Picture of the Day - September 6, 2009

"Into the light"

Photo in which a black and white subject bursts into a world of color.
Photo and narrative by Gordon Brugman.                  (Click on the photo for a larger view)

This is an experiment in which a black and white subject "escapes" into the world of color. I wanted to create an image that summed up the feelings of discovery and freedom I experience when I head out with my camera to capture the world around me.

I'll be grateful until the day I die for having been given the opportunity to learn photography. It has taught me so much more than "exposure" and "composition". It has opened my eyes to details I never noticed before. It taught me there is beauty in all things if I give it a chance to express itself. And, most importantly, it taught me to look beyond the surface to the heart and soul of my subjects, for it is there that the real light that illuminates our world and our lives resides.

Thanks for letting me share my daily discoveries with all of you, and enjoy your daily walk in the light!

    Quite unusual, but I like it.
