Painting with Light

“Photography” is derived from the Greek words photos (“light”) and graphein (“to draw or paint”).

“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).

The World Spins

The World Spins

Stress Enters.

Life becomes overwhelming.

Stress becomes life.

The world spins.

We forget to breath.

The world spins.

Then suddenly,

The spinning slows.

And we stop,

And breath.

Once again

Light guides us forward,

And we carry on.

Carry on.
