Fascinating patterns of shadowsRemember the time when you were a kid and your parents or siblings would entertain you with a story through shadows on the wall, these created with the hands and fingers? Dogs, cats, deer, birds, and butterflies would come alive on those walls. Surely some of you as parents or grandparents will now be entertaining the children at home in the same manner. During childhood there were also those outdoor fun times, trying to catch the shadows of other kids or even one's own shadow.
As an adult, do you look at shadows real closely? Look outside your windows and see the lovely design created by a flowering plant or a tree, small or large, on the compound ground or wall and on the road. Check out the shadow created by the milkman's bicycle with its large milk cans (yes, he may come really early but shadows maybe there, created by the street light). Indoors, when the sunbeams playfully dance on the walls, floor or furniture, look at the unique patterns created by shadows. Note how even a single sliver of the sun throws a pattern on the kitchen floor.
If you have never bothered to notice shadows, then it's time you did! Believe me, it will open up a fascinating new vista. Snap up some with your camera and share them here if possible (up to three maximum). Let us know, too, what you perceived in the design of the shadow.
