Sorry I'm late in posting. I've been away and frankly, haven't been in the mood to write a damn word lately. In the case of todays Shadow Shot submission, I didn't take the photo. It was sent to me by friends that attended the rallies for workers rights in the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison.
You can see more fantastic shadow shots and find out the guidelines for participation at the Hey Harriet Blog, and I strongly urge you to do so.

As for the photograph itself, I'm sure it was staged in the early morning shadows at the Capitol Building for our State. People have been there with signs for an extended period of time and many have not left to go home at night but choose to 'live in' on the Capitol grounds. As there have been thousands there, and one Saturday rally the crowd was counted as over 100,000 people, there have been no arrests.
I do have the idea of Shadow Shot Sunday in my head and have gotten into the habit of carrying my camera with me or usung the cell phone camera when I see an interesting shadow. I'll leave you with a couple from the past month that I like.
