You have a poet's eye and soul, brattcat. But you know that . . .

I agree, the long shadows of the season make for great self-portraits... beautifully presented here.

Looks like she's following you :)
I think you're right though, December is a great shadow month!

Be careful, don't be like Peter Pan, don't lose your shadow!..

My suggestion for a long shadow photo is to be standing on the beach a little before sunset so that the shadow is case on the sand.

Very cool shadowy images of you. I wish I were there taking a sunny walk and making shadows together.

Clever, dramatic sequence. It immediately made me think of the opening lines of Eliot's The Hollow Men:

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw.

Taller and very much thinner in my case Brattcat! Great idea!

Hermeticism at its best!

Second try: "Hermetic poetry" at its best!

After looking around Wikipedia, I realized that, while in Italian "hermeticism" brings to mind Hermetic Poetry, in English it has many more connotations. Maybe because Hermetic Poetry was invented here.

Beautiful and intriguing silhouettes of you!

Great figure. And legs!
