Bad Example?

Maybe that was a bad example. However, it matters not. Light can only be absorbed if it hits the event horizon. The event horizon isn't anything really. It is just a boundry. There are no properties of an event horizon. The actual mass of the black hole is only located at the singularity. HOWEVER, remember that light can be curved just enough by the less powerful gravity before the event horizon that it would in fact be directed at the event horizon just before it passes it. Maybe that's what you are trying to get at?
