Colors of the Day: In Light and Shadow

Looking back at my recent blog entries, I realized that many have to do with light and shadow. Some of my favorite photos are also because of the light and shadow patterns. Here are a few:





Why I like it: The light on the old swing and its shadow on the ground, the leaf patterns juxtaposed with the soft edges of the child.



Why I like it: The bouncing light which highlights the old child's rocker and, while it partially obscures the kitten, gives a shine to her eye and paw.





Why I like it: The stone lantern which is usually shaded by the trees and a rock wall, sometimes gets a pop of the sun which shows its ancient details.










Why I like it: The light on the hair and folds of the clothing; the shadows patterns hiding the faces and making a private moment.



Why I like it: Light and shadow highlighting the organic shapes of the foliage and worn cobblestones with the surprise of the 'hidden' eggs.

These photos are breathtaking. Why I like them: they showed me how to look in a new and fresh way :-)

Thanks, Britt-Arnhild,
You seem to like mine for the same reason I like yours -- a new, fresh way of seeing life in my country through the photos of yours.
