|Old vs new. Old wins.|
Photographically, the quality of the light around these times of day is sublimely lovely. But there's far more to it than that. Transitional times like these seem to slow down time as we come face-to-face with an elemental force of our life on this planet. Watching the sky lighten or darken is an act of humble reverence, a chance to feel small, to appreciate that the universe will do its thing no matter how important we humans think we are. Note to self: we aren't.
Another note to self: stare out the window more often when scenes like these present themselves. Life's too short to miss them.
Your turn: Take a sunrise or sunset-themed photo (bonus points for the artistic/source reference) and post it to your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share in the photographic joy. Head here if you're new to the Thematic thing. And feel free to smile while you're at it: that's the entire point of this little activity of ours.
