The archetype SHADOW

.
A shadow attempts to kindle a shadow candle.

Then comes lightbearer in the shadowlands . . . and there is light.
.
Happy 7th day of Chanuka.

UPDATE: Toby alerted me to a meme called Shadow Shot Sunday down in Australia at "Hey Harriet" blog. Let's try it!

Really like the top photo. I have a photo of the Menorah in Martin Place for you. Should have used it today but didn't have it when I put the photos up. Will use it next week. Happy Hannukah.

That top shadow is wonderful. It shows the hand deliberately trying to see the light, the search for the blessing of lights. A hand reaching to to the right and proper thing. It shows its motion as a labor of love. Beautiful!
