Our outside light. Funny one this as (obviously) I see it quite a lot, and often think that the shadow pattern would make a nice shot. Took me about 5 years to get round to trying it out! Deceptively difficult to get the angle right to mask the bulb and allow a single exposure without blowing the highlights.

Comments and critique welcome.

Thanks for looking!

You have made a good job of photographing the lamp and retaining the white balance. The roughcast wall with shadows also gives an other interest to the final result.
