Ideas and Imagery #76

Have you ever wanted to turn yourself into a lamp post?  Me neither until this shot.  I was out in the early morning and the long shadow created by a nearby lamp ended partway between where I was standing and the end of a long flat driveway.

I'm not sure exactly why this caught my eye, but it did.  I wandered over and as I got closer my shadow was reaching out along side it, giving me the idea for this shot.

I thought this shot was interesting and very surreal.  Naturally our shadows don't often stretch this far away, so this feels a bit eerie as a result.  I thought the pavement added some interesting texture to the photo, and the symmetry of the shadow is what compelled me to center my subject.

Found photos are some of my real plan but to just go out and see.
