Wood and Glass 6


The bird sculpture on the right is carved from bull horn. An old friend brought it back for us in the ’70s from the Kingdom of Swaziland (or kaNgwane).

  1. This is gorgeous – I love the way you show such beauty in everyday things.

      That is very kind- thank you:) As it happens the alignment of the house and the large windows both help considerably. They produce a lot of different natural light and shadow effects as the day goes on. I made it a rule for this blog not to move or tidy up anything before shooting, so the alignment has made a big difference to what is possible.

    Those shadows are terrific. Beautiful presentation – and I love that it is black and white. I’m free to just see form and shape.

      Pleased you liked it 🙂
      One of the good things about doing this blog is that (as my wife has gently pointed out) it is getting me to look carefully at things we have had for years!

  4. I really like this dramatic shadow. You have done a wonderful image of light and shadow effect.

    Yes it is amazing how much difference a particular angle can make to a shadow! Here the wall was parallel to the piano the objects are on, but the door happened to be partly open, changing the angle and width of part of the shadow. Also the sunlight was coming in from slightly above, which shifted the shadow away from a horizontal angle.
