The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #261


Sculpture made by Andy Goldsworthy from one entire Pilot whale skeleton.



On our last full day in Edinburgh it was so rainy we spent a few hours just looking at the exhibits in the Early People Gallery in the National Museum of Scotland.
It would take weeks to see everything in the entire museum.


Fore more Sunday Shadow Shots go here:

Ah, pity the poor pilot whale! :-(


MY SHADOWY FRIEND

My shadow and I are very best friends;
We walk hand in hand, though the sidewalk ends.

No matter the time of day or of night,
My shadow and I will always stick tight.

We don’t even think of drifting apart,
For shadow and I are one soul and one heart.

To have such a friend is heaven, you see,
For I love my shadow, and shadow loves me.
