This week is all about shadows.
To get a shadow one must first have light.
Visible light spreads out in waves as it leaves its source. These waves travel in straight lines through the air until they hit an object. The object will absorb some of the waves and reflect some back into the air. Behind any object that has stopped the light waves is a dark spot, or shadow, which is simply a space where no light is.

My husband painted a movie screen on a wall in our basement so we could watch movies, play games etc. with our projector. It was well worth the cost of the projector and we have used it more times than I can count. Surround sound gives us an 'at the movie experience'.
This is me taking a photo of my own shadow against the painted screen.
In order to get it completely dark we put up black curtains on the windows.
I like how the light makes a pattern on the curtain.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
