Shadow Shot Sunday #165

This little fella has been around for as long as I can remember! He was always around at home when I was growing up, and I inherited him about a year ago. He has a friend (a fish; that's his shadow you can see at the bottom left of the photo), and they sit on the window sill at the bottom of the stairs. So, when the sun shines this is what happens..........

This is a Shadow Shot Sunday post


  1. What a great shadow shot for the day, Martin! I love little guys like this and the sun does work its own magic! Hope you're enjoying your weekend!!


  2. When the sun shines, the fire within him blazes!


    Imagine a shadow could talk
    In whisper or rumble or squawk;
    Just what would it say
    To make you go, “Hey!
    You’re just a chip off the old block!”?

    Shadows abound here and here

  3. Now, that's a nice little thing to have on any window sill. Great that it's been in your life so long, too.

  4. What a creative the golden glow the shadow makes. I love these kinds of little 'inherited' trinkets. They bring back fond memories of growing up, don't they?

    My shadow this week is of a horn cleat [what you use to tie up a boat at the dock]


    Hope your weekend has treated you well.

  5. That's really sweet! Love the sunny glow! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  6. Lovely it Lalique? Please can I see the fish too? ( I have a small clear glass bird with a textured tail and if the sun shines on the tail it breaks up beautifully coming through the body of the bird)

  7. Sylvia K - Thank you, glad you enjoyed it. I've left it on the window sill just to catch the sun!

    Magical Mystical Teacher - Exactly. Nice poem, thank you.

    Martin H. - It seems obvious to put it where it catches the light. But, thinking about it, I can't remember where it used to be!

    HOOTIN' ANNI - Glad you liked it, the colour makes a difference to it, I think. Much enjoyed your picture as well.

    Tatjana Parkacheva - Thank you.

    Hey Harriet - Glad you liked it, I took this with Shadow Shot Sunday in mind.

    Frances - No, it's not Lalique. There's a mark on the base of the fish to show where a sticker once was, but other than that, there's nothing. Click on the link to see the fish!

    Thank you all for visiting...

  8. Beautiful shadowy photo!

    My shadows, hope you can visit and see. Have a great week ahead!

  9. try looking up Sabino glass to see if these look like what you have. Very cool shot!

  10. chubskulit - Thank you, enjoyed your photos as well.

    bad penny - Thank you, I just enjoyed the colours in it.

    savethephotos - Thank you, I googled Sabino glass, and you're absolutely right! Of course, then my wife pointed out that it's signed at the bottom! All these years, and I'd never seen that before... DOH!!!!!

  11. Like the golden glow the shadows. I have very good collection of these kinds of little 'inherited' trinkets. Your shared photograph is awesome.
