I think it was at this little kasbah by the Sahara that I finally discovered one of the secrets of these Moroccan lamps â€” the shadows! It's all about the shadows, I think. Well, the colors too. And the design. Well I guess it's about many things, but I started to pay special attention to the shadows. I also noticed it was important to have a single (small) bright light in the middle to make all the shadows right. If it was a bigger light, like a fat lightbulb inside, the shadows would be much less defined and more gaussian, I suppose.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
