Lines and shadows

Friendly Friday Challenge: Leading Lines
Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #198: Light and Shadow

Why put both challenges together? I found a lot of my photos have both elements. Some of these may be placed into one or the other but some a well into both challenges.

I think I will go with a theme within the challenge themes. I haven’t mentioned leading lines in the descriptions but I am sure you will pick those photos among the light and shadow ones.

Starting with sunsets which make great light and shadows

Staying with artificial light play and shadows

and just some sunlight used in different ways. For indoors

and outside

Appearing

Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Emerging from…?

An emerging or a beginning?

Emerging from the night, a sunrise is a good start

Let’s begin with the flowers. A Grevillea starting to open

I think this is a Dahlia

A pink Hibiscus

Frangipanni flowers

A lovely Rose

Now for a bit of nature, some not as pretty as flowers. Willie Wagtail chicks not long out of the shell and eyes aren’t open yet.

Welcome Swallow Chicks are always hungry and ready as Mum flies in

I love seeing the Joeys when they start to hesitantly pop their heads from their Mums pouch

Wide eyed they survey their world and keep an eye on the bloke with a camera although Mum doesn’t care all that much

A rare moment finding a Cicada emerging from its shell

My favourite emerging photo

and an emerging moonrise is a goodnight
