Stichting Don is a Foundation which funds Diabetes ,on the 14th of November it is World Diabetes day ,

This day Stichting Don organises a ‘one day Gallery’ in Amsterdam in the Westergasfabriek an evening where people have the chance to buy photos from different Photographers, all the money goes to Stichting Don.

I like the concept so I donate this picture to the Stichting.

The man behind Stichting Don is Maarten de Gruyter out of his own experience he started this and made it super successful,
so much respect for him how he always finds the energy to encourage people, to see the positive side of life .

The meaning behind this photo fits perfectly for that evening ..

The mysterious essence of the Shadow has intrigued mankind since the earliest beginnings of time,
the dark is part of the eternal cycle of sun and shadow that embraces the earth continually .

On a deeper level we can see the shadow as our alter ego who follows us as a constant reminder of our personal evolution and a side where we question our beliefs.

We seem to drawn to the shadow side, the place where lessons are learned, maybe an emotion felt or feelings experienced.

The side which make us realise and appreciate how beautiful the light life is.
To know one you must experience the other.
The shades are almost always temporary they are there to give depth to our lives.
To teach us.
and make us live with compassion and passion.

See You there and then!
