great idea to use a flashlight for very cool shadows!

Really terrific shot and clever use of the flashlight! Great idea, indeed! I'm going to have to try that one!

Hey Harriet said...

A great shadow shot and a great TtV! Isn't TtV-ing fun? I think the technique really lends itself well to shooting toys. Which then gives us a good excuse to get the toys out and have a play ;D

Do I correctly remember a Chanticleer from Watership Down? Your photo brought it to mind...

Chanticleer crowing,
boasting and besting every
encroaching shadow…

Thanks to all. I found this little rooster in a box of my old toys my mother saved. As to Michael's question, I don't know if Chanticleer appeared in Watership Down, but he has been a character in ancient fable, as well as in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and (as Chauntecleer) in Walter Wangerin Jr's The Book of the Dun Cow.

I love it - it looks like he's on stage, belting one out for the audience!
