Shadow Shot Sunday

Winged Figure by Barbara Hepworth
We went into town yesterday as I wanted to visit Anthropologie which has recently opened here. I have seen lots of pictures online and wanted to see it for myself. It is a very interesting and beautiful shop. After that we went to John Lewis for tea. When we came out it was dark and the Barbara Hepworth sculpture on the side of the shop was looking beautiful and shadowy! It is called 'Winged Figure' and was commissioned in 1961 for the store opening. It makes me think of an Angel. Visit here for more information.


I have tried uploading my photo via flickr today after reading simple and memorable instructions yesterday. But I don't know how to centre it!
Visit Hey Harriet for more shadows from around the world!

Your lucky to have Anthropologie around you now.

This shot is perfect. The texture of colours and the design. Simply and yet elegant, indeed.

Have a blissful day!

It's funny you should mention Anthropolgie because their website reminded me of the website for Le Chein Et Moi - ashop in Nottingham.

And when I saw the website I immediately thought of you!

What a beautiful capture of light and shadow, the sculpture is magnificent!

Lovely shadow shot Sarah! It really does resemble a bird... and I love the contrast of materials.

I'm such a fan of Anthropologie also, at regular prices they're too much for me, but they have the most amazing sales sometimes... especially after Christmas!

The figure with wings—
do you hear it as it sings
from out the shadows?

This is a gorgeous shadow shot. Love the sculpture! I've never uploaded pics to my blog via Flickr so I'm clueless I'm afraid!
