09.16.2021 Streetlamp of Desire

Apologies to Mr. Williams.  Often in the early morning as I walk out to bring in the daily paper, I look at the sky to see what might be in the offing.  Some mornings hint at fog and others a clear sky with a myriad stars. On this day there was just a hint of moisture in the air which got me thinking of a foggy landscape around North Quabbin.  I made this image before hopping in the car.

Canon 5D Mark II and Zeiss 50mm.

    I love how atmospheric this is! When taking the photo, were you in a garden looking out over your driveway?

    This brought to mind Robert Frost’s “Acquainted With the Night”. It’s one of my favorites among what I think of as his city poems.

    • Thanks! That’s a poem I was not “acquainted” with. You could say that it fits me with my early rising. I think that it’s the best part of the day. One seemingly has the world to one’s self.

    The photo gives me the distinct feeling of the approaching fall. Great shot in the pre-dawn darkness with only the street light providing some light!

  5. Without your title I’d have imagined this as the sun rising on some preternaturally dark morning.

    Good image and good title. Shooting into the light, without positioning it so that a tree would hide its direct impact, worked really well.

    • My whole concept with the starburst. Sometimes that is enhanced if it’s the sun peeking from behind a tree, cutting down the glare, and allowing the rays to shine. But with the thin fog I wanted the whole thing. Thanks, Gary.
