. In fact I took this picture in the middle of a roundabout, surrounded by noisy traffic.

So this is another good example, how true photography can be :).

Best wishes from Hamburg

Schön, Volker, in der shadow-Gruppe gleich noch so ein Klasse Foto von dir zu finden. Für mich ebenfalls ein klares YSL, wegen der Kreativität und für die "trotzige Gebärde", den Frühling inmitten des rauschenden Verkehrs zu suchen, zu finden und - zu teilen. Viele Grüße in den Norden - wo vermutlich schon fast wieder Winter herrscht ;-) richt.oldi

Besten Dank richt.oldi

für Lob und like. Da muss ich mich bei Hamburgs Stadtgärtnern bedanken, die jeden grünen Streifen mit reichlich Frühlingsblühern bestücken. Es gibt da noch einen sehenswerte Stelle, wo ich mich auch durch fließenden Verkehr auf einen Mittelstreifen gewagt habe -diesmal aber ohne Schatten :).

Und mit dem Winter hast Du (leider) recht, habe heute morgen ca. 20cm Neuschnee vom Autodach gekehrt.

Hello Volker Welcome to the small "Shadowmans World" group a new adventure for the photographer with imagination. L/3 Regards Bo

Thank you Bob

for your welcome and like.

In the beginning I did not care for shadows, i.e. found them only later when looking the pictures on the screen. Nowadays I look for a position to bring my shadow into the scene -and I have fun doing this.
