In the Harsh Light of Day
Taking photos at different times of the year of the same thing can give you very different outcomes. At the beginning of the year I took some photos of the front of the bluestone that belongs to Deaf Children Australia on a particularly hot day. I didn’t like it, here let me refresh your memory of the image.
I thought the light was too harsh and I really didn’t like the look of the doors. The shadows were really harsh. I always thought I would go back and do it again. I did, sort of, though I did the front of the building.
The light is so much better on this image. I love the view as well, looking straight up. Now, how perfect are those clouds, they almost look they were painted. I should have taken some photos of just the clouds.
You get a much better look at the doors here, the light is softer and it doesn’t look so harsh. I am liking that word today.
I hope you agree. I have to make this quick, I’ve been working on my artist statement most of the day, it is starting to take shape, but it is a slow process. Hopefully it will be great by the time I have to send it anywhere next week.
