I took these two photos at two different times of day on Wednesday in response to the prompt for day seventeen of Photography 101: Glass. It was during this winter’s first snow.
Outside was a soft monochrome world, dimly lit, the sky grey with snow, and the trees blanketed in white. Inside the room was shadowed, the sunlight never making it much past the window panes.
I was struck by the way the colored glass on the widow sill caught what little light there was, more so in the first photo than in the second, and how in both, the color of the glass separated itself from the rest of its surroundings.
The second shot was too dimly lit for my old G9 to handle. It’s grainy, but I didn’t want to turn on the flash and lose the muffled mood of the scene.
What about you? Would you have deleted the second photo?
