Can you tell I’m having fun revisiting my San Miguel trip in 2006? Sometimes its not necessary to include the actual subject. In the case of the lead image, I excluded it and photographed just the shadow. I like the simple graphic created by the color and shadow. In the image below, I included both the lamp and shadow. And much like the recent discussion about what to include and not include, I decided to include just a bit of the door and feature the lamp and shadow.
Only the shadow knows

She is right there…
Love the composition with the door in it. Another post that gives inspiration- thanks John!
The tone of the shadow on the second images almost makes it look like it is a pattern that has been painted on the wall.
John, Love all your San Miguel re-visits. It is a lovely area and so fabulous for photography.
I also prefer the ‘implied’ subject from shadows, too. This is beautiful.
Thanks for all of your kind comments.
