Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby. ~Ruth E. Renkel
This post is my response to the photo challenge Dreamy. It’s also my belated response to the Blogging 101 assignment Try a New Posting Style. I decided to pair one of my photos with a quote. This isn’t stretching myself much, but it’s all I could muster these past several days to catch up a bit.
I wish I could have gotten out this weekend to photograph the fall foliage, but I was occupied working in our little gallery. It was quite busy because of a fall festival which ran Saturday, Sunday and the holiday Monday. It might have also been nice to stroll around town and photograph the crowd. The festival-goers and leaf-peepers were out, but sadly I was not. With my eyes wandering out the window and my mind drifting to fall color and this weeks photo challenge, I remembered this dance of light and shadow that I captured a couple of years ago. It was a fantastically bright day, rich with contrast. Standing in the shadows of the forest looking into the light, the landscape seemed a bit surreal and dreamy.
… And since this is the second time I have responded to the weekly photo challenge, I think I’ll make it a habit thereby completing another Blogging 101 assignment, Create a New Regular Feature. 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
