  2. Submission: The Crossroad of Light and Shadow

    This is another in my series of photos capturing this fascinating art object called an "Orb". At different times of the day, the colors and shadows the "orb" produces are a marvel to behold. Today was no exception so I have selected this image entitled, "Crossroad of Light and Shadow" as my entry for Challenge #8. Thanks, Michael, for this great new topic and challenge!

    Mother feeding with baby hitching a ride. Very low sun creating shadows of sailboat masts framing the cygnet. Sun shining through the water droplets on mother's back.

    Title : The Saxophone Player

    So many times we run past street musicians in the hustle and bustle of NYC. It almost like they aren't there. Its almost like they are just a shadow.
