A third beach exploration, but this time I’m caught intwined in the textures that light creates on nature. Shadows form between rocks. There are small patches of orange sand which are surrounded longer stretches of colder, dark grey sand (the absence of light.) The oceans surface glitters and shifts with movement, while its rippling reflection is mirrored on the shallow sea floor. The sea becomes alive with the sun, details within the mysterious water are suddenly more visible, with small fish flitting back and forth quickly, while seaweed slowly sways. This past month, I have thought endlessly about the inherent and magical ability of light, and the role it plays within the photographic image. Without light, images of course would cease to exist, similar to the way in which the human eye cannot see objects in lights absence.
