Me And My Shadow
“I was crying because I can’t get my shadow to stick on.”
“It has come off?”
Then Wendy saw the shadow on the floor, looking so draggled, and she was frightfully sorry for Peter. “How awful!” she said, but she could not help smiling when she saw that he had been trying to stick it on with soap.
Peter Pan and Wendy
Try as it might, the shadow just couldn’t keep up with the fledgling great blue heron soaring across the channel, passing by the concrete walls.
(The photo looks like a picture of an eons-old fossil, doesn’t it?)
Thanks to Paula and WordPress for the Thursday’s Special Non-Challenge Challenge nudge. Paula, forgive me for submitting wgain, but this shadow photo is special to me.
And also thanks to Sue Llewellyn for the Word A Week: Underneath challenge. What can be more underneath than a shadow?
Thanks again to Ed Prescott for the Sunday Stills: Birds challenge.
And thanks also to Michelle for the Weekly Pet Challenge Roundup nudge.
