Focusing on Life - Week 43


In The Shadows
I don't know if it is the time of year with daylight fading into night earlier or the fog my brain is in from the cold medicine but I have been very aware of changes in light lately and how shadows tend to tell a story. This week capture what you find intriguing about light and shadows.


There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. 
~~ Rod Serling ~~

As human beings we are limited and only able to perceive the three spatial dimensions (length, width and height), plus time as the fourth dimension.

But what lies in the empty spaces and dark corners of our universe? What mysteries are hidden between the light and the shadow?

Physicists, theologians, scientists and theorists of all kinds have been pondering and speculating on these questions since recorded history and beyond. What do you think or believe? For that matter, what do I think or believe?


The only story this coffee mug is telling me right now is that it's empty and needs to be filled. *smile*

  1. My favorite time of day ... morning coffee ... coffee gets carried around by me all day. About once a week I have to find all my lost coffee cups! Hopefully before they start growing mold! That second picture is great!

    1. The second photo is simply a negative of the first. I used Photoshop to create the effect.

  6. I used to love that show - the guy with the third arm. The woman who served the roast she used to kill her husband. Great show.

  10. I started noticing how the play of light and shadows were changing way back in August. I always look forward to that change because I hate summer and adore autumn and winter. Love your photo, great job.
