This post is part of The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Shadowed
We all are aware of the universal meaning of shadow and that shadowed is the past tense of shadow. This word is used as a noun and a verb.
Noun: 1. a dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface.
2. used in reference to proximity, ominous oppressiveness, or sadness and gloom.
Verb: 1. envelop in shadow; cast a shadow over.
2. follow and observe (someone) closely and secretly. (Google Search)
While we were gazing at our albums for photographs to best fit this challenge, we came across few that would give a photographic explanation of the different meanings of shadow as explained above. We were excited to share them here. Give a read!
1. The photograph below was clicked on a winter day when the Sun was just behind us; creating a dark area produced by our body that came between rays of light and the terrace surface.
2. The next photograph was taken during one of our journeys where this sheep was found to be sitting in the middle of the road away from the flock.The lamb looks so gloomy. We see the shadow of an argument on the family. Wonder if they really had one.
3. Below are few photographs where we can see the road shadowed by a camel cart and a structure, that stands in the middle of the road; and the forest path is shadowed by the trees, producing a cooling effect.
4. Finally, watch this monkey. We happened to capture the movements of this monkey. Wonder who was shadowed by this cunning creature.
