Tiny Dancers (Weekend Reflections # 52)

These are the tiny dancing fairies that live in the shoe cobbler's window. It's a striking little red building that looks very old. Every time I walk by I expect these little ladies to start dancing and twirling to strange dreamy music.
I also wonder if they're waiting for the return of the Tiny Iceman of Newtown.
You can see the blurred reflections of the brick buildings across the street but it's obvious who the stars of this photo are.

Si 'Tsuki dit "féérique", que vais-je pouvoir dire ? I love it ! C'est comme dans un rêve ...

Francisca said...

The red brick reflection is the curtain being raised for the dancers. Sweet...

EG Wow said...

The cobbler has a lively imagination to have fairies in his window. I wonder if they help the elves repair shies at night.

Pam said...

It happened in the blink of an eye, but I think the fairy in the middle winked just as I clicked to revisit the Newtown Iceman.

Lovely #52 reflection post, James.
Thanks for hosting Weekend Reflections!

Cat said...

I bet they are dancing until you get near the window, then they stop..then start again after you've gone past...but only at night time, when strange things like this happen. During the day, they stay still as stones and watch the world go by. Nice photo! Go to the cemetery!! ;o) Cat

Luis Gomez said...

Great image!

NatureFootstep said...

made me think of x-mas decorations :)

These are beautiful miniature dolls! They look like marionettes dancing, I could see the thin strings.

Margaret Bednar said...

#72 - I messed up & tried to put the title of my photo with quotes. If you can go in and correct it - just put my blog title Art Happens 365. So sorry. And thank you for hosting this fun challenge.

Owen said...

Truly awesome image James... just the way I like 'em, with a raw edge to it, the flawed, scratched window, the blur in the reflections, and just a bit of magic in those floating dancers... if Elton John could see this !

katney said...

Is it really a year? Oh, my! It's been about six weeks since we returned from two and a half weeks in the UK and my posts have finally reached our weekend in London. Once again, a great collection of reflections presented itself for this weekend. Another awaits next week. I may make it home the week after--lol.
