Shadow Shot Sunday - Of Shadows and Leaves

I thought I'd try something new and submit a post for Shadow Shot Sunday.

I spotted this leaf and shadow shot while out on one of my morning walks. I loved the delicate pattern the dry leaves created on the leaf next to them.

Delightful! You have a good eye--and it helps to have a handy camera!


If I had a shadow as big as the sky,
I never would fear, and I’ll tell you why:

My shadow would save me from dragons and things
That fly in the night with terrible wings;

My shadow would keep me away from the beast
That sniffs in the west and sniffs in the east

Hungry for children who play all alone,
Hoping to feast upon blood, upon bone;

My shadow would be my protector and knight
To keep fear at bay, to banish all fright.

I’m so glad my shadow is always nearby,
Though it’s not nearly as big as the sky!

Thank you for the lovely comment Se'Lah. Your chance to catch up is my chance to fall behind. I go back to work when school starts up. Wouldn't trade it for the world, though.

That day I took it easy and went for mileage. That particular walk was about three miles long. I have been known to come to a screeching halt in the middle of a power walk to take a picture of something I caught out of the corner of my eye. I thought about getting one of those bumper stickers to adorn myself with: Warning walker makes frequent stops.
