The existential photographer - reveal yourself

Challenge #1 in the Metaphotography series. Hosted by activa.
Challenge has finished
Without a meaning the photos are nothing but pixels. The photographer projects himself/herself in the picture to create a meaning. The viewers again create a meaning through their own lenses of prejudice, judgement and memory. In the end what we find that existence of a photo is always particular, unique and individual. So show us a photo that tells a story about you as a photographer - literally. You should be a part of the picture (or your shadow or any body part). Direct self-portraits are not encouraged but it is upto you to be creative and change a self-portrait to a story. Add a heading and a brief description about yourself.

Shadowman on the beach

19th place
Here I am on the beach in Punta Cana greeting the early morning sun. I prefer to stand behind the camera capturing natural and built environments as they exist wihout the intrusion of people. I am an introvert with a dry sense of humour. Hence, I have created an entire gallery of "Shadowman" images documenting my travels. As a budding amateur photographer, I am learning to search for light that reveals texture as well as lines, forms and shapes that provide balance, symmetry, dissonance and tension in photographic images.
