Now, that is a clever device . . . I'd expect to find a version in Tiger.

Fabulous shadows they really are the subject of the picture here.
More questions for you:
where did you find the characters/fonts for your titles?
How do you manage to type them out on a normal keyboard?

@Curly: Go into word(97/2001/2003 whatever) Insert-symbol(the standard font is fine) , more symbols, pick one,insert, copy from word, paste into the title field. Now, some of the characters don't paste properly-which gives you the ability to have nothing in the title http://celliottuk.aminus3.com/image/2013-10-13.html - which can also be useful
The white frame at top left could have been removed to get a stronger image!

Shadows on the walls bring back some memories of old...or...just a game to play when you feel nostalgic all day!
Just lovely! Like being surrounded by dancing people :)

I need one of those for my daughter. Dancing is all she thinks about at the moment.

Now why the symbol? Whatever the shot is nice love the shadows on the wall; what were/are these little jewels called?

There must be a name for this wonderful 'shadow machine' ... your image is mesmerizing!
25 Oct 2013 2:10pm
A different and creative interior shot. Neat one for sure!

Nice shadows, are they coming from the glass or did you add them?

@The Mouse: Right in the middle of the projector is a 60 watt candle bulb. Suspended above it is a large, light metal fan with metal cut-out figures of dancers which surround the bulb. As the bulb gets hot, the rising air drives the fan round, which in turn drives the metal figures round, forming the moving shadows you see here
Unique capture of these enormous shadows generated from such a small item!!

I really like it! Since my other hobby is dancing (I lead a group of senior dance) I am very interested in this "shadow thing"! Is there somewhere this device available for purchase?
25 Oct 2013 7:52pm
Please excuse now I've looked at your previous photos and've noticed that you've photographed museum pieces - these are of course not to buy - especially not for me!

@Loner: Well...maybe you can get a modern day equivalent. One of our christmas decoration is a very cheap device that looks like this....Imagine 4 candles in a tray, Above them is a fan with 4 metal cherubims hanging down from the fan. As the air gets hot, it turns the fan, which makes the cherubims move creating shadows. It would be too difficult to re-cut the cherubims into dancers . It's kind of a version of this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gold-4pc-Candle-Cherub-Chime-Christmas-Decoration-/141096338100
This is superb!

Can you guess what we're having for supper tonight? May I use a small bit of your image here alongside my pot of soup?
25 Oct 2013 10:26pm
@Judy aka L@dybug: Enjoy¬, I hope it was as delicious as ours was. Do tell!
Fantastic image! I love the shadows! Gorgeous light and color.
25 Oct 2013 11:45pm
I like the catch here - the leaping really brings a bit of joyful excitement to this already wonderful piece, sir..Really nice work :-)
25 Oct 2013 11:52pm
