"I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see..."
These words are from "My Shadow", a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson. He goes on to describe what fun he has with his shadow, jumping his up and down and even tricking it by going out early before the sun is up. There is something fascinating and magical about shadows, especially when children are involved. Of course, Stevenson lived in a time before cameras, so he had no idea that you can have even more fun with shadows if you have a camera. Here is an image of me with Ella, and the bright space between our shadows makes the shape of a dove. Keenemomma's picture also contains a playful bird shape, this time in the form of the shadow she has deliberately created with her hands.
See you soon, for some camera phone fun!
