Featured Photo Friday

There’s a new park in my neighborhood. I took my children last night. As the sun sank lower, my shadow grew longer.

Since my camera was locked in my car trunk, I snapped this featured photo with my phone.


My son sat contentedly in the crook of my arm, while my daughter ran through the water and spun on the pirate-ship shaped carousel. We’ll be visiting again this weekend.

I’m still collecting feedback on my book trailer! I’ve had some really good suggestions, and many kind compliments. The question: What makes an effective book trailer?

Do you have any fun parks near you? When you look at your shadow, do you feel like you don’t measure up? What did you think of the trailer?

  1. Whoa… you’re so tall! Awesome shot.

    • I hear some guys dig long legs. 🙂 Mine might be a bit extreme.

  2. Love the photo! I’ll see if I can share your trailer on my blog or at least link to it.

  3. Okay, it’s up now and appears to be working. Yay!

  4. The shadow as metaphor is always intriguing–in words and in pictures. I enjoyed yours of your son in your arms. Lovely.

  5. I love the way shadows do that. SUCH a cool effect. Great picture!

  6. Holy cow – you’re like a giant Super Woman! Sorry, but my download capacity doesn’t allow for videos – but I’m sure your trailer’s great! 🙂

  7. Talk about casting a long shadow! 😉
    Loved the trailer, Loni! Good luck with the book.

  8. Wow but you have long legs… 🙂

    I hope you share your feedback with what people find they like in book trailers. I’m not sure how I feel about them in a general sense. There is some kind of disconnect in my brain between video and book.

  9. Very cool photo. The trailer looks great! I liked it better without the narration — maybe add some epic music instead?

  10. Mmm… text-centric trailers are my favorite! 🙂

  11. Awesome picture! The trailer was a lot of fun and quirky. That last bit really hooked me.

  12. I’ve been so bad about visiting anybody lately, Loni, but I always enjoy your photos! You look like the jolly green giant commercials in this. 🙂

  13. I’ll comment when I stop laughing at Carrie Butler’s comment. 😛

    That’s such a cool picture!

    Found Comba park! Got there too late for shadows, but got wet!
