I've taken this shot several times, but it was always by accident. But I suppose everybody with a camera has to do it at one time or another, so here's my intentional shadow self-portrait.

(If I look cold, it's because I was.)

Well, you dont look cold but your shadow seems to have shrunk a bit, maybe IT was cold?

Frost? In North Carolina? I'm cold just LOOKING at it...and I'm Canadian!

Actually it wouldn't have been nearly so brutal that day if there hadn't been about a 20 knot wind to go along with the chill. If you could find a windbreak, it wasn't so bad. Unfortunately, that's not such an easy thing to find on a sod farm.

What was I doing on a sod farm in Jacksonville, NC early on a chilly Sunday morning you ask? Well I'll tell ya this much... I was getting some pretty cool photos -- and the cool part had nothing to do with the weather. But if I get much deeper into it than that, I'm going to be stealing someone else's thunder, and I try not to do that. But as soon as she breaks the story, I'll tell ya all about it.

'Cause it's really JC's story to tell. But you can ask her... a little prodding wouldn't hurt anything.
