This week's theme for my Project 52 group was "shadows". I guess to tie in with Groundhog Day. As soon as I read the theme I knew what I wanted to do, I just had to wait for the right sunny morning for it. Yesterday the sun cooperated. : ) Every time it's a sunny morning at the bus stop my son likes to play this game where he steps on my shadow. And then I move all around and he chases it and tries to stomp on my head and I pretend it hurts. He thinks it's hilarious. I'm sure people who see wonder what on earth we are doing, because I'm sure it looks silly. Here are my shots.
I like how you can see my shadow just peeking out from behind him. And I have this thing about liking the way his head looks from behind. This might sound weird but sometimes when I sit in church and look at the backs of the heads in front of me I notice things like how some of the men have totally weird shaped heads and strange ears and hairlines that go way down their necks. Yep...I notice the weirdest things! But I like my boy's head from the back and his little ears sticking out and his little dent in the middle of his neck. Do you other mom's notice weird things like that?
Running to stomp on my head. He's holding a piece of bread as a last minute breakfast since I didn't realize all he had eaten was yogurt and I didn't have time to make anything because of the bus coming. Just keeping it real for you!
I love, love, love this. The shadow of the tree in the background, the winter branches all blurred and his sweet serious face. He always squints his eyes like that if I tell him not to be so silly. Most of the photos before this had his tongue out or his eyes closed (on purpose). Guess it makes me appreciate this one more.
Have a great weekend!! If you get a chance check out more of the project 52er's over here.
