Light and dark are necessary both in photography and in life.
|that slash of light on the mountain is a snowcat grooming the ski trail.|
The contrast is what makes a photograph and a memory.
Wrapped in wings of light and dark, life takes flight.

I am the bird - the wings are mine.
Be present I tell myself.
Allow dark to enhance light and light to enhance dark.
I've been thinking about light and dark because I've been experimenting with night photos.
Bob's phone quit so I gave him my iPhone X, and I bought an 11Pro. I've been having some fun with the phone camera which has a night mode.
As is my nature, I extrapolate from the specific (the night photos) to the general (living a mindful life).
It amazes me how just a little bit of light can influence a vast darkness.
And how enveloping darkness can create a backdrop to showcase existing light.
Light and dark are my good things both in photography and in life.
Find One Good Thing today - take flight, be present.
