Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination.

Lit from within


Well, the weekly photo challenge (dailypost.wordpress.com) subject for this week is “Illumination”, and I love to take pictures of light, so my only problem is choosing. The one above I actually took especially!

These next
three I scanned from old prints, taken in the good old days when I had a (working) SLR film camera, and a wonderful macro lens.  The smokey sunrise followed a ‘burn-off’ near our house, and the red sun almost nestling in the agave flower spike was too good to ignore.

heart full of light

This one was a result of playtime – no kids home . I covered the window to allow only one bright ray of sunshine to fall on a spot on the floor, and then fiddled with the wire and crystal hearts to get the effect of radiant illumination.

A chunk of tumbled stone – the kind sold in hippy-shops   – placed in a bright ray of sunshine, once again, and acting as a crude lens, concentrating the brightness to a pool of illuminationApple blossom

Back to the digital, with it’s auto focus that doesn’t always obey me – hence the soft focus on the blossom. However, I still like the image for the soft illumination of the flowers and leaves. I think it’s quite evocative of spring.
