August 8th, 2010


  1. Sera says:

    I really like this one! And I like that I’m first!

  2. hks says:

    I guess you could also title it ” I’mJustPlowin’ “

  3. deb says:

    Such beautiful golden light! You look marvelous, darlin’!

  4. Candice In Alabama says:

    Too funny, how many of us have seen ourselves in this type of silhouette – without a camera! :)

  5. If you happen to see in the clouds letters the shape of “G” and “P”…it doesn’t mean “Go Preach”…it means “Go Plow”…lots of people have made that mistake…in your case, Matt…it means “Go Push”…(ahh, the Mattmobile, that is)…(I just try to be of help)…I know…try not to help so much…whimper, whimper…

    • Candice In Alabama says:

      Does anybody know how much a Mattmobile costs? I’ve been thinking about emailing that company.

  6. katzien in austin says:

    I love that it looks like you’re actually plowing a row in the field, how funny! Now you’re a “virtual” farmer!

  7. deanna valenti meyer says:

    I like this picture for so many reasons…

  8. Lisa in Goldsboro NC says:

    Just a man and his shadow. It makes me wonder what Matt has learned about who he is on the inside. You are all alone out there with nothing but your own thoughts. Deep:)

    • Jeff says:

      ” Me and My shadow……” humm along now folks….

      • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

        Ah, darn it Jeff you had to go and beat me to it! I just couldn’t stay awake any more last night to keep commenting.

        So now I’ll just hum along with you…Me and my shadow, strolling down the avenue, tappity tap, tappity tap(sound affects)….

  9. Barbara says:

    This one could be dedicated to your mother on her birthday, today~

    • Don in Tennessee says:

      Yes- Happy birthday to Mom. You have raised a wonderful son! I am sure you and Dad are proud of your Matt. Did you think he would become a HOBO after graduating from college? I will bet his college transcript shows he took HOBO 101, 102 and 103. How else would he have learned to make a trek by foot across this great land at this pace?

      Hope you have many more birthdays!!!

    • MN Roxanne says:

      Happy Birthday Matt’s Mom…. thanks for sharing him this summer….

      • Jeff says:

        Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you …happy birthday Matt’s mommmmmmmmm
        Happy Birthday to you…….

      Happy birthday, Mom!

  10. Barb C. says:

    Is today Matt’s Mom birthday? If it is a big “Happy Birthday” from the hobo nation/planet . Also thank you for giving us your son Matthew for the summer.It has been our privilege to get to know him and follow him on his journey.

  11. Alan S. says:

    Hail fellow traveler. I have a similar picture:

  12. Don in Tennessee says:

    Who is the shady charater following you. You need to get the plunger handle out and wallop him. This is to much for you to have to carry.

    Matt you could join this group – I think they are a little shady, I mean shadowy!!v=RPERVDVHAr4&feature=related

    • Lori from Calif. says:

      I love Pilobolous – thanks Don for sharing! They are really an incredible dance group and I am fortunate that I have seen them in person a couple of times – I really recommend them.

    • Barb V from Michigan says:

      Wow, Don! That was amazing. I had never heard of this group before. Now I’m going to have to look for them to come to Michigan. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Jeff says:

    oh…and Matt…by the way a boy named Peter Pan wants a word with you – something about proper care of your shadow ??

  14. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    The Shadow knows..wha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! so many puns to be made on this pic. Lookin’ tall there Matt.

  15. Barb V from Michigan says:

    One of my favorites so far! So cool! I did the same thing once with my own shadow making a peace sign and then an Okay sign.
