Light Play

Here’s me, experimenting with light on a transparent snowflake ornament.  I purposefully allowed the whites to become blown, and set it up so that the shadow would fall on the wall behind it…  bringing “to light” the nature of darkness in our every day world.  This may be something I play with more once my eyes are healed well enough to play with my good camera.

I actually really like this image when it’s small…  here it is scaled way down.

Am looking forward to playing further with this idea using a REAL camera.  Should yield some interesting results.
