The Shadow

By gpimages
I thought I would double up today - another from my UAE theme and also joining in the Saturday Shadows theme.

This is one from the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Did you know that in typical UAE thinking the original plans had to be reigned in because the mosque was originally designed to be the biggest in the world, bigger than Mecca (Makkah) itself, the holiest city in Islam and this could not be permitted.

The double shadow apparently appearing from just one person was an accident really as I only realised this afterwards in processing.

Thank you for looking.

Also thank you Fabio, Trev, Sandy, Arne, and Francis for taking the time to write a comment - and for your votes - for my 'Life is Hard'.

Have a great weekend !

A fine Saturday Shadows capture, Graham, the silhouetted figure suits Halloween, the double shadow giving it extra spookiness! 💀👍

Great contrast with the harsh light and silhouette and shadow, great composition.

I like what you did here. Would not have noticed the double shadow if you had not remarked on it.
