    […] Remember this post? Well, I was reminded by SomeContrast to try it with a torch. The possibilities are endless with the different things you draw on an invisible board. It’s clearer than a clear canvas!  For the above photo I wrote God’s name in Arabic (Allah) and that has given me a nice idea for an original Ramadan e-card… […]
