During times like this, is can seem as though there is no light. I believe that we need opposition in all things. Without bitter, we can’t savor sweetness. Without pain, we can’t comprehend bliss. Without dark, we can’t understand light. Contrast in art is important to help create substance and focus. We smoked some corn on the cob on our Traeger, and I loved how the husks turned out. I put them in a stock pot on my stove to capture this image. I don’t know what I enjoyed more: photographing or eating them. (Just kidding. They tasted amazing!)
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO FEATURING THE CONTRAST OF DARK AND LIGHT.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

So true about the contrast – but we can’t live without the light!
A very challenging theme. Thanks for your encouragement
Great light but hope you didn’t eat the husks. 🙂
Thanks and no we didn’t. 😊
My youngest son loves corn. Great photo of the contrasting. I need to practice this some more I think 😊
