While sunning ourselves on a friends deck I noticed the shadow began to take on a life of their own as the sun moved toward the western horizon. We usually take more photos of the fog on the San Francisco skyline, but this afternoon the shadow were more interesting. As the stucco was collected and reflected the light creating textures of watercolor paper I knew right away how I was going to edit them to move away from snap shots to Art in a way only digital photography can. Edited this way the photos became, perhaps, illustrations in an unwritten graphic novel, especially with this final photo.
