It’s been a long dry spell. Had lost all hope of finding something to photograph.
I felt I should somehow photograph this darkness.
And what’s darker than Shadows ?
And from Shadow, I saw Light !!
The late afternoon is a difficult time to shoot, with the sun just overhead casting deep shadows and high contrast. Since beautiful cityscapes were out of the question, I decided on some tiles stacked up on the terrace.
I felt today should be about shadows.
The white balance was set to sunny. I could really appreciate the difference in color temperature in the highlights and the shade. Never appreciated this kind of stuff before.
Shooting Ice becomes tiring after a while. Careful focusing with an adapted macro lens is painstakingly slow. The ensuing back ache becomes troubling and I found myself wanting to shoot something more relaxing.
That’s when I noticed these shadows. Funny I never noticed them before. I got my children to sit there.
I just had enough time to take 2 photographs, before they ran away. Children are so impatient!
