Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shadow Shot Sunday

The breakwater at Lexington, MI.

In comments, Magical Mystical Teacher offers this haiku:

On the breakwater
shadows thrust like railroad tracks
across a prairie.

Update 2:

Horizontal lines
Draw close, seek to converge at
Infinite distance

What a great shadow shot! Guess we'd better make use of all the sun we can. Think we may have to look a little harder for shadow shots before long!

Have a great week!

My Shadow Shot

Hi, all - and thanks.

Funny thing is, I wasn't even thinking about the Shadow Shot possibility as I took it. Just wanted a long view down the walkway. Somehow, that makes me appreciate it a little more.

Feel free to leave links here, like Mystic did.

I've posted a few other Lexington shots in the last few days. Charming little town.

Sometimes we'll have a cloudy day here in MI, and the sun will come out just in time to set. That should offer some interesting opportunities.

It was sunny today, and I got a few shots this frosty morning.

Mystic -
Haiku to you too.

Nicely done. That's a WOW! Now, why didn't I think of it?

A fine haiku gift
