Sneaky Light

I have been reading this book of photography that talks about light. The book says the human eye naturally looks towards the part of a picture that has the most light.  

Well, this makes sense to me. 

So yesterday when I was picking flowers in front of my house, Liz put them in her bike basket.  The bike just happened to be in a lot of sunlight and looked so pretty sitting there. Like any good blogger/photographer wanna be, I grabbed my camera and took several shots of this pretty little scene.   

But! here's the thing!!! 

I can't tell if these pictures are any good or not because SOMEONE . . .by that I mean my teenage kids . . sneak on the computer late at night . . . They turn the computer light way down so their dad and I can't see they are up.  


You know, it's not that I mind the sneaking so much. I kind of expect that. . .the thing I mind is they don't seem to be smart enough to turn the computer light back to a normal light.  

~ Then we might never know. ~ 

 AND The most frustrating part is: I don't know how to adjust the light on the computer and they won't show me. Because of course, they were never up turning down the light in the first place. 



  1. Ah, the sneaky teen years...I remember them with such fondness! And I love the flowers in the basket!

  2. Having a camera on hand for moments such as these is such fun. What a great capture.

  3. Gotta love teenagers, right? LOL! Great black and white shot though. Thanks for linking up and playing along each week. Good luck in the contest!

  4. You have to just love those teen's. :D
    Fun shots.

  5. I like photography but am not patient enough to read instructions and other articles that could boost my skill hehehe. Thanks for sharing this!

    LOL!!!! Funny post!

    The pictures are great!

  9. LOL sounds like my house that is why we locked the computer w/passwords & if anyone wants to get one they have to tell someone to get on to put the password. That is an awesome pic thought :)

  10. Ooh, I love bikes and I think that is a Superb Shot! Be glad your kids are not quite devious enough to turn the light back up :) (A google search should give you some easy-to-follow instructions for changing the light.)

  11. Sweet factoid, and great photos.

  12. teens...moments of complete brilliance quickly followed by moments of complete stupidity.

  13. I agree with the book author and actually think the photo is a good example rregardless of monitor setting. The axoom still stands.

  14. Ahhhhh... the beautiful flowers in the Barbie bike.... LOVE this!! Gorgeous captures, So glad you had your camera handy, & the processing is LOVELY!!

    REALLLLLY hope you join us for Finagle a Foto Soon.
