Shadow Shot Sunday - Noel
Shadow Shot Sunday by Tracy in Brisbane arrives just before Christmas. So my theme is now set!
Christmas seems the time for children, the younger the more special the time. This is son Cameron at age 4 in 1994, the B&W edit utilized to cut the flash glare of the print.
The sleeper, with feet no less, signifies Christmas morn has arrived. When they (perhaps most of us) were little, the day arrives early and Santa’s gifts are amazingly set up and ready to check out. I remember this a part of a Hot Wheels car track, and perhaps Cam seems to have already figured its operation...
The same year, later in the day and her grandmother’s house, Allegra is set for even more presents, generously given by grandparents (they have that knack, as we see here). I think the necklace was a present found in her stocking.
Christmas is for children. They are at that great age (just turned 4 and almost 6) where there is a bit more magic to the season. See more seasonal shadows at Hey Harriet - and to all a good night!
