culinary shadows

For several months each year the sun sets across the Hudson River between these two buildings, flooding an intense amount of light directly into our kitchen windows. Each night as we cook dinner, there is an endless number of culinary shadows dancing on the walls. We are about to lose the sun as it travels south along the horizon towards the next season, so I thought I would share a few shadows from my collection. All taken with my iPhone, of course!

I love this. It's like a mini novel in pictures. I think I see a lab tube.

What a fun peek into your kitchen! I'm glad you subtitled it - I was stumped on the sushi shot! Of course it was obvious once I knew. :)

So nice... each shot could very easily stand alone, but they work wonderfully together! I like everything about these, (colors, textures, the varying opacity of shadow...) amazing work, U.M.!

Intriguing photos. Each one is so clear,yet mysterious.

Ethereal shots! Fabulous!

IF I HAD A SHADOW

If I had a shadow as big as the sky,
I never would fear, and I’ll tell you why:

My shadow would save me from dragons and things
That fly in the night with terrible wings;

My shadow would keep me away from the beast
That sniffs in the west and sniffs in the east,

Hungry for children who play all alone,
Hoping to feast upon blood, upon bone;

My shadow would be my protector and knight
To keep fear at bay, to banish all fright.

I’m so glad my shadow is always nearby,
Though it’s not nearly as big as the sky!
