Shadow Shot Sunday 187 - From the roof of the Duomo - Milan


The sun came out, the shadows came out, and this was the view from the roof of the duomo onto the ant-sized crowds below....


And I loved the patterns and configurations the crowds made - black inkblots against a white paper background....


They almost look like hieroglyphics - some strange kind of writing on the page, musical notes on a score - I love it when the familiar is defamiliarised in this way through scale and perspective - and the sheer wonder of photographic imagery,,,,,

I am unable to determine the actualsise of the crowd - the shadows add confusingly to the people count from above...it feels like a very abstract painting. Excellent ant-like views!

A congregation of shadows. Wonderful patterns, and something fresh and new for SS.
