Friendly Friday Challenge – Shadows

Sandy’s prompt for Friendly Friday reminded me of a visit to the Skansen Museum in Stockholm,where I felt the presence of old world shadows.

In the midst of a Swedish winter, the shadowy silhouette of the bell tower in Stockholm’s Skansen Museum was an imposing and slightly daunting sight set against the crepuscular morning light.

Swedish farm houses were dark and the winters bitterly cold. Many families lived in the same house for generations and the darkest corners of the room echoed with imagined shadows of the past.

Taking refuge inside, farmers and their labourers would enjoy consuming a hearty meal, particularly at Christmas.

For those who have Swedish heritage, visiting Skansen is a way to bring history alive and feel more of a connection with the past.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shadows

Cee has some wonderful shadows in her challenge this week. Shadows can be fun, especially when we are children, shadow puppets on the wall at night.

I had a little trouble finding appropriate photos, for this challenge, so I created these:

Or is you are old enough to remember ‘ET’:

I  added this one because the shadows were very ‘Lord of the Rings’ -ish

The following are as a result of tutelage and inspiration from M.R. on my other post who suggested having a secondary object in shot for size referencing:
