P52 Week 5: Shadows
You know how some people are procrastinators and put things off until the very last minute when they could easily be done ahead of time, sparing those people a lot of stress in the end? I am not one of them.
Only this week I was.
I kept putting this photo off—and why? What's the big deal about taking a picture of a shadow?
I think my problem is that I didn't want to just take a picture of a shadow. I wanted it to mean something. So yes, this week I belonged to the procrastinator-overthinker club. When I finally walked out on the deck with my camera (in 62° sunshine in my bare feet) on Thursday, the first thing I saw was my Adirondack chair making this shadow on the deck, inviting me to dream of summer sunshine. I have always been a fan of summer with its days on the beach, warm breeze blowing, the sound of seagulls overhead, and flip-flops. Even though I live three hours from the nearest beach, I still feel like I've come home as soon as I smell the salty air.
So this shadow made me think of good things to come . . .
