For Tracy’s always fun Shadow Shot Sunday, I look again to daughter Allegra for a unique shadow. And she provided same.
Allegra was returning with mom Patti from their school trip to Paris in her Junior year of high school. The plane, a 777 from London, United Airlines 905, was on approach to New York. In this view, they were now in a racetrack shaped holding pattern over the east coast of Connecticut near Groton. The air traffic around JFK airport meant that the trail of airplanes behind the destination all had to slow down for landing in sequence. Allegra was impressed with the sight of the CT coast, and fired away. The shadows here are quite subtle – the broken layer of clouds below the aircraft leaves shadows on the shoreline below. Light and barely perceptible.
As son Cameron and myself held down the fort, you always hope for a smooth trip to and from their European travels. And hope they took lots of pictures – we are fortunate they captured this aerial shadow too!
