A Photo a Week Challenge: Light and Dark

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Light and Dark.

The prompt got me thinking about some of the nighttime photos from my film archives that I started digitising last winter.

January Squares: Green-light

This is my day 24 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge and although it’s hyphenated it isn’t one of my made up hyphenated words.

To green-ligh means giving something the go ahead. Most commonly used in T.V. and film production it comes from green traffic lights giving vehicles the go ahead. This green-light is on the junction of Berford Street and William Street in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.

January Squares: Flashlight

A bit of a cheat, as a Brit I’ve always called them torches but if you say torch to someone in North America they think of mobs with pitchforks and flaming torches.

For day nine of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge I went with a flashlight.

This is a small flashlight clipped to the strap of a camera bag. I keep one clipped to the strap of each of the bags I use regularly. They’re useful for finding my way when heading out an hour or so before sunrise. Then when I get to a location in the dark I can unclip it from the bag if I need to check something in the dark.
