Shadow Shot Sunday: The Light-stick Vendor

A photograph from the switching on the Christmas lights outside the Town Hall.

The lady was selling "bubble-guns" and these "light-sticks" or whatever they are called. The light from her wares were casting her shadow in one direction and the shadow of her barrow in another.

For more shadows visit Hey Harriet.


  1. Nighttime shadows are always hard for me to capture, but you've done a great job!


    Shadows above me, shadows below,
    Shadows beside me, wherever I go;

    Shadows each morning, shadows at night—
    Shadows, O shadows, you’re my delight!

    Shadows here and shadows there

  2. Interesting, I don't think I would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned the different directions of the shadows.

  3. The nighttime shadows are neat, the glow stick purveyor looking happy that she is being recognized by the photo artist. Were I there, I would be drawn even more to the spud vendor, thinking of an order of proper UK chips (not the 'fries' we get over here). There seems to be plenty of action on this night, as the vendors are vending to...someone. Great captures!

  4. I like all the colours and different elements in this picture, and the way the light stick lady looks a little shy.

  5. What a cool shot. Love the lady and her light stand, but what really caught my eye was the Spud and Grill Company. Sounds pretty good to me. This shot is so full of color and shadows even though it is nighttime. A fun capture. genie

    Where is my shadow,
    I cannot find her anywhere,
    I'm so lonely without her here.

    If the lighting's right,
    and I am out in the yard,
    I bet I'll see her again.

    That will make me smile,
    My loneliness will end
    I'll be with my friend.

  6. great photo.. i like the light-sticks during Christmas at New Year :)

  7. Beautiful shot, Gerald. I love available light night shots :)
    The "Spud & Grill" is eye-catching, too!
