    Wow Arlene! You took an interesting subject and really set the mood in this with just the right amount of darkness! Brilliant work!!

  • Hi Dave! Thanks-a-million. There was a spot of light coming thru a small window. I was mostly trying to get the right exposure + a clear shot, hand held.

    I love the shadows Arlene :)

  • Thanx Stacy. I found this one when I was cleaning images off the memory card. I don’t know how I missed it when I took it in August.

    Excellent! What an intriguing photo. The colors, textures, go superbly with the lighting/darkness. Beautiful Arlene.

  • Thanx Jeffery! I guess it works since New Salem is a working 1820’s demonstration town. Natural light hand held, lots of tries to get it!
    Your sunflower looks lovely in my basement stair way by-the -way!
