created by light


Sometimes, the interplay of light and objects creates the most amazing shapes. Last week I was at a creative retreat, listening to Hannah Nunn, the creator of these beautiful lamps, talk about her business. I have to confess that throughout the interview, I was completely entranced by the checkerboard shape of light and dark that appeared in this wine glass against the lamps and black background. I watched as the interviewer slowly sipped the wine down and the checkerboard shape disappeared. When the interview was over, I had to go and capture this amazing shape created by the interplay of light and liquid.

I had the same mesmerizing feeling in this image by betsyblue. The light in the darkness just draws me in. There is something about the circle of light created within the circle of candles; it makes me feel as if the wagons have been drawn around to keep the darkness at bay, and the center is a safe, sheltering place. A fantastically seen shape created by the candle light.

I am wow'ed by the amazing images in the pool, this is shaping up to be a fabulous week of musing! Thanks for joining us.
