Wednesday 19 January 2011: Two Kinds of Light
"There are two kinds of light - the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures"
- James Thurber
I snuck this shot off yesterday, with my camera sitting on the table. I was struck by the light and shade with one of our nurses by the window. Once I got it on the computer that evening I found I needed to lighten the shadows considerably - which made it all grainy looking, so I added an "antique" effect. Having done that I found it was my favourite pic from the day. I didn't want to post it however, until I had a chance to check she was ok with me doing so.
She is, so here 'tis.
