Shadows and Reflections



People are scared of shadows.


Because shadows are said to be associated with either sadness or mystery.

Not necessarily so.

Shadows teach us something.

We know that shadows appear and disappear depending on the available light.  Thus it tells us that life is fleeting and reminds us not to waste time.

No need to get scared of shadows.

“I like my shadow; it reminds me that I exist.”

Mehmet Murat ildan



Reflection in our lives

Life teaches us. Teaches a lot. Sadly we fail to realize this.

“Your life is a reflection… you don’t get what you WANT, you get what you ARE. You gotta BE it to SEE it.”

Steve Maraboli


“Light and shadow are opposite sides of the same coin. We can illuminate our paths or darken our way. It is a matter of choice.”

Maya Angelou

  1. It’s great to see you exploring the concept of shadows and reflections in your photography. The interplay between light and darkness can create such beautiful and dynamic images. It’s a reminder that every shadow has a source of light, and that we can find beauty even in the darkest of moments

  2. We don’t usually pay as much attention to our shadows as we do to our reflections. What we see in the mirror seems way more important then looking back to realize our shadow is following us no matter what. However, often times we are hiding in the darkness hoping to escape both reflections and shadows pretending it could help us leave no trace.
