Let me know what you think about my photograph.
What intrigues me about windows is their reflective qualities. During the day the illumination can be palpable. In just the right position for the sun’s brilliance, a window can be astoundingly magnificence.
It easy to dream about a favorite stained-glass window shot with beams of sunlight. The difference between the lit and unlit are vast.
I feel the same about the difference between a window bathed in light from the daytime vs. various brushstrokes of artificial light broadcast inside out at night. There is a divergent, yet similar quality realized.
In the Lens section is an image that I took a few months ago. I was experimenting with late evening light–light filtering from the interiors of buildings and light spread by exterior lampposts.
I was particularly drawn to this series of windows that made for a backdrop as I walked passed a wall of the University of Delaware Morris Library. Without a doubt it was the reflection of the trees that made the scene stand at attention for me. The series of windows mirrored the outside in the deep of dark, and made images dance across the glass.
