Pulvis et Umbra Sumus Written by Mike Ross Lancaster Hot Air Balloon Festival “The eye is always caught by light, but shadows have more to say.” Gregory Maguire 40.040000 -76.262084 Lancaster, PA, USA Related 16 thoughts on “Pulvis et Umbra Sumus” I love this shot, Mike. A fabulous silhouette and a big of a mystery, too. We have to search for the person that “matches” the silhouette. This really works in black and white. It heightens the sense of drama and mystery.
