When Darkness Comes

Oh that sense of power
To “turn down the sun”
With a thumb
Click click click
Just like that!

We photographers love that!
Crush those shadows
Let that back-lighting POP!
It’s just too much.
Too much fun
Too much control!

And in the process
We learn to appreciate shadows
Their dark mystery
Telling secrets ignored.

That dried flower
Is not actually glowing
We all glow
We just don’t know it

a simple photograph with “the sun turned down a little”


  1. I love the mystery of this picture……..I want to see what is beyond the beauty of the dried flower………..i see a hint of color, which mixes so nicely and leads to curiousity! one of my favorite pictures yet. 🙂
