“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” Francis Bacon
For this challenge on – Shine – I’m going for a combination of natural shine to manufactured shine… It’s all in the light. I love how Bacon mentions that you need the presence of darkness to fully appreciate the power of light. That is true as we see the brightness in stronger relief when there is dark around it… The main photo highlights John Legend at a concert. I love the way it bathes him in brightness.
“I rise to taste the dawn, and find that love alone will shine today.” Ken Wilber
The center photo in this shot is of the setting sun over the Hudson River. I love the way the sun shines on the water, giving it a calm and peaceful glow… We all could use more of this peaceful glow of shine in our world.
“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” John Jakes
Whether we appreciate the shining sun or other forms of light, what stays true is that we all need to see some sunshine in our lives… And we can all agree that when we encourage others to shine, we shine even brighter.
Have a restful weekend!
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: – SHINE – Has something bright or reflective caught your eye in the moment? Share a photo of something you were able to explore a bit! What about you? Has the sunshine or any other light source caused you to stop because it’s highlighting something you didn’t notice before? Take a moment to check it out next time it happens and share what you see!
Positive Motivation Tip: We can shine when we let others shine
