This weeks phrase: We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows.” –  E.M Forster, A Room with a View.

The museum will be closing in fifteen minutes. Ella couldn’t believe she had been there for almost eight hours. There was so much more to see. She stood looking at a painting when a guard approached her.

He said nothing but pointed to the exit. As she was on the way out, something caught her attention. She stopped and stared. A barefoot man stood beside a statue, arm around it holding a museum map, smiling.

“Quick, get my picture.”

She looked around. “Who me?”

“Yes, you.”

Ella took the photo with both phones. This will make a great blog post.
