Four bolts

It was here

The metal newspaper box outside the former candy store had been removed a long time ago.  Traces of its presence remain:  the four bolts that anchored the box to the sidewalk, and, the less worn and lighter shaded sidewalk concrete beneath the box.

Shade illusion

Leading edge of the shade

When you look at the light-shade boundary between the shaded and the lit areas, there seems to be a narrow band of shade on the shadow side of the boundary that is darker than the rest of the shaded area.   Likewise, there seems to be a narrow band of light along the lit side of the boundary that is brighter than the lit area.

The light-shade boundary itself is not sharply defined.
