Dim (One Word Photo Challenge-Eigengrau)



Dim Haiku (Eigengrau)

Darkness of nightfall
Squinting eyes for clarity
Grateful for first light

At first, I thought Eigengrau was just the color black. But, Jennifer Nichole Wells clarified the color as intrinsic grey, as defined above, for her One Word Photo Challenge this week. So, I started thinking about what I could photograph that suggested night and darkness. When I saw this lamp, it seemed like a good subject.

If you look at the bottom section of the picture, you can just see the outline of the lamp fixture against the dark landscape. I was inspired by Jennifer’s take on the challenge where you can just see the outlines of a familiar landscape in the darkness.

Have a good night, everybody!
