This is my first time participating in Shadow Shot Sunday, a weekly photo meme over at Hey Harriet. I've just recently gotten interested in playing with light and dark in my photographs, and haven't done much about it yet. But I'm eager to see what others have done, and maybe get some inspiration.
This little critter visited our balcony back in October. He was obviously lost - we don't have any grass or corn crops growing out there! In the photo it looks like he's missing a leg, doesn't it? Well, the other one was there - just didn't show up in the shot for some reason. I took this with my Canon PowerShot A710IS digital camera. I'm constantly being amazed at what I can do with this little camera - for this one, I wasn't even using the macro setting, just the built-in telephoto feature. Still got a pretty good close-up of the visitor and his shadow. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
