Light Shines in Darkness

This is image was made on a recent trip to the Eastern State Penitentiary. For those who don’t always get this kind of image, the power of it is in the contrast of the shaft of light coming in to the cell and the darkness and decay found within the cell. There is a sense of silence and isolation, which for me speaks of where God meets us: in the inner darkness of our being, when help seems absent. The image was made with my Canon 20D, and a Canon 18-55mm lens. Focal length was 38mm, aperture of 8, exposure time of 1/6 second, and ISO of 200.

    (You know it’s good when I’m not offended by the use of multiple exclamation points!)

    I think I might want a print of this.

    Heh… this looks like it could be the cover of one of my “dark, disturbed, and offensive” music groups. Kudos on the picture… it looks sweet.

    Ditto on the wanting a print…

    Thanks, dude. I hadn’t thought about the “dark, disturbed, and offensive” thing, but I see it now. And can do on the print.
