For day 1 of the Munich Artists self portrait photo challenge, I snapped photos of my shadow, my shoes, and a white line. The encounter with this white line was not planned. I went to a specific grocery store where I could buy lemon diet coke, a rare and cherished beverage on a sweltering summer day and met the line as I exited my car.
Closing the door of the car, I looked down and saw how strong my shadow was so I decided to take a photograph. I liked how the shadow and the white line interacted so I ended up playing a little bit with the line before heading into the store. The last photo in this series is one I really like because it looks like the white line is coming out of my head. I don’t like the tire to the right and I won’t be able to crop it out but I will remove it in photoshop. I just wanted to share the raw photos before I take them and manipulate them into an art piece.
