Balham shadows

By mrswoolybill
A light fitting in an alcove, at Tagine, a Moroccan restaurant in Balham. I wonder if it will still be there when we next travel south?
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Very nice, Moira. I've recently photographed something similar that may get an upload at some time.

Precisely. This was behind my right shoulder, and too good to ignore.
Thanks folks. Colour will follow some time.

Fascinating, rather raspberryish.
Did dancing shadows sprinkle your couscous?

A raspberry, indeed. Perhaps once belonged to the Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town?

I think it's meant to be a bunch of grapes. This is a bring-your-own-booze establishment (with no corkage charge!), so maybe a subtle invitation.

Every March, for our daughter's birthday. As regular as the swallows.

Not what I thought it was from the thumbnail.

The view point really does give the desired effect here, Moira.

And who know's what will remain? I like to think that something good will replace what has been lost.

Balham. Reminded of Peter Sellers whimsy back in early '60s. Think I'm showing my age.

Painting with light, a wonderful example and b&w does it for me.

A berry lovely capture, Moira, even if a glass berry! A super capture, like how the light patterns radiate out - it pays to look up! 😀👍
Have a good Easter and stay safe,
Trev 😀

Superb Moira! I can hear Peter Sellers portentously intoning at the beginning of his mock travelogue:
"Bal-ham, gateway to the south ... " A wonderful image!

Back again... Thanks to Richard for the UA, to Graham for the link (a very long time since I heard that...)
On my porch I carve the middle holes of toothbrush holders. It is exciting work and my forefathers have been engaged in this since 1957. The middle hole is put in manually or in other words once a year....
The little ones sit round a trim nursemaid and listen spellbound and enchanted while she reads them a story. 'With one bound he was by her side. Nora felt his hot breath on her...'
