If you stop photographing things, and start to photograph light, you will amaze yourself.I've meant to dedicate a whole roll of film to this quote (preferably black and white, don't you think?), but in the meantime I've been experimenting with Bishop Nikon, my Nikon D90. (My Orthodox friends will get the joke.) Over Christmas I tried photographing light--or the absence of light--just to get a feel for it. I don't know if I'm doing it right, but I am sort of enjoying the outcome. These photos just have a different feel to them. I put them all in sepia so the focus is on light and shadow instead of color.

|I like the way crystal catches light. I don't like the way it reflects my camera's big schnozz dead-center.|
|This is Chris's favorite. He likes all the lines of light and shadow the ramada casts in winter.|
|This one is my favorite. It's got a nice simplicity to it.|
