Out for a frolic with the dogs on the beach late last week. Although it was still bitterly cold the sun was bright enough to cast lovely shadow shapes on the sand.
Poppy, the poor deaf-(dumb)-and-blind spaniel – although spritely for all of her 15 years – needs to be ‘guided’ on the lead, but the whippets move around so quickly it’s impossible to pose them for photographs.
By the time I’ve pressed the shutter button on my iphone camera, they have whizzed through the frame. So most of these shots are ‘pots’. Some of the unusual angles and blurred motion images are surprisingly refreshing and convey the exuberance of the moment much better anyway.
It is a day to be joyful and these are my cast of shadow highlights which mirror our mood on this bright but cold April day: playing with space as the absence of light in mobile, prancing shadows.
