Playing with light

I had fun for an hour or so yesterday, playing with light. Manipulating photons, so to speak. The sun was coming through our bedroom window and it inspired me to play with some still lifes. I have a hinged sheet of white foamcore that I put down for the backgound. I set up my tripod, my camera, and got some subjects out. I love playing with pears, because their unusual shape creates lovely and whimsical shadows. One of my favorite images is this one, where only the shadows cast on the background are the subject. It looks almost like a Moray eel mouth, too.
We need to play more... it infuses our imagination and our enthusiasm for life. In this case, I played with light and had a great time.
