Dark is the Night

I prefer to think that it is just a passing winter blues, and not me. The mood at the moment is dark, dark as dark is December in the dark east and dark as the night. Darkness is what I have, so I may as well try to use it…and I did, but only to find that it can only get better.

The inspiration I found in the bright sun, the sun in the photographs by Henry Wessel, my latest obsession after a visit to the Tate in London (lucky me!). I still know very little of his work, but there was something about his collection of ‘Incidents’ that I loved but I didn’t know why at the moment, a bit of googling revealed that it was the sun light, what else!

Bright bright bright.

Mr Wessel also walks at night and takes pictures in the neighborhood.
