I think that this moving machine from Jean Tinguely forms a nice mural. (See my posting from yesterday)

Here some details

What is machine and what is shadow is difficult to see and especially when everything is going to move. One for Monday Murals here.

In the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam I saw this machine from Jean Tinguely with an impressive shadow on the wall. He made all kind of machines moving and vibrating when they were new but now, 25 years after he died, they may be moved but with utmost care. I saw it first in 1961 in the same building under the name moving movement and the whole building was filled with the most strange sounds, movements and machines. Now one in the 10 apparatus can still move for say one minute in every 15 minutes and the rest are just still. Yes everything become old. One for Shadow Shot Sunday here.

Nice afternoon in Rotterdam

Another one from the underground.

Can't get enough of the working light shadow in the entrances of the metro in Amsterdam.
For once I wonder what is better but I still prefer the color one. What do you think.
