During an art class while in college, the professor asked what all the masterpieces had in common. Have the typical suspect of answers were chanted one at a time like "proportion", "color", "detail". The professor dropped his clipboard and screamed, "Don't you people pay attention to what you are looking at?" He paused for what seemed to be five minutes before saying, "Shadows, people, everything casts shadows."

Well now. It would seem that this instructor had a traumatic experience one day when he was hiding from the sun. Good thing to remember thought. I'll picture him in every image where there are shadows. I just won't be able to see him. Kind of eerie.
