And no, it’s not my photo — though I dearly wish it were.  It’s a pro’s, and visitors of their blog are not only encouraged to share their favorite among a group of photos; they may even end up owning a canvas print version thereof.

I’m not just posting the image here to fulfill the conditions of the photographer’s Christmas Giveaway, however.  To me, it comes as the perfect visual response to Grim’s “Ray of Light” post — the blazing light of the sun breaking through a mass of dark, sharp-edged blades (never mind that those are actually leaves and it’s only the photographer’s art that makes them look this way in the first place).  A symbol of hope, as only bright light can be, almost archetypal in its language.  And lest I go on waxing poetically, I’ll shut up now … Anyway, I really, really wanted to share this image, and I’m very glad I’m officially allowed to do so.

An Alphabet of My Likes and Dislikes: “Z”

This is the final post belonging to a new blogging project — the title is pretty much self-explanatory, I think; the project’s introductory post can be found HERE.  Credit for the idea: BeetleyPete. As always, the only thing linking the two items mentioned in this post in my mind is that they both start with […]
