This is a photo I took almost a month ago.
It is my submission for the weekly photo challenge.
The theme for this week is “Early Bird“.
I took this one morning for the purposes of sending to a friend.
It was early in the morning and on my way to the bus stop so there was little effort in getting the shot.
I like this photo for a few reasons.
Firstly, it was taken at 6:20 A.M.
Even though daylight saving time was still in effect, I found how dark it was to be surprising.
Secondly, it is one of the few times I’ve been happy to have used my phone to take a photo instead of my camera. The picture doesn’t look amazing but the light comes through in a really strong way that, whilst my camera does capture light strongly, it would appear differently.
Thirdly, I like how strong the contrast is between the light and dark. Whilst the light is strong, it only illuminates enough to reveal the edges of shapes.
Everything else is just beyond it.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
