Shadow puppet

I've been experimenting with shadow recently. Shadow and my camera. I was surprised at how much I was actually able to do and still get amazing results. I didn't have anyone to help me, which means all the shadow limbs are my own. Obviously I can't be in 2 places at once so the pictures needed to be edited together afterwards using Gimp 2. I put my camera on 10 second timer and then got into position. This created a bit of camera wobble and the shots that were supposed to join together didn't match exactly so the editing I had to do was a bit more advanced than I would have liked, but I managed. Here's the results:

The quality on this one is atrocious: I focused my camera too close, sorry!

What do you think? Why not have a go at some shadow pictures yourself? I'd really really like to see your take!
