Monday 22 November 2010: Shadows, Colour, Waiting

Look round and round upon this bare bleak plain, and see even here, upon a winter's day, how beautiful the shadows are!

Alas! it is the nature of their kind to be so. The loveliest things in life, Tom, are but shadows; and they come and go, and change and fade away, as rapidly as these!


~ Charles Dickens



In photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated.
~ August Sander



Impossible to escape
the shadows
this time of year
They come earlier and earlier

Afternoon barely exists
or rather exists lightless.
However, the eye continues
to look for colour
and sometimes finds it.

This day, a pale, bleak, watery
colour settles over my dreams
And I cannot help but wait

And hope that in my waiting
a kind of magic is born.
A light thought hidden
in darkness
is uncovered.

Once again,
I am waiting
for illumination.
~me

The world is all gates, all opportunities, strings of tension waiting to be struck. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
