I saw the shadow one Saturday, made a note of the time and went back the next week and photographed it.

The wall is no longer there and, despite rumours to the contary, I did not arrange for it to be demolished so that no one else could take the picture.

Just wonderful observation, and proof that one should never be without a camera.

Very good observation. The shadow doesn't look as sinister as the object that casts it.

Well I wouldn't have blamed you if you had! Lovely shot and I admire your persistence in going back a week later.
