Maybe one does not consider this as a shadow…
One can see on this image that the opaque objects generate a grey shadow (not colored), then we can consider that a shadow is the absence of light…
But then what about the partly colored "shadow"generated by semi transparent objects (such as a colored glass) is it a shadow or a projection?
Physic laws may certainly explain that, but what about your own feeling?

Here work done by crabs. Small and speedy !

Antonio, today I came across our Aussie version of the crab, the soldier crab. They don't make art, just a sloppy mess of sand balls, so bad I couldn't find a single example to photograph.
The crabs themselves, beautiful. I spent a good hour getting to know them.

This is a radical reminder that we are stuck with the idea of black shadows. And a fine image to kick us out of that notion.

A good point, Reginald!

You too, Like Nicolas and Reginald, are way ahead of me. The blue is very pretty and the idea so simple.

Michael,

So, it's a beer mug, a light and what are the long "sticks" below? Is this some pub or in you visited?

Asher,

it was this place. A new brewery and restaurant in Munich.

The sticks are just - wooden sticks.

Best regards
Michael

Michael,

Fabulous place to relax and have a great beer! Is it normal to allow only those over16 to see inside a place that serves alcohol?

Asher,

it is a little more complex. Families with kids can go anywhere except places indicate a minimum age for various reasons.
For viewing the website of the brewery the same minimum age as for drinking beer is demanded - 16 years.

Best regards
Michael
