First light through lines of night
photo: Scott McLean

I like photos that are a bit different. It's intriguing to not know precisely what the photographer was thinking. Maybe there is some symbolism, or a statement being made?

I'm not always sure what my own photos mean. The photo (shown above) gives me the impression sunrise and night are battling for supremacy. And the sun will win, unless the clouds come along to swallow up the light and turn the day cloudy and gray. Other than that, it's a common sunrise for this part of Oregon, USA.

In this moment of balance between darkness and light, which do you feel is strongest, and why?

i love to take pix for the moment i wish to remember, at least, at that moment. lol. I will be the only one understand what that photo meant most of the time and sometimes even not.

I'll always wish the light would be the one strongest. Have u ever tried to stand at the beach site catching the sunrise and shout damn loud something like: "Darkness Go Away!!" may see u as someone crazy but it feels really good, at least, at that moment! =)

p.s Sorry for all gramma or other mistakes in my writing. I am trying to catch up. =)

Hello there..

Well, in reply to the question that you posted: "In this moment of balance between darkness and light, which do you feel is strongest, and why?"

My comment is that, light is strongest. Well, as you can see, in our modern world, whenever we're in darkness, i.e. at night, we can always use a torch or lightbuld etc, and tadah! it will be super bright once again. But when you're in the light, to make it super black like the night, it is pretty hard, yeah? Try hiding under the covers and make it seem as dark as night.. Nope, not gonna work, aye?

So yeah. Just felt that it is kinda fun to play around wondering which is strongest. So there you go, my little comment. =)
