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

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.
