So this week take a five minute field trip. Head outside and look for shadows.
Where will you find them? Pretty much anywhere where an object is blocking light. A tree trunk, a leaf, the stem of a winter weed, a bunch of friends....
Things to jot down in your notebook:
- do some surfaces create crisper shadow outlines than others?
- are there certain times of the day that are better for shadow-catching?
- what's the skinniest thing you can find a shadow of?
- make a list of all the things that cast shadows in your neighborhood.
