Playing in the shadows

It's so cold here at the moment, that it makes going out to explore incredibly difficult. The only good thing about winter here is the sunshine. I have to say that I'll take this cold over the gloomy overcast days of London any day. Resisting the urge to crawl into a ball to hibernate for the season is hard enough. But if you feel like no matter how wrapped up you are, the wind and rain will bitch-slap you in the face and their cousin humidity will seep into your clothing penetrating your bones. It all just starts to feels a little desperate. Don't get me wrong all this beautiful sunshine comes at a price, it's bitterly cold. Kissed by the ice queen herself cold. To go out is to have a plan, an end point preferably indoors with a tea/coffee at the end of it.

Needless to say that I'm currently suffering from inspiration for photography as I alway want to be indoors. I have however tried to use the sunshine to my benefit by experimenting with light. All the lovely professional photographers I know have always told me that learning to control light and how it affects your photos is very important. So here are my attempts, from the shadows on the buildings to the  shadows in my home.
