Light is everything


A simple picture in a nice light . Without the sunlight creating those shadows, this photo would be plain and dead looking. It would be very boring and a picture without any "message". Light is everything in photography.

The word photography is derived from the Greek language: "phos" = light and "graphos" = writing. In translation that means: "writing with light".

Thank you for the light's medicine that heals from dark thoughts while viewing your photos.
Just at glimpse, your blog helped greatly in recovering from sorrow for the crash of the most of my computer programs.
That's hard to explain, but your photos have something magical.
I would edit the definition of the photography by adding to the "writing with light" the need to have the light's pen - that's not a camera but the light inside that makes all we touch the miracle of the light - your embody the path of the spirit in your works.
Your visit to my surly blogs could warm me. I would greatly appreciate your comments on my http://arthiker.wordpress.com/
