HNT - Shadow Puppets

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I confess ... I stole was inspired by this idea. Last week, someone (and I'll be damned if I can remember who) did a shadow HNT. It was a wonderful shot of her head - her hair flowing - playing in the shadows (If you are reading this, please let me know it was you and I'll give proper linkage!). It made me think of playing with shadows as a child - knowing that when I had no control over the "monsters" I heard in the night, I did have control over the "monsters" that projected on my walls.

*EDIT* WooHoo! Thank you to all who left suggestions as to who I thieved from last week. It was Jennybean that was the inspiration, but Elle did a wonderful shadowy HNT as well.

Now? I am still fascinated by the natural distortion of light playing with shadows, and I still remember how to make that little dog shadow!

... and how to make grown-up shadows too! *CLICK*

Grown up shadow puppets are the best! I only wish there were more pics in this series!

Was it Elle? At Kink Unleashed??? She did a shadow one last wk I believe.

Anyways. YOUR shadow effect in that click thru is *incredible*. Turned out very well! You rock! Hehe!

This is a wonderful and playful idea. I love your shadow puppets. :)

Sometimes when I'm laying in bed and can't sleep, I reach over and light one of the candles by my bed and make shadow puppets on the wall until I'm tired. Or I just wave my hand/s around in weird patterns and watch the shadows dance. Weird perhaps but fun and it helps relax my mind.

Both pictures rock! Happy HNT!

Is that a man with a hat peering over a hill with the picture taken sideways? ;) I'm guilty of creating shadow puppets too. HHNT!

I was about ready to sheepishly raise my hand as the one who did it last week, but I see I have been outted several times...

Wonderful job.. steal anytime you want to!

Lu' said...

Hmm, I like the idea but would have prefered the shadow softer some how, less like a silhouette.

What a great idea and so beautifully executed.

The problem with shadow puppets is you can't grope... err, touch them.

Maeve said...

I had imagine something else! A little more cocky!

That's just awesome! I used shadow puppets to get my own room when my parents tried to have my sister and I share a room...it worked, I scared my sister and she moved out :)
