I didn’t see it happen.
I don’t know how.

I admit, with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I play with Annie’s phobia…

According to this post on Health Central, the fear of Garden Gnomes is called gnomophobia. I don’t know: I’d love to find something collaborating this, but the article is worth a read, just for the story of how an elderly lady uses gnomophobia to protect herself from a burglar.

I’d like to say I was at the beach, but this crab is actually one of the wonderful brass sculptures at Arbor Lodge Park.

Then I got a little silly with the BeFunky phone app. The coconut seemed so flat, I stuck in a second one (which you will actually have to do first to get this to work) used the color setting for the “sticker” to turn it all black, then knocked the opacity way down to -tada- make a shadow. In case you were wondering, this is how we did it in the old days before Photoshop had a filter for that. You can even add some further effects to blur it a bit. But I stopped there, because I realized my coconut shadow didn’t match my crab’s shadow. And it was just an exercise to see if I could, anyways.
