I have signed up for Blogging U.’s Photography 101 course, which requires all participants to post a photo a day from November 3 to November 28. A theme is assigned daily, which one then interprets, shoots and posts all within a 24-hour timeframe.
Today’s assignment is to capture an image that shows warmth.
The sun played hide and seek with me for most of the day. I had a shot in mind that would make use of the side lighting brought about by the late afternoon. But, no such luck.
I tried to improvise using an indoor shot (at night) using small flash. But the minimal look of the image I had imagined would prove not to be too simple (or safe). And so I decided to sleep it off, in the hope that the early morning would gift me with radiant rays of sunlight. Apparently, the sun decided to sleep in a cozy blanket of clouds for the day.
A frantic search through the archives would have been the next order of things when I remembered that we still made use of a clay stove for cooking rice. And as my fortunes had clearly turned, the glowing charcoal embers gave me warmth in more ways than one.
