WEEK 5 - POCKETS OF LIGHT

This was not an easy theme for me, & I kept putting it off & putting it off. I just couldn't figure out what a "pocket of light" meant. After some failed pictures one night, I decided to take things easy & not stress over it anymore. I told myself that I might just have to settle. Yesterday morning, I decided to go for a walk with my babes. I kept thinking, "take your camera, take your camera" but didn't want to have to cart it around with me. Last minute, I grabbed it, put it in the bottom of the stroller & took off. I hoped that perhaps I might find something that would grab my attention at the park & would work out perfectly for the assignment. I wasn't having any luck . . .  until the end. As I was getting ready to leave, I saw some shadows on the ground by the picnic tables & had an ah-ha moment. I still don't know if this constitutes "pocket of light," but I like the picture so much better than anything else I got. I love the bold lines created by the light coming through the beams up above & the fact that it looks like he's almost sliding to the bottom of the picture. I'm so happy I could come away with a picture that I love for this assignment b/c I was close to settling for something far less than stellar.



And in case the above picture doesn't count(?) (I'm seriously confused by this concept.), I'll add another for safe measure.

  6. Kudos to you for taking your camera, I'm still trying to get comfortable lugging mine around in public places. I don't like to draw attention to myself, so it's something I'm working on. I do love the first photo, and I think it's a great representation of light pockets, fabulous job!
