Come, Prometheus,
it is time to light the lamp—
shadows have gathered.

  1. Lovely shadow shot and lovely words, as always!

    Have a great weekend and holiday season!


  2. I love those old lamps and their stylish shades. The shadow resulting from this old lamp is a shadow of perhaps a UFO, or something floating without the aid of strings or wire. A great capture!

  3. There is something so comforting about lamp lighting time. Love your picture – thanks for visiting. Enjoy the holiday. x

  4. Lots of shadows here, not only do we see the shadow of the lamp and blinds on the wall but a shadow from ouside on the lamp shade. All of it has a warm glow. Great capture.

  5. Prometheus? No,
    That would be Diogenes.
    Why is his lamp dark?

    Jzb the honest trombonist

  6. I really like the shadow under the lampshade shadow – what is it?

  7. There is no old Greek
    In sight. Who will light the lamp?
    Could be D or P.

    JzB the either way it’s better than cursing the darkness trombonist

  8. A fine lamp it is
    And a fine fine shadow shot
    Thanks for all the fun

  9. Have a great ShadowShotSunday
    Happy holidays!


  10. Standing tall and brave
    The sentry keeps watch; stands guard,
    As the light slips by.

  11. Taken at the perfect time of the day – beautiful shot.

  12. Looks like a peaceful late afternoon shadow, time to relax in the easy chair and take a picture…have a wonderful holiday!

  13. Lovely colours in this photo, the shadow is beautiful too

  14. I like the way that the lamp is already in shadow, and casting a shadow!

  15. I see so many shadows here ~ wonderful late afternoon capture.
