    Please excuse me. At first glance, I am aware of that during noon there are no long shadows. If you meant the wall’s thin shadow after a minute or two from noon, then I would emphasize that image instead of what appears to me as word play.

    no problem, martin. no cleverness for the cleverness' sake here… it's clear that on the horizontal plane noon shadows are short. but on the vertical plane like a sunlit wall (where the snail was) the shadow will be long if the sun is high enough(which, in Ljubljana, with latitude approx. 46 deg. north, will happen in the summer). it's the principle sundials work on, at least where i live (not that there are many left, though)…
    cheers, polona

    I am simple minded. It is very nice, indeed! I am still learning the basics after eleven years from this extraordinary art.

    Thank You,
