    I love shadows too Rachel. The perfect foil for light. Without them and their contrast how could we appreciate the light?

      Truly true. Shadows are also catalysts for philosophical reflections, right Robyn?

        Hahaha! what would we do without them?

    A few years ago, I was taking shadow pictures of myself in various ways; with the dog, with a shovel, a rake, at night under a street light. I was obsessed, too. Gee, maybe I was obsessed with myself??? Oh, well, I got over it…and deleted the photos. It was fun, though. 😂

      You were on a creative binge. What’s bad about that?

    Out walking with 2 year old, and he noticed our shadows, long, in front of us. ‘Nanna!’ he said, pointing to my unmistakable shape on the pavement.

    I agree that toddlers are obsessed with shadows. Maybe Shakespeare was right about our stage of life resembling the first one!

      Yesterday I saw the shadow of rose leaves on a young man’s shaved head. So touching. No photo, just my eyeballed.
