Shadow Shot Sunday

New York, NY
At the deli down the street from work


Because I like to make up rules as I go along, I've decided that regarding my current challenge, (see previous post here) photos count as long as I write something to accompany the photo.

So I took this photo after work the other night.  To be honest, I can't even tell you the name of the place.  I just stop in from time to time because it's open late and it's on the way to the train and they have good paninis and snacks and I can sit in the window and stare outside and people watch and wonder how long it's going to take to get home.  My kitchen is still somewhat dysfunctional, so I don't cook at home too much right now, and who needs to anyway in NY, what with all this great food everywhere.  The guys who work here have heard the whole story about my kitchen.  They're always trying to get me to take something home for breakfast the next morning, but I can't find it in my heart to tell them that I'm cheating on them in the mornings with the deli on my corner, where the guys can tell how much I've had to drink the night before by what I choose for a morning beverage.  Ginger ale for a hangover.  Fresh squeezed orange juice when I'm healthy...

Well, I had to read your previous post also, and I agree that photos count, even if no one else thinks so. I like this photo very much. It's simple, well composed, and the two words, or rather, the painted word and its shadow, make a sandwich of the light.
Thanks for coming by my place!

Yay! You're back! Good luck with the challenge of posting everyday. I love your writing so I'm glad you've decided to add words to your pics! Not that your photos can't stand alone without words, but your clever and funny writing seriously kicks arse! Love it!

I like the "inside" shadow shot! Very interesting!

I can't imagine living somewhere with that many eating choices!
