Round Robin Challenge: Light Moves

"We cannot hold a torch to light anothers path, without brightening our own."

-Ben Sweetland

RRC: Light Moves
Suggested by Julie, of the blog, Julie's Web Journal


Julie, I hope I have the spirit of this challenge correctly. I think it is to show the different ways light moves, from reflections to light refracted. If that is correct, then I just had to post this photo once again. It is one of my favorite among might lighthouse series, and every time I look at it I just get a sense of hope. It's like in that moment I am standing in a kind of home away from home. But then again, lighthouses usually make me feel that way. ::Smile:: .

Let's follow the light... shall we?










Dark Clouds, with the hope of light behind them.










I don't know why, but I just really enjoy the light in this one.








Shadows have always fascinated me. In the darkness, a little bit of light makes things seem bigger then they are. As a little girl I appreciated that, as a short all growd up lady, I still appreciate that.

:)










Ahhh... The autumn light reflects through the spicy leaves... it's soul stirring to me.










Julie, of the blog, Julie's Web Journal, came up with this challenge for us in a recent Round Robin Idea Roundup. Isn't it an awesome challenge topic? Thanks Julie, I really had a lot of fun with this one.

There is still time to play along with this week's challenge, just pay a visit to the official Round Robin blog to learn all the details. And be sure to stop by tomorrow to learn what our next challenge will be. I should have it posted a little after midnight. Hope to see you next time!

It was a wonderful suggestion, though I may not have done it the way she was talking about. ::sigh::

I enjoyed your photographs especially the one of Golden Gate or is it the Bay Bridge? That the fall leaves were my favorites.

Beautiful!
