Pendulum shadows

Where we live there are many antique stores selling all kinds of antiques. Walking around I noted this antique shop window where they sell parts of antique clocks. The different shadows of these pendulums for antique clocks caught my eye. Some pendulums are very simple, whereas others have delicate angel shapes on the pendulum self and even other pendulums have very decorative rods. The shadows show this very well.

Enjoy your Sunday! Over here in Holland we are enjoying a heat wave and again near tropic temperatures making you sweat without doing a thing! Orange is the colour and everybody is looking forward to this evening: the final match of the world cup 2010: Spain - Holland!

Fantastic shadow shots! They're so crisp and clear and they do indeed look as though they could make music! In fact, that was my first thought! Hope you have a wonderful week coming up!

The shadows are artistic and lovely. I see stringed instruments, such as a harp. I had not considered a pendulum to be so ornate and artistic. Nice!

I thought it was generally cooler in Europe, but keep cool.

Go Holland!
