Shadow Ladders

Shadow ladder  digital photography

Between the idea 
And the reality
Between the motion 
And the act 
Falls the shadow 
-T. S. Eliot

Lovely poem and a picture that accentuates the sentiment, Meera, I liked it!

Stan Hughes said...

Wow. Nice light and shadow.

You have a good eye for composition, Meera! Now, if ever I were caught in a high-rise like that with fire raging, I'd seriously find myself between a rock and a hard place... the flight of steps looks so flimsy :-).

Thank you Padmaja -I too like that poem by T S Eliot which ends with the famous lines: "this is the way the world ends, Not with a bang but with a whimper"

Stan Hughs, thanks -I really appreciate it!

Hema, those are my thoughts too :))) and thank you for your compliments on composition :) reading your comments I am grinning happily ear to ear!

Kathy and Crystal, Thank you so very much :) It is so much fun composing with a camera too - I am hoping it will hone the way i look at things and help with my sketching and drawing.

the light in the pic is amzing ando so is the shot....really really love it. as for Eliot I hope we go out with a bang as we started and not with a whimper, withering away :(

meera said...

B, Thank you :) yes, I am with you -I would rather not share Eliot's ending of 'the hollow man' either!!!
