    ... and had to startle my guest by suddenly getting out my camera and taking a photo of one corner of the restaurant.

    But do YOU understand why I did it?

    It's kind of a confusing pic, the more I try and understand it I get more confused, it looks like a window in the mirror, that is possibly producing the light on the wall?? Please explain.

    The windows were to my left, and the mirror on the wall opposite me. The sun shining through the windows cast the shadows, while the actual window reflected in the mirror. So I thought it'd be a nice idea to catch the shadows on the yellow wall and the reflection of what actually produced them in the mirrow.

    I didn't think it'd be so confusing... ooops :oops:

    Editing in: what might require some explaining, upon looking at the photo with the eyes of someone who's confused is that you actually ONLY see the opposite wall, which has got a - now what is the word for that in English? - a tiny corner, i.e. the part where there's the mirror springs a little back from the part where there's the shadow. Do I explain myself here???
