Taken in Tony's Office, with the curtains open, and with the street light casting shadows from the net curtains across the furniture - I particularly like the way that the shadows lengthen as the surfaces change 90 degrees on the drawers and filing cabinet. The light on the books coming from the hallway gave me a problem as it was so bright compared with the darkness of the room, I probably should have increased the ISO but having taken endless shots this seemed the best.
Thanks for looking
Helen

Dark and mysterious, Helen. The darkness hides any distracting detail.
