Shadow Portrait

North Elizabeth Train Station

North Elizabeth Train Station

On our recent trip to the East Coast, we stayed in New Jersey and took the New Jersey Transit train into Manhattan every day. Though I did miss the excitement and convenience of staying in the city, it made no sense to pay for hotel rooms for 5 people for 5 nights. Not when we could stay with family for nothing. The train we took was usually a double decker, also fun.

I couldn’t pass the opportunity to take a shadow portrait of my family while we were waiting for the train.

    It would be an interesting break to use a train for that purpose, knowing that it was short-term.

    Fantastic clarity in these shadows..and what a wonderfully creative way to do a family portrait.

    this is m18.
    i came here from twitter.

    i like this photo,
    ’cause the shadow that four people line up is cute and yellow line attracts me to this photo.

    in japan this line is narrower.
    so when i looked at it, i was amazing!!!

    i am looking forward to updating new photo. 🙂
