Shadows on a Walk

The Weekly Photo Challenge is “Shadowed.”

I opted to take this theme literally as I enjoy taking photos of shadows when walking.

In the photo below I took a brief stroll during a break from work on a crisp fall afternoon.

As I continued down a paved circular path I noticed my shadow intersected the trees.

I walked several rounds on the path when I finally decided it was photo time.

In the next series my daughter and I enjoy a three mile cardio walk in our neighborhood.

We and our shadows are moving at a pretty good clip at this point.

I always chuckle when I observe these shadows as they’re long, much longer than my daughter and I.

We’re what you call petite.

I’m slightly taller than my daughter, and I top out at “5 feet nothing.”

Last but not least is our family shadow.

My husband, daughter and I enjoy another walk.  It’s a regular activity for us.

Most of the times, because of the time of day, our shadows lead the way.

I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!
