On an over-cast day, shadows are a rare occurrence, much less meaningful shadows. But I had a very meaningful day with my only boy. I breathe thanks.
#138 In the shadow of an Amtrak train, the joy of a four-year-old boy.
#139 In the shadow of a really tall slide, his little feet getting bigger.
#140 In the shadow of an airplane hangar, the beginning of something big.
