Casting a Shadow

I started to write a deep philosophical entry about the shadows we cast in our lives.  But what this photo really demands is a reflection on great fun.  All of us have unique experiences in life, things that few others get to experience.  For me, one of the highlights was riding on a Zeppelin back in the summer of 2015.  Little more than a dozen people at a time, perhaps 300 people a day get to experience watching the Zeppelin they are riding in cast a shadow on the ground, a unique shape.  

When we were planning the trip to Germany Jay emailed me two flightseeing websites. The one he was sure I would choose was a ride in a 1930's vintage airliner, the other was the Zeppelin.  I was instantly drawn to the Zeppelin, as long as I could afford it, I really didn't care what it cost, a part of the trip was planned around it. 

I am so glad I did this, the Zeppelin cast its shadow on the ground and onto a part of my life's adventure.  

What experience casts a positive shadow on your life?
