Patti sends us searching light and shadow…
She reminds us that the experts tell us to focus on the light in photography, but, that it’s not just about the light. It’s both light and shadow, which are two sides of the same coin.
Tolstoy tells us the truth…
All the variety, all the charm, all the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.
– Leo Tolstoy
In life have a friend that is like a mirror and shadow; mirror doesn’t lie and shadow never leaves.
The eye is always caught by light, but shadows have more to say
– Gregory Maguire
Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.
There is strong shadow where there is much light.
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Last weekend’s hike was an explosion in light and shadow, the vivid greens of newborn spring and the joy of new life coming.
Last week, Tina inspired us to explore The Rule of Thirds, which lead to many interesting discussions about our preferences in composing a shot. Next week, it’s my (Leya’s) turn to host, so stay safe and be kind until then!

Edward Abbey, whom you quoted, was a ”character”:
Ever are shadows and light
A photographer’s delight.
Such lovely images
Happy you like them!
Wonderful collection of light and shadow, AC! My favorite is that blue hour silhouette, and that dog standing on the trail makes me want to enjoy that same walk.
Thank you, John! Just sent you an e- mail. Please read it!
Wow… All are beautifully captured, AC! Another level of light and shadow through you lens.
❤️ Thank you, Amy!
Beautifl selection of pictures, A-C, especially like the one of your ”Baby” standing on the wooded path!
Ah, Sylvia, he is sometimes cooperative!
Your images and quotes are wonderful. I love the one of you dog standing on the trail.
Thank you, Beth, Milo is sometimes good at waiting!
You have a knack for seeing the light amongst the dark. I love your choices this week, both words and images.
Thank you, Jude! Maybe that is what I am always looking for. Your comment made me happy❤️
Ann-Christine your photos and quotes are beautiful!
Thank you, Aletta!
Hi, AC. I think your post is stunning–both in words and photos. Just wonderful. Inspired! It is so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you. 😀❤️❤️
Patti, sincerely grateful for your comment! I loved this theme, maybe that is what you feel.
You are very welcome, AC. Your post was very uplifting. 😀❤️😀.
I am happy with that!
Simply ‘thank you’ ! I am not wordsmith enough to have the right to add words . . .
Oh, but you are! Your comments are the most poetic and loved ones!
These are beautiful photos, and beautiful quotes! My favorite is photo # 3 of the sunset. And I also love the dog photo!!
Thank you, Lisa! Both photos contain my best friends!
Awww, that is so sweet! 💗
Ann – Christine these photos are magical and the quotes to go with them are perfect. What a fabulous response to the challenge!!
Thank you so much, Anne! A lovely comment!
Beautiful photos. I love that glow on the house in the photo of the village street
Thank you, a mysterious one…
Great selections. LOVE that first one. I should have gone inside when I was there. I had no idea!
Are you leading L-A this week Leya? I don’t see your post.
John, my computer has crashed, John swapped with me!
Lovely photos–all of them! I especially like the sunset (or sunrise?) photo; beautiful colors.
Thank you, Dawn! The sunset blue hour with a dear friend of mine is a favourite memory.
There’s so much going on in that first photo…in a good way. It would make an amazing puzzle. I also really liked the photo with whichever of your dogs is in it and the one with the tiny flower on the saucer. But all lovely and perfect for the theme.
Thank you, Janet! Milo is a good poser, and yes, a puzzle! The tiny, withered flower is one of my favourite photos!
Beautiful gallery Ann-Christine, my favourite is the street scene 🙂
Madrid Atocha is amazing with the rainforest in the railway station
Thanks, Brian. I could sit there in the station forever. Watching people and their pets, listening to the rainforest.. That street in Georgia was a favourite too.
Beautiful photos that illustrate light and shadow. I like the way each introductory quote fits the image. A great deal of thought went into this post.
Thank you Anne, some themes suit us better than others, don’t they!
Great set, A C- but I especially like that first image, such brilliant light and the detail! I have been to that Madrid old station, but didn’t think so much about the images I was taking in those days! I also love Totti? Milo?? In the forest sunlight, framed by shadow
I love the Atosha too, and it is Milo!
All simply gorgeous!
Thank you, happy you liked them!
These photos are simply divine 😊
Thank you so very much for your positive comment!
Very beautiful images all A-C. I agree with Jo, the light on the soup tureen with the purple flower is magical, as is the light the shines on the building at the end of the dark street. Beautiful post with wonderful quotes too.
Thank you so much, Tina!
A thoughtful one, Ann-Christine. I love the quotes and the photos. Where is that first one, please? Especially love the light on the water and that planter with the single flower.
Thank you, Jo – you mean the building? It’s the old railwaystation in Madrid. Remade into a green oasis for people to walk, sit, read, eat and drink.
I assumed a railway station but couldn’t identify it, hon. Love the depth of that photo.
