Shadow Shot Sunday #4 (47)

Our streetlights are sulphur lamps, casting an mellow orange glow over whatever it feels like. It’s all the more stark when there’s a power cut in residences, while street lights continue to burn ferociously.

The first photo is a view from my 5th floor window. A power cut in the summer heat brought the women outside. They sat around waiting, chatting, feeling the slightest of breezes, and casting these stark shadows.

Light from the street-lamps also made it into my home. Caught these shadows playing on the bedroom wall.

  6. Chickensue says:

    Great colours in these shadow shots..very atmospheric. Somehow scary and enticing at thesame time.

    The top photo really appeals to me! Without knowing the details about it, I think I’d find it a little unsettling with the eerie look to it. That’s what I love about it. Very haunting! And yes, as someone mentioned above, VERY atmospheric. It certainly wouldn’t be out of place in a ‘fine art photography’ category! Super shot!

  9. Very fascinating shadows. I love the red colours. Happy Easter!

    Really cool shadow shots. I don’t think I have ever seen sulphur street lights.

    The first image is screaming to be turned into a movie. Mind you, I would be hiding behind the seat, cowardy custard that I am. You take the most beautiful photographs.

  13. These are really moody atmospheric shots…wonderful!!
