Shadow and Light – Danny Ashkenasi (from the musical Speakeasy)
Today I will share some photos I have taken over the past few months that feature a play of light and shadow in a diverse variety. I’ll complement these images with songs about shadow and light, the first one actually called “Shadow and Light”, a song from my musical Speakeasy that I hadn’t yet shared on this blog before. A few of these pictures and tracks have been featured on Notes from a Composer before, a few will be included in an upcoming post. But most are unique to this post.
Above and to the right, twilight shadow and light reflections on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn near the Atlantic Mall (I particularly like how the actual clouds and blue skies align with the reflection of other clouds and sky in the building facade in the picture to the right).
Speaking of twilight in Brooklyn:
Twilight and Shadow – Howard Shore (LOTR)
Manhattan bubbles breaking the light from overcast skies:
This Manhattan shot – a favorite of mine – was featured in a recent post:
Invisible Light – Scissor Sisters
Above, below and to the side, shadow and light play at home, above in my living room, to the side the Benzoni head I’ve previously featured, and below a praying mantis that hung out on the ceiling of the vestibule of our building.
The Shadow – Bernard Herrman (Psycho)
Light and shadow play with the Captain America statue by Brooklyn’s Barclay Center.
Shining Light – Annie Lennox
Still in Brooklyn, these shots are a sneak peak at an upcoming post…
Shadows of the Night – Pat Benatar
The next five pictures were taken in the BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) lobby in a post “La La Land” swoon:
Color and Light – Stephen Sondheim (from Sunday in the Park with George)
Above and below, examples from the Brazil series:
Ray of Light – Madonna
Finally some play of light and shadow on a waterfall in Amazonas, Brazil. These pictures didn’t make it into the Brazil series, but if they had, they would have snuck into this “episode”:
Ed took these shots of the water pooling near the waterfall:
