Woah! Talk about an optical illusion too... Nicely spotted, wonderfully rendered and, as always, well presented.

And you always find it! Even in an ordinary chair.

The geometry created by shadows is a grand thing to explore and you do it better than anyone else I know.

The geometry of shadows is often what I photograph at the dam when the birds are languishing in the heat doing very little, and the light is too harsh for much of anything. If there one bird, I can usually find something with shape and shadow to make an image from.

Simple, stupid, stunning. I think this is one of the best of this genre you have done.
Agree with above. Geometric shadows and the chrome finish beautiful.
Can you find room for this on your studio wall?

Both are nice, but I like the first for that creative use of shadow as a compositional element.
