Travel Theme: Short

Over at her blog, “Where’s my Backpack?”, Ailsa has chosen Short as the Travel Theme for this week…

I wanted to think beyond short animals etc etc, but couldn’t resist posting an image of my friend’s dog running through wild flowers and long grass, emphasising his shortness.. see for yourself:


Short legs!

I then thought of shadows, and searched for an image to demonstrate that when the sun is high in the sky around midday, the shadows are very short:

Short shadows

Short shadows

I didn’t envy this cyclist, in the heat of the Cuban sun around noon.


  1. a short legged dog is a thing to behold. Like the shadow idea – high noon.

  2. Loved the dog in the grass LOL!

  3. a difficult challenge this week – I like your thinking on the short shadows! Damn missed that!

    • Well, I like to think around the subject! Trouble was, I couldn’t find a good image but at least the one I used illustrated the point…. 🙂

  4. A cute dog and a bronzed youth! The stuff of dreams, Sue 🙂

    Great idea of the shadows 🙂 Love the short legs 🙂

  6. nice pictures of shadows. love the dog through the wild flowers!

  7. The first shot of the dog is beautiful, The second makes even me, in sweltering Chennai, feel hot!!

    • Thanks Madhu… I just couldn’t resist the shot of the dog, just one of those lucky things that happens in front of you! As for the other one, a shot taken some years ago with a very basic point and shoot, but it illustrated the point about midday shadows!
