Shadows in the Museum...

"Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides."
Junichiro Tanizaki

...I was struck by the beauty of the patterns made by shadows as much as I was struck by the beautiful art here in the museum...

  3. Great capture! Like the contrast of the modern structure's shadow against a very traditional structure.
