Light and Shadows

Day and night are separated by a foot of time, though thin but they are always well regulated. But darkness is naughty; he often hides himself in a quiet corner, waits to show up whenever possible. This “hide and seek” game that brings surprises most of the times will never end in the jungle.

When light brightens us up, darkness, at the same time, never fails to challenge: the more we face brightness, the longer he casts himself on the other side.

On the contrary, Light simply surrenders herself totally when darkness rules.

My husband won't let me eat the BI DAN. He says too much chemicals.

I have to go to Australia and eat it with my bro.

I really like your pictures of darkness and light. I also like your philosophical thoughts on the interplay of light and shadows.

Wonderful photos showing the darkness, shadows and the light. I would hope darkness does not rule. I much prefer the light.

Darkness encroaches on us every day whether we want it or not. Luckily, daylight is not too far away.

Very philosophical, Rainfield..It's always interesting to "read" your brain at work.

SweetMemoirs said...

when darkness rules, look forward to the dawn where light slowly creeps in.

Rainfield, I love the way you see things, the contrast with darkness and light in a philosophical whisper between light and dark. Beautiful photos and inspirational post.

I like the golden light on the trees and the butterfly's long dramatic shadow.

The stars and the moon are winking in the dark so we won't lose our way..your images are terrific- wishing you a wonderful weekend:)

Amin said...

I agree with Tabib...

"Light simply surrenders herself totally when darkness rules." So true and we can only appreciate light through darkness.

I love those times of day when light and dark change places. It's the time most other people seem to avoid.

Frieda said...

That's a wonderful post.
I have to confess that I am always a little bit afraid of the dark...

I would be reluctant to be out in the dark but dawn would be nice, when the world is waking up. I am just a coward to trek in unknown places under cover of darkness.
