Thematic Photographic's theme this week is Shadows.

I have always liked the shadows that are thrown by late afternoon sunshine,
especially in autumn or winter.
For example, the shadows on this hillside accentuate the corrugations of
an ancient Maori fortification (pa) site
The shadows take over in a patch of native bush (N.Z. for woods or forest).
These cricket nets are waiting for summer to return:
Meantime, kids play rugby in the shade:
Elsewhere on the grounds of my school the shadows have turned
the building blue -
and the sun and shade between them bring out the colours
of the flax bush:
“We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm - yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.”
