Student photographer's analysis of the photo:

The reason I took this picture is because I thought it would be cool to have a picture showing a shadow. I like the way the shadow is shown on the right and left side of the picture. Only the light is between. I also took the picture since it kind of looked scary. When I look at the picture, it looks weird because it looks dark and at the same time, it looks bright. From my view, it looks like there is only one way to walk in. I like taking pictures of both shadows and light combined.
