Shadows and Reflections

Cover of Shadows and Reflections

We walk through the world, our world, day and night, looking at it, being in it. But seldom do we realize that there is an another world hidden in plain sight. A world of beauty and darkness, almost monochrome, almost surreal - the world of shadows and reflections - in our streets, our parks, our houses and our gardens, anywhere, only if we bother to look at.

This book is an attempt at looking at this beautiful, ethereal, transient world of shadows and reflections.

When a life or plan feels ultimately unsatisfying, I find it’s because I’ve forgotten to include:

  • what makes me happy
  • what’s smart (long-term good for me)
  • what’s useful to others.

– Derek Sivers in Happy, Smart, and Useful

About Me

I am a web developer and designer based in Saratoga. I love to make useful beautiful things - be it online tools(exifile), services(littlereads), websites, crochet items or photographs. I love learning, pushing my boundaries. My dream is to stand in the intersection of technology, art and outdoors and make an impact on the world.
