In New York City our hotel room was on the 23rd floor and had amazing views. We came back to the hotel one day to rest a bit before heading back out that night. As I was relaxing I realized that the afternoon sun was blazing through the windows creating an interesting looking shadow on the headboard. I grabbed my camera, trying to capture something interesting. I had to work quickly–in the winter the sun doesn’t like to stay in the sky very long and its movement is more obvious when you’re trying to play with its effects.
I edited it in black and white as well, but I think I like the color better.
Either way, I have a really long shadow-head. Ha! Rock the Shot has challenged its readers to take an interesting self portrait and I think this fits the bill. If you want to play along head over to www.RockTheShotForum.com. February’s challenge should be posted soon.

Good one. Length of shadow (cool idea) would never occur to me in that situation. The only time that occurs to me is when me and the girls are running on the sidewalk and see who is “taller”. 🙂
Lovely, creative shot. I think I prefer the color better. It’s such an amazing reddish background!
