Light with a Pop of Color

So interesting to analyze the way light affects our perceptions. Consider this swing.  In the direct sunlight, it looks like a bright spot of happiness, enticing you to come sit, swing and bask in the warmth of the rising sun.

   
From the back side of the swing, the mood is very different. The swing looks as if it’s been overpowered by the tree’s shadows, yet hopeful that the sun will rise and rescue it from the dark. 

 Light has long been used to symbolize life and warmth. The absence of light – death. As I look at the photos, I can almost feel the warmth on my face in the first, and a chill come over me in the second. Yet, each picture is the same tree, same swing and same sun from different viewpoints. 

It occurs to me that these pictures could easily be used to describe people. Some prefer to face the day, head on, fully optimistic.  Others prefer to hide in the shadows, fearful of stepping away from protective cover.  Each has the same potential but chooses to view life in a different “light”.
