Noon Day Sun

For photography, light makes all the difference, and the light of the noon day sun isn't the kind that most photographers prefer. It can wash out colors, cast disfiguring shadows, force people's faces into squinty contortions, and bring about other unpleasant effects.

But I liked the shadows it cast on this shutter hook. Which, by the way, is a name I made up just now because I don't know its proper name or if it even has one. Anyone out there know for sure?


  1. Can't help you with a name for the hook. Do like the complementary shades. And especially like the line-up of corners.

  2. Nice--the shadow, the colors, your words.

    I once found the name for a specific type of what you called shutter hook, if you'd like to see my post of Oct. 13, 2009.

  3. oooh, thank you Dina! I'm going to look it up.

  4. Oh, but sorry, our name won't apply to yours.
