Shadow Railing

The shadow of a handrail casts a zigzag pattern on a set of stairs

Zach, David and I were plagued by cloudless skies during our photo-outing last weekend. The harsh sunlight gave us plenty of reason to stay inside the walls and rooms of Fort Macon but some of the shadows being created were themselves interesting subjects.

    Such a plain but extremely cool shot. Love it! Great texture in the stairs and that zig-zag shadow just seals the deal.

    That shadow is awesome, also really like the cut marks or whatever those ridges are in the steps.

    Great abstract, Curt. I like the contrast and especially in b&w.

    A well spotted abstract. Looks good enough to hang in a modern art gallery.

    That really is a very clever piece of work, Curt. A great shot in B&W too.
