This week’s photo study was inspired by The Candid Frame’s video in which Ibarionex speaks about the opportunities of light and shadow that a photographer will find in rural communities as well as in the dynamics of cities such as New York or Hong Kong.
Bring out the play of light and shadow within the scene.
Be open to how light and shadow shifts the mundane into something exciting.
Allow the shadows to go black by adjusting the exposure.
Find a scene and wait…
I appreciate the encouragement to silence the envy when viewing photographs created within the dynamics of large urban areas by waking up to the amazing opportunities of light and shadow one will find…anywhere.
I hope you, too, are inspired by The Candid Frame’s video, Street Photography Anywhere. I am looking forward to reading your comments and seeing how you play with light and shadow within your town. Let’s tag with #aphotostudy.
In the mountain shade,
water in the moss
drips between rocks.
I feel a glimmer of clarity.

I wonder where
the winds of spring
drive the snow clouds
Nancy’s photo challenge for this week is: Shine, “Has the sunshine or any other light source caused you to stop because it’s highlighting something you didn’t notice before?”
The design of this building; that is, the way it’s structure invited light and shadow to play with it’s mirrors and windows, not only caused me to stop it also invited me to revisit the building at different times of the day to “be in awe” of how it reflected ongoing changes of the weather as well as the sun’s journey.

…in order to know we must trust our ancestors – trust them deeply. Spinoza points out the fact that our knowledge of parentage and the date of our birth is, in fact, what he calls ‘knowledge by hearsay’.*

the years have piled up
snow on withered fields
