The angle of the sun in our September sky provides a perfect opportunity to practice photographing shadows. A while back, I was watching Ethan jump on his pogo stick and smiled as I saw his long shadow jump away down the driveway whenever he bounced into the air. So I decided we’d try to go out and try to replicate that for I Heart Faces’ September photo challenge.
Update 9-19-13: The results from this photo challenge are in and my photo won 2nd place which is particularly gratifying because I really enjoyed making this photograph just for the purpose of the challenge. Winning 2nd place made Ethan happy, too, who was really “all done” with my creative streak after about 5 bounces.
