This is a great idea. Very nice work Klaus.


Hello, Klaus. I've revisited your galley once more to view you shadows. They always remind me that wherever one goes and whatever one does, whenever there is light one leave something of himself. Best wishes, Robbie.


There is no shadow without light. I love shadows too, it reminds existence.


Hi! Beautiful and interesting works!


I love the thought of capturing the shadow as a portrait! Best Wishes, Deborah
