A little while ago I was experimenting with candle light against a black background. Not such easy task, and I deleted many, many, many photos. However it’s a good learning process for a hobby photographer. The lightning of this photo is also totally wrong. Nevertheless I hold on to this one . Why ? Why keep a photo you can not use at all?
Well, somehow this photo reminds me of the transience of life.
The unexpected cold candle light, the rose already fading due to long exposure to the warmth of the lights.
After seeing my post , Sarah wrote this beautiful poem:
The Candle and the Rose
My eyes have seen the glorious growth
of rose from bud to bloom,
The silken petals cradled
by leaves of emerald green,
And as is true with every earthly thing,
its time is brief in flowering,
a second of perfection.
Like a candle in the darkness,
its glow ethereal, a flicker
of a light divine,
a bud, a bloom,
