I took this photo this morning, early this morning not long after sunrise. I went out alone with my camera in order to get photos of sunrise shadows, hoping to get a few that would fit into my SoFoBoMo project. For those not aware of it, SoFoBoMo is an international photography project in which one has thirty-one days to produce a small book (PDF) of 35 photographs with appropriate text. This year the start date is July 1st and the end date is August 31st. One can choose any day within this time frame as the start point and begin the 31 day countdown. All photos used must be taken within that time frame.
Of course, I will be focusing on presenting images from a Jungian standpoint. The focus for this year’s book is “shadow.” That explains my shadow on the gravel between the rail tracks. This image actually teaches me something. As I travel my journey which has me trying to become as conscious of my self as possible, my shadow makes the journey with me. The only time I lose actual touch with my shadow, is when I physically leave the surface of the earth, have no contact with the earth. But even then, my shadow still exists, still can be traced on the earth as the shadow of a cloud or passing bird can be seen.
