With leaves now on the trees, you certainly wouldn't get the same sorts of starkly dramatic shadows today. Nice shot.


A shadow, a shadow, a shadow you say?
A shadow is coming to dinner today?

Oh, what shall we feed it, and what will it eat?
Just toss down a few rays of light at its feet,

And watch its dark mouth gobble up every ray,
But be sure, my friend, you don’t get in its way;

Keep out of the light so it won’t gobble you.
(If I were the hostess, that’s just what I’d do.)

A shadow is easy to feed, so they say,
So welcome your shadow to dinner today.

wow, this house is huge! I can't imagine living there with three porches. There's probably more porches out back.

Very nice!!

Wonderful shadows, and a beautiful old house. It would be one of my favorites, too.

One would never know that house is surrounded by so many small homes. At one time it stood alone in a greater expanse of land. PGma
