The thoughts of Shadows brings to mind Magritte paintings, mystery novels, Carl Jung and his shadow side of the self work.  To look into the shadows of the self is a scary thing for "What horror will I find about myself" yet Jung thought that power and freedom could be found in the shadows with a cast of light.  I think that facing the shadow side and to acknowledge its existence brings a wholeness to the self however this not always the easiest thing to do.  What is in the shadows for you?

my favorite is 'the man on the flow' It's lonely in a lovely way.
...and it all comes together in the main piece nicely. Interesting to keep it so high key throughout... adds to the anxiety.

I like the dreamscape quality of all the images, Bill. Particularly, the complexity and softness of the top post, and the simplicity of the black and white image that's just above the bottom post. Your style is very engaging.
