Day and night

The 2020 Photo Challenge #21

This week's assignment - Use strong backlighting (i.e. shooting towards the light source, but do not look directly at the sun) to create a contre-jour image where the subject becomes a silhouette, OR shoot the light through flowers or leaves creating a transparent effect.

One for using the sun

One for using the Moon

and lets go inside too. I think black and white works better for this scene

and showing the structure of leaves

A Step at the Start of a Journey

The quote to inspire from Debbie at Travel with Intent

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”
– Lao Tzu

Sometimes that step can be daunting.
Whether you look up
to see what could lay ahead.
Spiraling upward
perhaps to touch the stars.spiral stairs_lismore_changed_named_june 2014

Or look down
into the depths of darkness.
Making sure each step
is taken with care.

But ultimately
that step can one of light
showing the way.
Always try to take that step,
even though
sometimes that step can be daunting.
