Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.
~ Mary Oliver
As we draw near to the solstice, it seems that when I pick up my camera I come face-to-face with the lack of light. To feed my creative appetite I’ve been playing with edits instead.
i captured this image back in February. You may recall a similar shot.
It’s interesting how a slightly different edit, and the use of texture, can give a photograph a very different look.
It reminds me that how I see, and experience, the circumstances of my day is largely based on how I choose to see them.
