Shadow Shot Sunday - with a celebrity!

We were lucky enough to hear Shuli Natan tonight, in a local concert. She's pretty famous in Israeli circles, primarily for singing the song Yerushalayim shel Zahav (Jerusalem of Gold). I found this video of her singing it back in 1967 - it gets cut off a couple of minutes in, but you certainly get the idea.

Anyway, about halfway through the concert, I noticed that there were some wacky shadows going on behind her, and decided to try and capture them for you:

She looks awfully young for someone born in 1947, don't you think? And wowee, what a beautiful voice!
 
Way to go, Shuli!
And thanks so much to my dear daughter who was sitting behind me and helped me get these shots :)
For more shadowy photography, go right now to Shadow Shot Sunday 2. You'll be glad that you did! Happy Sunday, everyone!

The singer offers the audience her love of her performance - the smile is infectious, her enthusiasm what the listeners hope for, The shadows enhance the lively and heartfelt performance. Very nice post and pics!

A beautiful voice! Born in 1947? Seriously? I would never have in a million years guessed that! She looks fantastic!

Nothing shadowy about her voice!

BOOKISH SHADOWS

Darksome shadows in my path,
You are not the Grapes of Wrath;

And yet when I hear your hums,
Something Wicked This Way Comes!

May your darkness turn to light
Like The House of Mirth, all right?

May all sadness drift away—
Send Lolita here to play!

Shuly is indeed a great performer! Saw and met her in November 2010. :)

Did you get any videos of the concert?
