He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty...Psalms 91:1

I shot this shadow image of my husband and me on April 11, 2009.. We were
visiting my hometown of Exeland, Wisconsin where I grew up... (population
approximately 200) ... We were going for a walk at 5:30 PM when I noticed our
long shadows and of course I felt compelled to take a picture of it:)

The United Methodist church in front of us is where we got married December 27, 1969...Since I shot this picture the church has had a new addition fellowship dining hall built on and a little bit bigger now.

We won't be visiting Exeland as much anymore since mother is no longer living in this little town and is in the rest home now. There are many memories from my past here..but we need to move forward such as our shadows on the road.

    I love shadows and this is an excellent entry to the theme!!! It's a nice looking town that you grew up in and it is interesting to us, to see the church that you was married in : )

    My first thought was American Golthic in shadow!! Moving forward is always good, as long as we don't discard the past. I'm sure you'll always have fond memories of this area.

    Such a beautiful keepsake shot and so....right for the theme. Your shadow reminds me of the beautiful African carving I bought in Majorca.
