War Shadow

This is really spooky – the shadow of a person made by the atomic bomb at Hiroshima. It’s al that is left of a once living breathing human being.

It reminds me of a documentary on land artist Andy Goldsworthy. He was walking down a street when it began to drizzle. Without warning he lay down on the pavement, stayed there for a few minutes, then walked away, leaving a rain shadow that was soon swept away by the rain.
