A Little Light Music

While I was seated in the sitting room this morning, blinded by bright sunshine reflected from Jessie’s present of a solar light creating its own moon and star-scape, I became inspired to wander round the house playing

a little light music.

After lunch I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2021/11/21/a-knights-tale-68-the-mans-fingers-still-clutched-the-ball/

Otherwise much of the day was spent clearing my desk and other areas of our entrance hall, in readiness for the start on the floor tomorrow.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s Special Foo Yung; Angela’s flavoursome spring rolls; and Co-op pork spare ribs, followed by mince pies and ice cream; with which Jackie drank more of the non-alcoholic sparkling rosรฉ while I drank Pierre Jaurant Special Edition Merlot 2020.


  1. What a fun game, and a beautifully harmonious tune!
    Your house refurbishment seems to be progressing apace… I guess work indoors has to keep up with your usual success and productivity in the garden!
    Lovely to hear that Mince Pies are now on the desert menu – we must be entering the festive season ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Interesting photos! I love the contrast of light and shadow. Your house is as charming as your garden. I particularly like the little staircase with the window counter at the bottom.

  3. These are fabulous photos, Derrick! The sun playing hide and seek with the shadows creating artistic masterpieces!
    Beautiful music…Mr. Mozart playing in my head. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hey! You even captured your shadow! ๐Ÿ™‚
    (((HUGS))) ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I see the light singing through the windows. I love how it dances along the carpet and with the red edges of the flower shaped bowl.

  5. This is a fascinating series of photos. The interplay of light and shadow is the essence of photography, its variations creating effects that have meanings and appeals of their own.

    1. Thank you very much, Uma. Some years ago I attended a weekend photography course run by Chris Weston, who spoke of photography as painting with light. I was, incidentally, the only member of the group using a film camera.

  6. So glad I was able to enjoy Streisand while I read your Knight’s Tale, {{{Derrick}}} – a great combination! And I loved your light show!
