Makes My Monday: Me and My Shadows

Strolling the Virginia State Fair, last Sunday.

When I looked down and saw all four of us holding hands a la paper doll cutouts, somehow I contorted my free hand to extract the camera from my purse. (No, that's not a gas mask or porcine snout I'm wearing, but the camera's telltale shadow.)

Family at the fair togetherness Makes My Monday.

FANTASTIC picture! Love IT! Now - when you print it and hang it in your house - you are wearing a brimmed sun bonnet/HAT...at the state fair (go look again, you'll see it)...a very picturesque scene and one is left to wonder how in the world that shot was obtained! Hope all if well and hoping surely our paths will cross one day soon!
