This is my way of thinking about the relationship between light and shadow - the two of them play together, but only in the spaces between objects, where we don't normally look.
You know how sometimes you just get up at exactly the right time? This was the scene that greeted me last Saturday!
Taking delight in the local woodland lake
I look beyond the obvious and into the spaces to find my photograph opportunities. If I am attentive, I will see them.
A weekend away with the express purpose of relaxing and chilling - nothing planned and no schedules to keep to. The sun streams through the bedroom windows, telling me its a lovely day. The outdoors beckons. I venture outside with my camera.
One of the things I really enjoy about public holidays is the sense that it is unexpected time out. For me, these days off are more precious than weekends because they offer time to just ‘be’.
