shadow shot sunday in manhattan




































have you ever gotten those eye drops from the eye doctor where they make your pupils gigantic so when you go out into the sunshine you can barely see? this is what I saw after I left the eye doctor the other day. I wondered at the time as I was taking this photo, if it would be in focus. upon my recovery I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered how nicely it came out.

Oh, yes, I know the drops you mean. My husband gets so annoyed when I have an appointment with my opthalmologist because they take a long time, and I can't go without a driver. We've finally figured out he can walk the dog while I'm in there, and I'll call him when I'm done. LOL
Love your picture. Super shadows.

Awesome shadows! And yes, I've gotten those eye drops - I have to get them at the end of the day otherwise I can't see the computer screen on which I work.

the shadow of the traffic signal comes across as a giant menacing monster-bug. rugged urban hard-edged; great capture. the man dressed in all-black contrasts nicely to the cold blue.

Hey Harriet said...

Haha! I can't say I've ever had that problem with eye drops but I love what you saw with your gigantic pupils!

that's really cool! Amazing when you focus on one kind of thing - it shows up everywhere. kind of like when your on top of a NYC building and all of a sudden your eyes catch a water tower & then you see them EVERYWHERE :)
