#230 Day and Night


Can you photograph both day and night in a single photograph?

At dusk, the day slowly slips away into the shadows. It's still a little like daytime of course, because the sky is still bright enough to witness the beauty of creation. Yet it's also already nighttime because every minute is now darker than the last, dragging our spirits along with it, until the night consumes us all. And if you brought your camera along for such a moment, when day turns into night, yes it's possible to catch them both in a single photograph, while locked in a momentous tug-o-war, until one is completely vanquished, even if just for a little while. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Don't stop shooting just because the fading light and color. The wavelengths of light at the tail-end of dusk can wildly surprise: from simmering crimsons, to dashes of violet, and finally a stately purple. See one soon.)

But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
