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.
Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.
You did an awesome photo shot… Bravo! 😉
I’m humbled by your comment. Many thanks, and happy winter solstice.
I like the first one, the colors are rich yet mystifying. It does remind me of an impressionist abstract painting.
Thank you, it so much fun exploring the possibilities of the iPhone’s camera.
The lights gives a sense of hope that during this times of darkness, there is a light to guide us through. Merry Christmas and best wishes to your family.
Thank you, and my very best to your family and you.
Brilliant and stunning photos!! Absolutely love the delicate stem 🙂
Thank you, I’ve done a few posts on food and love the challenge, which you do well.
THANK YOU – I THINK THE LAST ONE IS THE BEST!!
Marialla, the vulnerability of the coneflower is what drew me to it. Many thanks.
I like the third one best. I think it is the most delicate, but I love the color in the first one as well.
Light is ephemeral and fleeting. It was a joy to catch these images. Thank you.
The second one makes it look as if the lights are running. I like that.
I appreciate your visit and comment.
Thirds is my favorite! Nice surrealistics images !
Thank you for your comment.
I love 2 & 3…they look like people
They remind me of alien night visitors. It’s so much fun to see the possibilities with iPhoneography. Thank you.
Love that first photo — so much mystery!
Thank you, I appreciate your visit and comment.

All of them are interesting in their own way. My fav is the last one though…just love the close ups. Nicely done indeed!
Thank you, it’s a constant journey of experimentation.
These must have been fun to take! Number one is my favourite – could have been taken by Turner if he used an i-phone instead of paints and brushes!
I’m totally speechless. My mother was an abstract expressionist painter, and I grew up around artists. A visit to the Tate Museum and my first view of Turner’s art (in person) brought tears to the surface. Thank you.
