Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.
Ain’t that the truth!
We had left the Barnes & Noble bookstore in search of another cool place with free Wi-Fi….and food. Standing outside in the heat I took a few steps backwards to stand in the shade while trying to make up my mind about where to eat. “I think the pub there has Wi-Fi” says DH. “Done! Let’s go!” I says and off we went. As with all the other places we hopped around to, everyone was commiserating about if they did or didn’t have power and how they were managing. Our server told us that there was no rush for us to leave, to just go when we were ready after we told him our situation. We were not the only ones in there doing the same thing.
It was while sitting there reading the backs of the male and female servers t shirts; servers who also wore kilts – Wanker, Fancy another pint?, Cheers, Mate!, Bollocks – that I looked up and stared at the lights suspended over our booth. Oh and I am serious about the sayings on their t shirts. There was snickering at some of them and I am sure if you know the slang which ones I’m talking about. I sat there for a minute or two fascinated by the bell shaped lights above me which evolved into me mentally trying to compose a good shot and then my physically trying to get under them for the shot without crawling up on the table. Yes, I had my camera with me.
In the end, this is one of the shots I liked most.
