That is how the Light gets in

“There is a crack in everything,

that is how the light gets in.”

(Leonard Cohen)

The above was indeed the case in the photo below:

pitchdark and yet with the little light that

came in through the cracks I was able to take this photo.

Had to put camera on tripod though! (boring!)

That is how the light gets in.

  1. dear Paula , I enjoyed this work a lot. It is a very good image and I took my time to look at . Content driven and technical not that easy to made. Maybe the lighting was helping you to present the spider webs. I believe they are essential to this work . You gave me a smile when you said ” tripod” vrs “boring”. I feel sometimes the same . Others are telling me they never shoot without it . But also for me a tripod will be used only when it is needed to do so. But your gain a good result with it.

    Get rid of the webs by letting the light enter ,cracks will be fading out , I am sure 🙂 , cheers bart

  2. I too try to hand-hold my shots as much as possible but I’m still glad that you used the tripod for this one.

    I think I also remember someone else using that Leonard Cohen song as inspiration for their shots.

Views through a lens - a personal viewpoint



Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
