Looking for Light


© Sharon Brown Christopher

I always seem to be looking for light, and I enjoy tremendously working photographically with light. So, there was no hesitation on my part when a friend invited me to join her for a couple of hours of walking through the recent China Light exhibit on the Tennessee state fair grounds.

Designed for the enjoyment of the whole family, it was a modest presentation of Chinese objects and shapes, and the light, amplified by the night sky, was an irresistible lure for this photographer.

The time became for me a meditative stroll in which the eyes of my heart began to see while my mind and camera recorded.

The light, sometimes coupled with camera movement and intentional blur, brought both surprise and satisfaction as I viewed results through the screen on the back of my camera.

The question to be asked of these images is not so much “What is it?” as it is “What feelings does the image evoke?”

It was a delightful summer’s evening.  How I enjoy looking for light!
