Saturday Shadows offering.

Not used to being up and about and posting this early on a Saturday, but as there is precipitation in abundance outside, then I had to find something to do indoors. (Mrs.Salty said I could do some hoovering or ironing, as those activities are traditionally carried out indoors, but I replied that I would hate to deprive her of one of the few pleasures she has in life.WinkTongue)

Captured in a reconstruction of a '60s kitchen at the Castle Museum, York.

Many thanks for bothering.

And I never spotted the potential of those shadows! Blush Blush Blush
I remember being preoccupied with implement envy.

I'm certain I was looking at this photo just a few moments ago.
Love the Saturday Shadows, but I certainly wouldn't wish to encounter any of those implements in the wrong hands on a dark night.
There will be a pm to follow this afternoon. Saturday morning is coffee in Newcastle.
Like the indoor shadow arrangement here.. I took a similar shot some years ago.. Alas no shadows

You must have been naughty since Mrs. S has consigned you to the kitchen but at least you sneaked a moment or two for a shot.
Nice shiny implements casting string Saturday shadows.

These are dangerous implements in my hands. I'm hopeless in the kitchen, but a whizz with an iron. Smile

Love the double shadow effect, it shows the true potential of this array of weaponry.

Try slicing onions....far easier than that a selection of Mrs S's persuaders? WinkGrinGrinGrin
Good use of light, the shadows really lift those everyday tools. Nice one .

I am in total agreement with you Malc about depriving our women of doing the jobs they love.
Whatever would happen next if we were allowed to give our assistance,I ask myself ?
They might want to ACTUALLY accompany us to the pub for Gods sake !!
Mind you,after six pints of Guinness,I do have a habit of spilling some on the floor.
Perhaps Mrs Mikbee being there with her floor mop would stop the bar staff telling me to be more careful !!
Good shot.
But what the Hell are they ?

The fork, of course--arranged to do the most damage--- Well, unless you are trying to capture rain drops, then it would be the spoon-- the one without holes!

A good find Malcolm and more than adequate shadows to keep the leaders happy.
Instruments of torture in the right hands.
Especially if you make these kinds of comments Malc. Wink

Some superb shadows Malc, these fighting irons could be extremely dangerous in the wrong hands!
