Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There be Light

This week’s photo challenge is light, specifically including the light source in the photo rather than outside of it.

To me, the lights in this scene represent either relief or fear of the unknown. Is that my friend coming down the trail or a stranger? It reminds me of a movie scene, maybe a war movie, in which the lights emerge first from the swirling dust of the dusk and there are a few apprehensive seconds before I know if they are enemy lights or friendly lights. And is that a weapon in his hand? But just behind the lights, breaking out of the dust now, is everything else–the ATV, the familiar shape of Jim, his cell phone, and, yes, our dogs running alongside the ATV. Relief and a smile overcome me.

    Randee, I can’t comment on 3:44, it won’t let me. But let me say what a great post, I’m so envious that you have such a wonderful life with your children. Ahhh, maybe someday…. You all are quite ‘photogenic’ and the smiles,,,,, could brighten any room. 🙂

      Oh, thanks for the kind words and for going to the trouble of commenting on a different post. I tried to fix the comment section on that post. Will you check it out for me?

      Yes, I have a pretty good life with the girls! I can’t complain; things could be much harder with two teenagers.

      “envious” and “maybe someday…” Another side of you!
