The Shadow People



Dark is the forest

When no one else is around

Shadowpeople walk


- Yes that's a simple free-form haiku!


When I shot the picture, I didn't think much of it. The shadowpeople were far away, there wasn't that much light and I had to zoom all the way in to 85mm. Once the B&W image was stored on my computer (image was taken last year) I didn't even notice the rays of light until this morning. I cropped it just a little, a small levels adjustment and it was worth posting.


A lesson to never give up on forgotten pictures. Have a stroll through your harddisk sometime on a rainy day and you'll see.


When I was tracking the search terms people used to find my images via google, I noticed that 'shadowpeople' was one of the search terms people used. When I googled it myself, I found out that shadowpeople actually are an (un)real phenomenon!


~Edit 10-06-09:

For a long time it looked like this picture would be my first to reach 1k views, but then winter turned into spring and everyone started searching for dandelions!

So instead this picture turned out to be the second to reach 1k.

Thanks for watching everyone!
