The Light of Winter, day 8

It could not have been easier for me to decide which photo I wanted to use for today's Sunlight and Shadow prompt. Remember the Grand Tour we took two years ago down in LaLaLand? We stopped at Travel Town, a train museum, because The Boy was still heavily into Thomas the Tank Engine.
Here he and his oldest cousin (the taller shadow) are jumping on a metal plate between sections of train track. Mid-December, but of course in LA the sunlight is still bright and the shadows are defined.

It's good to know the winter solstice means the days are about to get longer. But it takes a while to notice here in Extra-Blue State, since the first three or four months of those longer days will be gray.

If you're enjoying these photo prompts (when I can get off my tuchis to post them), you can see mine here, and those of the other participants at LK Ludwig's blog The Poetic Eye. Say hi when you visit! Especially when you follow me on Google. Click on the widget at the right side of the page.
