Shadow Shot Sunday

This time I didn't have to go very far
for a cool shadow—I found this one
right in my own living room.

[To see more Sunday shadows, go here.]


  1. The angle of the sun on the wall made me think of Edward Hopper's “Morning Sun” (1952) but there is a lot more going on in yours. A lot more dynamics of light. Brilliant, in all senses of the word.

    Do you know the Japanese song “Red Dragonfly”—Akatonbo 赤とんぼ? Here is a piano “jazz” arrangement。

    This is one of the songs played over certain areas at the end of the day like here (the same as above basically).

  2. Simply beautiful. And I love the drawings/paintings that are hanging on your wall, very pretty.
    Have a wonderful day.

  3. This is a perfect photo. You could not have planned it any better.

  4. Great shadow shot. Love when they just appear. Like the wall hangings too!

  5. TG -- I'd never heard Akatonbo before—beautiful, and the first few notes make me think of one of my fave songs, Oh Shenandoah.

  6. James Galway does both but perhaps not in the same place.

    Oh Shenandoah is moving. I liked your choice. A lot of nice imagery (the Indian chiefs above Mount Rushmore, for example).

    Another pair that seems to (what do I know?) begin similarly are The Shadow of Your Smile and Lullaby of Ikutsuki.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
