“What men call the shadow of the body is not the shadow of the body, but is the body of the soul”
Shadow man ? or silhouetted man? Or a shade of a man?
The other day when I was enjoying my beverage in the restaurant, I noticed an image on the wall and lost no opportunity to have a shot.
As a beginner, I used to get confused about the various terms being used. What I understand is my limited knowledge as follows.
- Shadow: Used to describe a specific object or people blocking the Sunlight.
- Shade: Used to describe the general areas blocked by Sunlight. Ex- Shade from the tree, Shade from building etc. The size of Both shadow & shade depends on the intensity and direction of the Sunlight.
- Silhouette: It is the specific shape/outline of an object /person cast by the light source.
I presume the above image is that of a silhouette of the man.
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
