Over the step

By helenlinda
I took this yesterday at Southend. A bike was secured to a railing next to the step - I love how shadows travel up and over objects in their way. The effect here of the shadow travelling behind and then up and over the step produced this very strange image. The photo seems as if it is two separate images placed one on top of the other.
Thanks for looking and particular thanks go to Joline , Colleen and Alan for their much appreciated User Awards for The Crossing-2

I love this kind of shadow, well observed Helen. It has detached itself and is trying to escape.
