Shadow Shot Sunday



When I walked into my bedroom the other day I saw this shadow on the floor next to my bed. I went and got my camera and took the shot with Shadow Shot Sunday in mind.

Photobucket

It occured to me that if I posted only that shot above no one would know what it was a shadow of. So I went around to the other side of it and took the shot below.

Even with the shot the right way up I still wondered if anyone could tell what it was. So I decided to post the actual object below.

My bedside lamp.

Go on over to Hey Harriet and visit with Harriet, the host of this meme. You can also see the other participants in the meme and go visit with them.

Harriet also has a Shadow Gallery collage which features one photo from each participant from last Sunday.

I thought it was a lamp but that it was mounted on the wall. Nice shadow shot Mary!

Didn't that give a beautiful shadow? Both pictures were great.
First I thought it was a single light bulb hanging..Wonderful.
Happy SSS..

Cool shadow shot pic. I like how you told a story with your shadow pics for us! Have a super week.

Hey Harriet said...

That's cool! At first glance the top photo looked like an old fashioned microphone. Now you've inspired me to sing into my lamp rather than my hairbrush ;)

I didn't expect the lamp to look like that, even after looking at the second photo. I thought it would be one of those that is screwed to the wall.

Very cool shadow.

Yes sometimes you don't have to travel far at all to find the perfect shadow!!

What a soft, pretty shadow! Love the texture of the rug as the background!

Pretty lamp, and a beautiful shadow. The glass gives it a luminous quality.

Really great, I got it in the second frame. Next time I'll stand on my head. ;~)
