Light Has No Shadow


On Facebook, I saw a  photo of a candle that had Light Has No Shadow written on it. 

Bazinga! 

MadSnapper HAD TO DO IT Toooooooo.... 

I had a 10 minute photo fest with one candle and 
my tiny little flashlight.      

I don't know what the saying  means or why that person posted it.

 I don't know why their is no shadow of the flame,  I don't really care what, who or why.
I tried it

   " JUST BECAUSE!!" and I LOVE PLAYING WITHE FIRE

I love your sense of adventure with a camera, Sandra. You have so much fun without having to travel very far at all!

Hello Sandra, so you enjoy playing with fire? They are pretty candlelight and shadow shots. Enjoy your day!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Fascinating! I have to remember to look for this next time I burn a candle.

Very pretty. Candles are pretty but my poor hubby is allergic to candles when lit like this. His nose runs like a tap and his eyes run. (Bummer) So I have had for Christmas a basket with tiny lights and cones and Christmas delight arrangement looking like Christmas adorn. You plug in the basket an it lights up.


Not like the real thing though.

Nice blog and Candle images.

I never knew that the flames didn't leave a shadow...I learn something new every day. You got some great shots with your candles and flashlight!

DawnTreader said...

Fascinating. I knew of course when I saw it on FB that you'd have to try it...

Rebecca said...

Oh dear. I hope you had a fire extinguisher handy. lol.

Jo said...

OMW! That's interesting! I never knew that until you "proved" it today!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I saw that on Facebook and wondered if it was true!

Anita Johnson said...

Very interesting...I cant wait for it to get dark!

Gorgeous!!!

That is so cool and isn't it fascinating that the flame does not cast a shadow. I am sure there is some scientific explanation but who cares, it's a great series of photos. Clever you!

TexWisGirl said...

you're a mess. :)

Ann Thompson said...

well isn't that interesting. I had no idea that the flame wouldn't cast a shadow. Of course even though you showed us your pictures I want to try it for myself

Gail said...

Great post!

Would that have anything to do with the button (I have one) that is pushed when some one says you can't do something?

Inger said...

Never thought about it before. I love how I don't have to be on Facebook to learn new things. Just as long as there's you!

Rose said...

Oh, wow, Sandra. That is just so cool...

Eva Marie O'Brien said...

diane b said...

When I saw that on Facebook I just knew you would have to try it...being the MadSnapper...
Great experiment and great photos.

Thanks for the experimen, Sandra, and of course it made me curious as to WHY the flame had no shadow. There are lots of explanations out there, some more technical than others. Here's a link to one...http://www.quora.com/Why-doesnt-a-fire-or-a-flame-cast-a-shadow-while-other-things-around-it-do

You are a hoot!

Ida said...

At first I thought, "There's a shadow there" which there is but now I realize it's not of the flame but of the candle and the wick. That is interesting. So glad you did this little experiment and shared.
