“Photography” is derived from the Greek words photos (“light”) and graphein (“to draw or paint”).
Painting with Light
“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” – Ansel Adams
The “painting” effect of this image was achieved by motion while the shutter was wide open in addition to over exposing the subject. The subject in this image is a bouquet of pink and yellow Alstroemeria (Lilies).
Thank you Nora! Have a wonderful evening. Robyn

While reading the title, I had to think about something I wanted to do for a long time. You have surely heard from “Light painting”? This would be a nice challenge to dive into…
Have a great day!

Beautiful picture, Robyn, and wonderful quote by Ansel Adams. It reminds me of a free-spirited watercolor instead of a photograph. Amazing.
Oh Marylin what a beautiful compliment! Thank you ever so much! Blessings, Robyn
