Shadows on the Wall by LouJay

Say it all
Working on my bedroom….

Fujifilm Finepix S1500
Auto setting

Western Australia

I like to play. I find joy in small things and moments where the edge between conscious looking and subconscious seeing becomes soft enough for me to be there for a moment.

    Excellent … looks more like some kind of painting.

  • Yes, I can see a canvas-y sort of effect now you mention it! Thank you!

    Let me see…..ironing board, squeezy bottle, dustpan and brush….and an echidna?? Different shot!

  • Heh heh! Spray bottle yes! Dustpan and brush Yes! But actually builders/plastering tools – the ‘echidna is a pair of rubber gloves! the ’ironing board’ is a pair of beefmasters to stand on! Cheers!

    well done, lou! hope you got it into the challenge in time! I’ve been meaning to do something but now it’s too late… lol!

  • Hey thank you Nadine! This isn’t actually a wash day one! – building tools instead! I just love late afternoon light on my rendered walls!

    lol! I thought it was an ironing board with a spray bottle and some sort of flat iron! No wonder I didn’t see it in the challenge.

  • Would have made a great bubble jeopardy puzzle, now I see I tricked you all accidentally! Except that one very clever Naia ….she guesses everything straight off!! ( and knows what we’ve been up to as well here!)

    (umm, actually the hot water bottle really had me questioning, I mean, hottest summer ever and all, thought I was dreaming…)
    missed the challenge (had some plans but never materialised ha ha)
    love these mysterious shadows; there is almost a sci fi mechanoid thing happening, walking, stalking, menacing…

  • That hot water bottle turned up in the op shop – and was way too cute to let go! Dunno about using it – maybe first up with extreme care. Quite old I think!

    Mmm – yes menacing, stalking…I like that! shadowing That is a truly cool name!

    apparently hot water bottles store best if they have some water (and not air) inside them when not in use.
    could try it out with cold first just in case?
