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.
Our Moon behind clouds with a rainbow ring. Using a tree in silhouette to add interest.
The word prompt from Ragtag Daily Prompt: Abstract
I love this theme. I often think of photography as art as well as capturing life in the moment. I have quite a number of photos that I have deliberately taken in a folder called “Arty Ones”
All of these photos are what I saw with my minds eye. None have been altered or enhanced. Many involve shadows or water as they can provides many abstract images. I hope you enjoy my Abstract images.
Walking on the rocks
The Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly in the garden
The shape hidden in the banner
Dancing on the leaf
Patterns and reflections
Shadow on the post
Liquid flowing glistening solid
Brian Eno’s music can be abstract. This track Reflections suits what I try to do
