Talking 'bout Books & Shadow Shot Sunday #109

Currently reading London by Mrs Robert Henry, first printed in 1948. She walks around the Piccadilly Circus area of London and speaks of the history plus the aftermath of WW2. Very interesting to me as she mentions quite a few places where my ancestors lived. Just started reading the family way by Tony Parsons novel about 3 sisters.

Why would anyone hang these 'Mathmaster' sheets of plastic out to air? Because when I got them from the op shop they had the aroma of vomit!!! Much better for a scrub with lemon, vinegar and washing up liquid. They stayed outside for a couple of weeks.

Shadow Shot Sunday - to join in or see other shadow shots go to Hey Harriet.

They make for very cool shadows. And I love the row of pegs

Some new things really smell vile, don't they? I'm glad the treatment worked!
Thank you for the information on the Canary Wharf sculpture - I Googled but got absolutely nowhere;-/

Created a great shadow shot by hanging them for sure! I'm sure some days in the sun will take the odor out of them.
I see the row of clothespins, (nana-ang-poppaphil called them "pegs"). Interesting drying rack. Is it for socks?

Okay, the OTHER reason would be because they create such wonderful shadows??? :=}

Maths used to make me sick too!
They do make very pretty shadows!

crisscrossing shadows
somewhere a sliver of light
cries to be set free
