Project Shadow had the XplorMor Community chasing shadows across the Globe!
Project Shadow took place on the Equinox, September 22, 2013. Over 1000 people from more than 50 countries joined the event. Photos were posted from 30+ of those countries, and 20+ states in the USA. Many more participated through “likes” and comments.
Information about Project Shadow:
Project Shadow aims for participants to post photos of shadows on the September Equinox when the “Earth is not tilted toward or away from the Sun and the length of the day is the same at all points on the Earth’s surface.” The goal is to capture shadows around the planet on a single day as seen through each person’s perspective, and to promote getting out there and sharing the experience through photography. A shadow could be of a building, your cat, a tree, you… possibilities are endless… get as creative as you wish! See links below for examples of shadow photography.
The reason for participating is to have fun. It’s about coming together as a community and sharing our vision, creativity and a moment of our day. The photos may also allow us to see other parts of the world. And, if the weather is bad and shadows cannot be seen, add some innovation.
Everyone is welcome.
If you would like to be in the image, that’s your choice!
