Self-Portrait in Shadow

A shiny, dark blue gate meets the rough concrete of a sunlit footpath, where a thick, irregular line of white paint runs along the concrete. The gate’s horizontal slats angle sharply up the left side of the photo. A shadow covers half of the gate and half of the footpath, an amorphous shape beginning at th ebottom edge and tapering right to the top where it suggests the head and shoulders of a person wearing a hat. On the gate’s second slat down from the corner is a small, luminous red rectangle with sharp edges.
