Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow
When I was young, I never gave the intense Hawaiian sunshine a moment’s thought. It was sunny and I was outdoors–it was as simple as that. I do not recall ever having to root out the coolness of the shade.
Today, I still cannot get enough sunshine. Except now I can barely withstand the brightness and intense heat without having to be in the safety of the shade. I do enjoy, however, watching the sun-worshipers and the children entertaining the sun. There is something very comforting about the sunshine.
As the Maori’s say: Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
