Photos on the journey #401


Man in the shadow.

I stole this silhouette while eating lunch on a quiet New Mexico restaurant patio . The man was so still and deep in thought. He seemed to have a little mystery about him.

I don’t generally like to snipe photos. I prefer to make my presence known, otherwise I become the man in the shadow. I am trying to not hide myself any longer. I have spent way too much time in the shadows. It can be cold there and the warmth of the sun is so much more inviting.

Ah, basking in the warmth of the long shadows.

Grace follows me like a shadow, she seems never more than the length of her shadow away. Took this one on my front porch with the rising sun. I didn’t want to miss the moment so I captured it with my I phone. The height of not much effort.†††en theos†††jim

I know we can get up on the wrong side of the bed, we can also drive on the wrong side of the road. I always say I am on the wrong side of the camera if it is pointed at me. I am left-handed and so I am on the right side of my brain most of the time. Are you?

I found this unidentified insect perched on this blade of reed grass. I wanted to try and see what kind of bug it was, but I was blocked by the fact there was  a yucky (a real scientific term) large puddle on the sunny side of the leaf. I was seemingly stuck on the wrong side of the leaf!

But the more I pondered my view, I was only on the wrong side of one view, I had a marvelous view from where I was, right or wrong?

Enjoy life from whatever side you happen to be on at the time†††nada te turbe†††††jim

I like the shadow in the sand, seemingly echoing the flare of the sun.
