Exercise 18 is about "Shadows," and this image was something I did, and not something that presented itself. When I took this, I was about to water my little tomato seedlings, and since our house is fronting the sunset, I cast a shadow when I passed by the terrace. It made me remember the Art of Composition exercise, so after watering the seedlings, I went to look for something to take a picture of.
The very first thing I saw was this bird decor my mom bought a year ago. It's a decor that is made to embellish a potted plant, and at first I hoped to frame a picture of the decor and the shadow together, but it seemed impossible. In the end, I just took a picture of just the shadow.
