Each week WordPress provides a photo challenge, that you can participate in even if you only have a cell phone with a camera (it’s clear a camera is good, too). Looking for the challenge this week, it turned out WordPress provided the challenge to show “glow.”
The idea is to play with the idea of glow, such as taking a picture just after sunrise, or before sunset, the latter being what I did.
I took a photo of a plaza just as the sky was glowing red and the clouds were disappearing into the night. The stoplight in the street was red, meaning the cars headed that direction were stopped and waiting for the light to change. One single vehicle had made the light and can be seen proceeding in the direction from which I’d walked.
Some of the details in the photo I took are lost to the disappearing light, which adds mystery, I think, to the picture, and makes it a little more interesting. The “glow” challenge gave me the idea for the first time to try capturing with the camera a location that was glowing from sunset.
I hope you like it. If you take part in the weekly photo challenges (each Wednesday), maybe I’ll see what you shot. That would be nice.
What’s more, the WordPress Daily Prompt today is the word “release.” It is too complicated an idea to explore, but I think again how it is to be expressive, particularly on WordPress, where an inclusive atmosphere is intended, is quite a positive release, I’d argue, to let emotions that are within come to the surface. Human beings are creatures of expression.
Thanks for reading, and good luck with your blogging!
