Title: "Shadowtalking, Coit Tower (Oct 2010)"

I love the distortion of shadows - the world seems familiar and strange at the same time. To me one of the interesting things about shadows is how often we inherently recognize what is casting the shadow, even in the absence of the actual object. I'm also captivated by the indirect stories they tell of our existence.

This has the feeling of a significant, yet almost hidden, moment. Unlike most shadows, these particular ones seem almost to be showing us the internal structure of something, almost like an X-ray. And I love the combination of continuity and discontinuity when the shadows fall on more than one surface - they fit together in more ways than they would otherwise, creating meanings that they could not have had in isolation.
