Volume 7 - Issue 39

Today's photographs focus on light and shadows, our interpretations of them and the differences, if any, a slight shift in perspective makes. The only story behind these is that the photographs were the ones that popped out, requesting being featured today. Should you need more, I invite you to make up a story about them up and share on the blog, if you wish.

palm frond on the ground in Wakodahatchee Wetlands

On a recent walk in Wakodahatchee Wetlands, following my "rule" of photographing anything that catches the eye, I used my iPhone camera to capture this dead frond dropped from a palm tree.

Then I zoomed in on it with the camera, settling on two very slightly different, views.

Though only a shift up of a few inches, less than a foot, the feeling emanating from each differs.

I'm intrigued with the imagery in the upper photo, feeling the invitation to go into the dark space and explore.

With the lower photo, I'm moved to stay on the outside. Perhaps it is because the light is slightly more predominant and focused. Also the gently curled leaf, seems to be asking us to stay back.

Self-Reflecting Queries -

Looking into your life, do you prefer to stay in the shadows; go forth into the unknown, perhaps darkness; or hold back to be in the seeming light?

Have fun, and please share on the blog your experience with these photos and what comes up for you.
