Dark Arts. A Night Photography Collection.
During the winter months, when darkness falls early, and days can be cold, grey, and grim I get my colour fix by going out at night- not every night- that would turn it into mere routine- just occasionally, on still clear nights... or when the opportunity arises.
So this is a winter collection- at night. Lock 27 here- a waterside pub on the Forth and Clyde Canal. Great reflections.
Speaking of which, I've been enjoying a recent series on Yesterday UK TV Chanel--- Secrets of The Bible.
The episode last night featured the black African tribe from Zimbabwe called the Lemba people who always believed they were Jewish descendants of one of the lost tribes of Israel. Although interested, most white historians took this claim with a pinch of salt without proof until DNA testing and a maverick lone archeologist traced their journey overland and found it to be genuine. Traced through the middle east and Senna. Oral ancient history can be remarkably accurate for passing on important information even after many centuries and another possible find was discovered recently by following the exact descriptions in the Bible leading to.... The City of Sodom....and Gomorrah....or the probable location anyway, which is still being excavated and examined by experts. And a rational reason why they ended so abruptly. It was not due to sinful behaviour exactly, just very bad luck. Fascinating stuff. I learned a lot. The discovery of Sodom is still disputed at present so time will tell if it's the real deal
Pond ice reflections. The end.
