Shadow Shot Sunday - Sightseeing luck

Battersea Power Station, London, April 2005. Photo by Allegra
Album cover
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, and we look for shadowy poses, sometimes in many different and perhaps odd places. This picture was taken by daughter Allegra in London on an 11th grade school trip to London in 2005. It is the Battersea Power Station made famous in the 1977 album by Pink Floyd, Animals. This might not mean much to many, but way back then she loved the Pink Floyd so much that her e-mail address was lessthanfloyd@...

With her okay, the shadowy power station is my submittal to SSS2. The picture was taken through the window on a bus on the way to Heathrow on the last day as Patti wrote. How could our daughter know that later on this would be a great shadowy post?

And it is indeed a great shadowy post!! I love it! Always amazes me where you can find them -- even when you're not looking! Hope you and Patti are having a good weekend!!

Quite a grand building! Unexpected for a power station! The chimneys almost seem out of place! Fascinating photo!

Okay. The bus window explains the shadowy ghost image in the shot. It's an iconic image.

Awesome! It could pass for a building on an alien planet, couldn't it.
