Shadows Have Objects

A few very high contrast shots from the Sun & Cloud

I think that part of the reason that I seem unable to stifle my aquisitive nature when it comes to acquiring new cameras (to be fair, if I don't use them a lot or love them tremendously, I find other homes for them), is that each camera literally forces me to see differently and view the world from a new perspective. The little digital Sun & Cloud is very much in that category.

Admittedly, my brain has definitely not been hitting on all cylinders lately, but the experience of shooting in such high contrast with the sun at such a low and blinding angle was almost disorienting. It was as if, for a brief moment with each shot, that I was inside that stark, high contrast monochrome world. I think it's more than a little ironic that I was on my way back from a brain scan, which was a thing of it's own. It's probably also relevant that I was more than a little sleep deprived, but yesterday's shots proved to be a very interesting and immersive experience.

I actually have two tranches of shots from yesterday, some high contrast but not as high contrast as these from my walk to the hospital and these from my journey back home. As usual with my digital shots, these are unmodified other than being resized for the blog.

Not to worry anyone, I'm feeling good and doing well!
