Light

This is such a fun topic, and I'm sure we'll see some beautiful representations of "Light"

This is a medieval wrought iron candle sconce erected in The Cloisters (The Met) Museum in NYC.
It was hard to frame because it was so high up and surrounded by other objects/artifacts but its shadow was *so* beautiful.



It was a grey, overcast day but I had dark amber Rx sunglasses at the time and I was walking around going, "O my god, guys! They sky is SO BEAUTIFUL!" and everyone looked up at their grey, dreary day and it just looked...drab. However, MY view was AMAZING. This was me trying to capture both the drab reality and the high-contrast bursting orange light/shadow I was enjoying.

I really like the one through your sunglasses - that's amazing. The sconce is pretty neat too, with the shadow - it looks in the photo like there was a faint double shadow.
Thank you!

I think the double shadow is probably from the many tall, narrow medieval-style slit windows that ran along one side of that room. With how soft the light was, the strong shadow was eye-catching.

The Cloisters museum is a masterpiece, itself. Beautiful views, shapes, light, and shadow play in every room and is featured all over its gardens and park as well. An artist made that sconce, and another artist hung it in the right place to invite beautiful moments to OCCUR.
