I. Playing with Night Light
II. Delicate Stem
Let me know which you prefer and why.
Delicate is the theme of WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. That simple everyday descriptor conjures soft silks, cat’s fur, glass vases, a broken heart, floating clouds…The list is limitless and easily changes with each new thought.
In the Lens section I’ve posted two sections of images. The first shows photographs of a shoot on a cold November night. On that evening stroll I watched the ambient light cast silhouettes, and encourage me to play with my iPhone.
The images are delicate renderings of light thrown from homes and street lamps. They made for an eerie, almost alien captures. Their ephemeral qualities fit into today’s challenge.
In the second section is the image of a delicate stem of a coneflower, barely holding the flowerhead. Its energy has been tested. But it remains on duty. It show one of the season’s last beauties.
Delicate can mean fragile. Or it can envision the dainty sound that emanates from a violin. Regardless, it’s a word with a range of emotions.
