Shadow Shot Sunday – Rumpus in Respose


I was puttering about in my attic sewing studio with my camera this evening, and when I came down I noticed that Rumpus had fallen asleep … with his blinds open, the wrong way round on his bed, and still wearing his soccer goalie gloves. It’s rare to see him at peace – he’s always on the go and at full throttle, so when he does sleep it’s like it’s snuck up on him and taken him unawares.

I love the way the light strikes him, catching highlights in his hair, and the softness of the shadows in the textiles surrounding him.

    Wow..what a gorgeous shot! Super captivating!

  2. What a lovely shot. He had a big day! Even now my 18 year old falls asleep in the car in all of his work gear (as a passenger!) and it tugs at your heartstrings. You have captured that ‘man/boy’ essence. Oh they grow up so fast!

  3. Oh, how sweet! I always love black and white, great shot!

    How sweet and at peace he looks! He sure must have been very worn out from his soccer game to fall asleep with his gloves on! It’s a truly beautiful photo 🙂
