Random items – Weekly Photo Challenge: Interesting Light

For this weeks challenge ‘Travelling at wits end’ asks us:

For this etude, look for the light first. Almost any subject can be enhanced if light is falling on it.

Well those of you who follow my blog know that most of the landscape shots I post make use of ‘interesting light, both natural and in post processing.  However for this challenge I wanted to move away from the landscape, so here is one of those oddball photos I took for just the very reason of how the light was falling, and the way the light streaming through the window was falling on the objects, and mixing with the light source from the room.  Without the light this would be a random boring flat shot, but the light made me stop, look, and shoot.

Channeled light – Sunday stills – Window

This week Hugh is hosting the Sunday stills challenge while Terri Webster Schrandt is on a blogging break.  And he asks:

Share with us your photos, stories, poetry, or thoughts, about a window. What do you see when looking in or out of it? Is it only you that can see it? Describe what’s there.

So here is a photo from the archives, taken on our 2012 trip to France, on our way home after playing at a festival out there.  The way light enters religious buildings has always inspired me, and you cannot help but feel a sense of awe when standing in a cathedral or large church watching how sunlight is channeled through windows to illuminate the architecture.
