Am I a mere shadow of my former self…

Shadow of a man, wearing a hat with a brim, looking at his shadow on the dusty ground.

…or is this just what happens when you’re trying to use your cellphone on a sunny day and can’t really see what you’re doing because of the glare?

What did I really want to capture? This…

Woman in the foreground walking her dog. In the background, pine trees and aspens sporting gold/yellow leaves.

Note to self: Remember to take your real camera from now on.
