Flying saucer

This vintage light has always reminded me of a flying saucer. I've been trying to catch a shadow for months, and finally spotted one the other evening.

A dark shadow shot...



“There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.”

Looks like 2 shadows captured huh? One on the ceiling & another to the right on the wall. Cool!
