Silhouettes and shadows

THEME DAY: SHADOWS • Looking up from the bottom of the open-top shark tank of Manila Ocean Park, you can only see the sharks as silhouettes and as shadows on the surface of the water.

I can't think of any object that doesn't cast a shadow, so we are going to see a wide variety of images from City Daily Photo bloggers around the world. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants. I'm leaving for a three-day retreat this afternoon so I won't be able to see most theme day photos until Sunday evening at the earliest, so: Happy Theme Day, everyone!

I'd say things are going swimmingly for you on this theme day...sharks throw a pretty big shadow...

It looks like a partait, a shark parfait, but still, a partfait. And a blue parfait at that.

Jilly said...

Super shot. Fascinating to see shadows thru water. So different. Well done.

This is the most original image I have seen today. I find the sharks a bit unnerving, but probably this is the fascination of this photo.

Very nice one Hilda. The world of silence!

Priyanka Khot said...

Awesome!

sharks for shadow... hmmm...

since they are black... you could also give one of your favorites the name "Shadow".

A Happy May... have fun during the break.
