My Sunday Photo 14/12/14 Playing with shadows

I was out with both girls in the park yesterday. The sun was low in the sky and very bright so we all had huge shadows. I wondered if I could get a picture of all our shadows, something I thought would work well in black and white.

Of course Toddler Adams had other ideas. She wanted cuddles and refused to be put down on the ground. Instead I got both girls to wave with the toddler in my arms.

It’s just a bit of fun and silliness. Even so, I had to do quite a bit of editing, tinkering with the exposure, darkening the shadows and so on.

    It’s very cute! I wouldn’t have managed to get a photo without my phone showing, so how you managed it with Toddler Adams in your arms I can’t imagine! Impressive!

    What a great shot, I love the way you got them to wave it adds a little character to the picture.

    What a cool idea for a photo. Perhaps the toddler will play ball next time πŸ™‚

    Its a brilliant capture and you can make out you and the cuddly toddler very clearly which is sometimes hard to do in a shadow.
