Joyful Majesty In Black and White
I had to post both images because…
I loved the cheerfulness of the yellow and the feeling of joy it brought me, especially in the warm glow of the sun. The black and white, however, moved me as well and I loved the contrast.
Am I Different To You?

I love light. That is why I love photography. I look for it everywhere and when I see it I have to capture it. Today’s images are the perfect example. As we were eating dinner on the porch the other evening I noticed the light on the Dahlias. I had to capture it. The title of the post is based on the fact that in the Victorian language of flowers Dahlia’s represent, or mean, dignity. I think after seeing the images you’ll agree, that indeed, the light is demonstrating dignity. Enjoy!

“Photography” is derived from the Greek words photos (“light”) and graphein (“to draw or paint”).
Painting with Light
“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” – Ansel Adams
The “painting” effect of this image was achieved by motion while the shutter was wide open in addition to over exposing the subject. The subject in this image is a bouquet of pink and yellow Alstroemeria (Lilies).
I recently submitted a few images for inclusion in a photography exhibit at the Bucks County Project Gallery, a local gallery for photographic art. The theme of the exhibit was Bucks County food and farms. The image below titled “County Fair” is one of my images selected for inclusion in the exhibit.
The milk bottles in the images above are from Penn View Farm. A local dairy that sells milk in glass bottles. The milk is hormone free and the best I’ve ever had.
