Ty Ranny Soarus

Meet Mr. Ty Ranny Soarus.

This image wasn't even a contender for today's shadow post. Mostly because I had already done several shadow posts from this expedition to Chaco Canyon in March. I was 'cruising' through my shadow image files looking for something that would fit in with what I was going to write about. Which was something on the topic of "worry". There was something about this shadow that made me scroll back to the image. Which is what made me take the picture in the first place. The fact that the shape of the shadow looked like something. OK, I still hadn't figured out what that 'something' was yet because I got sidetracked with the realization that the very shape of that shadow was echoed in the rock wall (if you want to see a larger image of this, just click on the image). Cool.

At first, the shape made me think of a camel. Then, I realized that it really was the profile of a Tyrannosaurus Rex! Waaaay cool.

Which got me thinking about the value in looking at something long enough to go beyond your initial impression. I think it takes an open mind to be able to look at the same thing in different ways and leaving judgment out of the equation. But, when you keep yourself open in this manner, it does allow you to see more!

So much for that post that I was going to do about 'worry'! Maybe some other time...

I like it...no worries...but perhaps it's a remnant from a creature's stroll in a different time frame...ever stalking for lunch! Ahhh...the ever-wandering imagination, keeps our minds fresh and alive!

That is a very cool shadow shot! Of course....we could worry that there wouldn't be shadow shots....that would cause a fright I'm sure!
