Looking for inspiration sometimes leads to setting up a scene for yourself. I found myself in the hot, hot, days of July looking for something suitable to photograph. I often pass a stretch of Rt. 50 going through Trappe, MD, and love the way the way the light plays around the stand of trees in one area. I stopped there and took several photos of the shadows with mixed results. While walking around, however, I found a child’s shoe and thought this would make a poignant photo. Still, the scene needed something more, since the shoe was so small and not very colorful. The next day I went back to the same location with a dear Raggedy Ann. Although this was not mine from childhood, I did have one then which was never very far from my little hands. THIS meant something to me. So here is the result. Does it hit a chord in your heart as well?
