Hello lovely Steemians !
Today I would like to submit my very first entry to the SHADOW PHOTO CONTEST, hosted by the amazing @melinda010100 ^^ You can find her nice contest HERE .. I was browsing my old photo library for this special picture. It was recorded in Cardiff, Wales. I have been there for one year. It was an academical year-abroad at Cardiff University where I worked in the field of Chemical Biology during my Master of Science.
I was training Kung Fu already for some years before that long-time travel. So I decided to directly join the local Kung Fu classes starting from the day I arrived there. Here you can see me during an attempt to prepare the perfect shadow for the contest ^^ .. Hehe, it was just a joke. It was not especially for the contest, but rather a super funny jumping exercise. You can WATCH YOUR SHADOW while jumping TO CONTROL YOUR BODY TENSION ;)
I hope you enjoyed my entry for the Shadow Contest and that you could learn something about how a shadow can be actively used as a funny training technique ^^.. By the way, "JUMP OVER YOUR OWN SHADOW", is a translation from the GERMAN SAYING "Ueber den eigenen Schatten springen", which means: to overcome oneself or to go beyond your own possibilities ;)
This picture was taken for me by a friend with his Canon Camera. It was during Kung Fu training several years ago in Cardiff, Wales.
