Dinosaur Shadow

  1. Nearly sinister, but charming in a way, perhaps because of that lavender tinged wall. I wonder if the nature of the shadow would have been so apparent without the title.

  2. Too heavily influenced by its title I think.

  3. I’m not really fussed about the title or what the shadow is as I find that (like ‘Play Equipment’) this has a playful feel to it: mainly engendered by the tilt and the writing in the picture. So one has this interesting set of transitions across the colour of the wall along with a seemingly irrelevant, spoken-from-a-dream word set.

    Second time round I did see an ichy-something dinosaur.

  4. All I get is the “stargazing buddies”. Shadow isn’t strong enough to hold me.

  5. The subtle shadow did not strike me at first, it was the picture skew and text in the picture.

    The bit in the corner seems unecessary.

  6. Great fun. I would have seen the shadow at once even without the title, because I, too, once took a dinasaur picture featuring the shadow of a plant. (No, I’m not a huge dinosaur fan.) The bit in the lower left corner distracts me, but I agree that the lavender wall is a terrific asset.

  7. Very much like the lavender wall — I have one a similar color. The shadow is quite interesting on first view, but I think the ‘Stargazing buddies” picture on the wall overwhelms it some.

  8. Even though I now know where that dinosaur shadow is it still takes me a time to find it upon each (and there have been many) view of this. Unlike Christina I think the picture is needed here to camoflague the shadow. It does overwhelm which in this shot works. Without it that shadow, for me, would have been much more obvious.
