Hello everyone! 😎 📷
It's the 298th Shadow Hunting (SMaSh or Show Me a Shadow) contest in a row. One of the oldest contests on the Hive blockchain, it has been running continuously for more than five and a half years and regularly pays out rewards for interesting shadows.
Do you have some nice shadows to show us? Don't be shy. This isn't a rigorous photography competition where strict juries judge framing, lighting, contrast, colors, resolution, and so on.
Just a cool shadow, a moment in time captured on your camera or phone, and that's all you need.
Shadows are everywhere, especially on a sunny day outside.
So, are you ready for Shadow Hunting?
Trust me, you won't find this opportunity anywhere else. You go for a walk, take photos of shadows, post them, and get rewarded. Where else have you seen this? It's awesome!
Did you know that the community paid out $16,196.10 in rewards last year? $7,485.42 author rewards and $8,710.68 curator rewards? Source.
What you're waiting for?
I only use my phone to catch shadows, and I don't consider myself a good photographer. But shadows are everywhere, and if you're up to the challenge, you're sure to catch a great one.
Here are some of my photos, some from the house and some from the street, as an example for shadow hunting, just to give you a feeling.
Window roller shade
This is the shade of a window blind on a wall. The window is in the kitchen, in front of the lens are the leaves of a flower in a pot on the windowsill.
Shadow of bicycle pedals on the corridor floor.
Shadow of the rear wheel of a bicycle
We are still on the bicycle, but on the other side, now. The shadow of the rear wheel with chain, seat, and structure, on the corridor wall.
Shadows on the houses
I went for an afternoon walk. It's a sunny day, it's winter and the sun is low on the horizon, the shadows of the neighboring buildings appear on the facades of the houses. In both photos, the shadows of the trees are presented on the walls.
That's all for now, thanks for your attention and I hope you'll publish some of your shadow photos :)
