Blue Star and Shadow Bike

Blue Star and Shadow Bike © 2008 Bo Mackison

Another shadow photo. Love the abstract quality of the lines. Madison is a big biking town with well maintained bike paths and routes nearly anywhere you may want to go. In this day of the $4 a gallon gas, there are even more bikes on the streets than ever before. There are even those hardy souls who bike year round, – yes, even with an annual snowfall of over 100 inches – but I prefer to think of myself as saner and wimpier, and my bike stays indoors when the snow flies.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

    This one’s in my sweet spot. I love the shadows.

  2. You really have an affinity and talent for shadows. Well done, Bo. 🙂

    I tend to like the shadows left by something more than the thing itself unless it’s something solid like a building that doesn’t leave interesting lines.

    And this one does.

  4. The way gas prices are headed, we all might be making shadows like these soon.

  5. Gandalf – yes, love those shadowy shots.

    Robin, Chris – Thanks.

    Montucky – Hey, it’s good for you, too!
