Interesting Light

The word prompt from Jenn at Traveling At Wits End for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Interesting Light

“Sometimes photographers look for a subject first – what we’re going to photograph – and forget to look for the light.”

Quite often the lighting is something that draws me to take a photo.

Walking into a room, the lighting and setting looked just perfect. There are a few things I would change but I am content with the result.

Sometimes the lighting lends itself to black and white

Again the lighting in the room attracted my attention. This one is a rare photo taken with my phone which I don’t use all that often. Yes a lazy shot as I couldn’t be bothered to go and get my camera

Another black and white. The light across the rocks on the beach gave deep shadows but the texture is still evident.

More from the beach. Using shadows as the focal point. The shadow walked across the rock face

An extreme close up of the sun at sunset through clouds. Light and dark to give emphasis.

Music – It’s black and white

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Related to Music

A great book

There seems to be a theme in the bookcase

Once there were actual records

Then came the CDs
