Shadow Shot Sunday

This shadow shot is of Helen McCookerybook and Paul Davey. We went to see Helen play on Saturday. She has a new album out with Martin Stephenson called Hamilton Square and this was the launch. It was great! This is Helen and Martin and you can just about make out Jim the Fiddle on the right. I was trying to unobtrusively take photos not using the flash.This is Daisy who was on the door. She was really lovely and I loved her hat. She should come to the Mad Hatter's party next week! Not all the shots are shadow shots. This is more a blurry shot but I like it. This is the Edgeware Road by night from a cab.
I am not sure what this is but there is a tiny shadow that looks like a person in the middle. For more shadows go here.
These murals are near the pub. They are mosaics.
You have to look hard for the shadow here but I like the P. I like taking photos at night as I never know what I will get.

A fun set of photos! I can't say that I've ever heard Helen McCookerybook but I do love the name!!! I will keep an ear out for her music. Glad you enjoyed the gig. Nothing beats seeing bands play live. So much more enjoyable than listening to a CD :D

Musical shadows—
listen! They sing from the heart
of Hamilton Square.

Fun series of photos. Taking indoor shots w/o a flash is always challenging. I played at Small Reflections this week.
Hugs and blessings,

I love that you've gone for nightime shadows - more subtle! And I also love the Edgeware Road blur. I take a lot of blurry shots - I like how things become more abstract that way...

Sounds like a nice night. The name is really cool. It sounds like a name that should be a character in a book.

Super fun, Sarah...these are really great! Music live is such a richer experience in many ways, don't you think? Glad you had a good time. Happy Days :o)

First of all, what Mad Hatter's Party? Secondly, if you look here (http://hyggedigter.blogspot.com/2009/04/two-for-show.html), you'll see some similarities between Helen's and Martin's venue and one here in my hometown.
(I checked out the Google maps, by the way and saw the area, BUT if you're talking cheapskates, they haven't got any in my area at all!)
