Sunlight Came Softly. . .



While I was having coffee in a little shop a few weeks ago, I looked over and saw light sneaking through blind on the wall, throwing a striped pattern on this plant and its pot.  I tend to notice light patterns both indoors and outdoors and love how it plays with objects it touches.

Do you pay attention to light?

What is it Wednesday? Revealed. . . .
If you guessed that yesterday's What Is It Wednesday? was a rotting tree, you're half right.  It was actually one of the posts holding up the fence separating our yard from the cow pasture behind us.  Two days after I took the photos, the farmer replaced the rotting post with a metal one.  We prefer the wood, but it's his fence!  ;-)

Exciting note:  On August 2, Nashville Daily Photo celebrates its first birthday.

I found your blog recently and I must say I look forward to your photos every morning! Thank you for all you do. I love this one pic today!

It never occurred to me that this was a fence post. I should have thought of that as it would be a likely place for blue birds to build a nest in a cavity in a rotting post. Maybe this one was too far gone for that and now it is gone, period. And replaced by metal.

I don't remember the first comment on your blog but I remember you and your blog from a long time ago, it seems.

Since I really started studying photography the awareness of light and shadows is all consuming. I notice it everywhere and look at everything as a potential photograph. Occasionally it's maddening!

The stripes of light and the polka dots on the planter make a nice contrast!

My blog's birthday is 8.8.2007. I guess we both got into this around the same time.

I used to notice the light, as in, it's dark in here, turn on a light. Now I notice the Light. and the Shadow. and the Color. and the Texture. It's a multi-dimensional world, and your photo is a great example.
And thanks for your kind words, we are still wrapping our minds around the event. just glad to be here.

Chris, this is such a stunning photo. I would have to stay, judging by it, that I don't pay enough attention to lights and shadows. You have inspired me to start lookint!
