I walked with Lauren on the greenway this afternoon. Neither of us could even remember the last time we walked there. It’s been closed a good bit lately thanks to all the rain, but it was open, dry … and simply glorious today. Bright blue skies and 42 degrees (to all my readers facing much colder/wetter please know we did appreciate all of that – and we thought of you!)
The photo above was inspired by the lovely Instagram stories of ocean_bythesea and how she captures such beautiful movement in the shadows. Especially the shadows of bare and nearly bare branches. Like I saw on today’s walk.
Lauren and I were completely caught up in our conversation (mostly about books and life, as always) when I first noticed the shadows.
I’m sure she’d have been a willing companion if I’d asked to pause for a photo (or a video), but I didn’t. I waited until we finished our walk and then I walked down the path in a different direction. I found the shadows. and I wish I’d paused our conversation to capture two pairs of shoes instead of one.
