Shadows on the Downtown Mall

About four O:clock the sunlight on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall becomes strong and dramatic. The pavement in areas where the sun shines through between buildings ¬†becomes alive with the fascinating and brooding shadows of mall patrons. Watching these shadows separate from their “owners”¬† a thousand stories leap to mind–what might be happening–what could happen shortly. There’s something far more mysterious about a shadow with it’s dark and ambiguous implication of a person rather than the literalness of the specific individual.
