out of the shadows by Yvonne Roberts

My “inner animal” – this image has become a signature piece for me. Photography has helped me appreciate the beauty in everyday things …the tendris of a wild vine climbing a power pole, the delicate texture of cracking paint on an old building – I’ve learned to see the intrinsic beauty in chaos. Through photography, I feel as though I have come out of my own creative darkness … out of the shadows.
A small white kitten emerges from the shadows into a patch of sunlight. When Nadia came home to live with us, I had joked that I just wanted a new kitty so I could put her down in the middle of the floor and take pictures of her. I was only halfway joking. I have taken Nadia’s picture dozens of times since this was taken 9-1-07.

Hello…I’m Yvonne. I’m a graphic designer who discovered a love for photography when my hubby gave me a point-and-shoot back in 2003. Several cameras and lenses later, I’m now using a Nikon D300. I have been showing my work locally (Lebanon, PA) and am always looking for new exhibition opportunities. I hope you enjoy my work. Please feel free to leave comments. I also love hearing about photo-op hidden treasures in the Central PA area.

    Beautiful! You captured the mood here. An instant favorite for me.

  • Thanks Marjorie. This is why I love digital. I shot a dozen other shot of her in roughly the same spot, slightly different angles, but this was the only one that “clicked.” :-)
