Shadow Puppets

Shadow Puppets

March 16, 2012. Shadow Puppets.

Have you ever had the concert seats right behind that one couple who wouldn't sit down. For hours?

Listening to Peter White play at the Winter Park Sidewalk Arts Festival this past Friday night, I found myself right behind that couple. Nice folks. Just standing in the same spot for hours, and a bit too opaque.

I started taking a few shots to entertain myself.

After shooting one or two, I realized that someone a row or two behind me was even more bored than I was and was using the gentleman's bright white chinos as his private theatre screen for a shadow puppet show.

Ironically, this happened the same day that a woman in Longwood near the Wekiva State Park was bit in the butt by a black bear.

Note: No shadow bears or white men in dockers were hurt taking this shot.

Leica X1. 24.0 mm. 1/30. f/2.8. ISO 1600. LR 2.


  1. Haaaaa.... can I pleaseeee post this to Facebook- (giving you full credit). That's crazy about the bear. I grew up in Sweetwater when it was first being developed, it was the norm to have a gator show up on your door step. Lot's of snakes, too (rattle, coral, moccasin) never any bears, though.

  2. Certainly, Wendy! Glad you like the shot.
