Black and White Photos do the same while stripping away all the complications we as people see fit to fill our world with.<br /> <br /> Enjoy the Moments we seek to cherish.<br /> And the ones we never knew we had before the photo was taken.<br /> <br /> Some we are alone<br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/DougNZ/alone-in-a-storm"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/75301/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/crirox/steady-devil"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/77584/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/Veistim/every-raven-tress-2"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/71084/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br /> <br /> Some we are surrounded by the unknown<br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/mmntmr13/city-ghosts"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/78337/image_t5.jpg" /></a><br /> <br /> Some moments are staring us straight in the face<br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/Toolbazar/the-smurf"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/78060/image_t5.jpg" /></a><br /> <br /> While others are shared<br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/mgl001/the-decision"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/78041/image_t5.jpg" /></a><br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/Meutia/eaaaa"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/71575/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br /> <br /> But what remains the same is that within every moment there is an emotion. You just have to allow it to be seen, to be unleashed like a fire breaking from the lines you drew in the ground.<br /> <a href="http://shadowness.com/stiXits/fire"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item3/72654/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br /> <br /> </CENTER> Tue, 24 May 2011 03:37:56 -0400 Artist Features - May 12 http://shadowness.com/BlackWhitePhotos/forum/artist-features--may-12 Another week and another amount of brilliant submissions by our members.

After that, I will leave a comment on your wall to welcome you to the group. So it's not difficult! and I will be on top of adding new followers to the members list as much as possible :)<br /> <br /> The only difference between following and being a member is that followers can neither add artwork to the group or start topics.<br /> <br /> Last Updated <br /> May 13, 2011 Wed, 11 May 2011 23:26:26 -0400 The Faces of Life - Artist Features - May 4 http://shadowness.com/BlackWhitePhotos/forum/the-faces-of-life--artist-features--may-4 It's been about a week and a half since the groups last artist feature and as of now there isn't really a set time I may do these features(that may come as the group expands). But for today I wanted to showcase members who have submitted portraits so far.<br /> <br /> There is a great beauty in the faces we see in our lives, in the faces we know and the ones we don't.

My wish for this group and any that I made is that all the members are not simply contributors to the work that is shown here but are active members in the community(at least in the group). Shadowness is here greatly to help improve peoples skills in whatever medium of art they choose. In order for people to grow they need feedback and it is every other persons choice to either help another member(of the site and group) with what they think of their work. No one would get better if it were not for people either liking or not liking their work, if it were not for people telling them what they could do next time or what they did correctly this time.<br /> <br /> So, help your fellow members and be an active part of the Shadowness community and this group. If we all did a little we could accomplish a lot :) Tue, 19 Apr 2011 03:35:43 -0400
