Photo Challenge: Shadow

This week, grab your camera and capture a shadow.

I clicked this photo while I was just clicking random pictures in the parking lot of the Ajanta Caves near Aurangabad, MH, India. I was clicking photos of trees, cars, hawkers when I saw my own shadow. So, here is it.

Our Fitbit was running and Netflix were streaming,

young children everywhere were pleasantly dreaming

of toys and gifts that would become a new meme,
