Not all shadows are equal.
As I was pouring my coffee this morning, I looked at the mirror on the wall next to my coffee pot (the mirror serves as my backsplash in the kitchen) and I saw this shadow under it. Or, should I say "shadows" (plural). I was reminded to not assume that a drop shadow (or cast shadow) is all the same darkness. Each little curl of the mirror's edge is different depths, and each casts its own darkness of shadow.
