I love the way that the light casts the shadows across the greenery in this flower box. I love the way the shadows are gently laid across the deck quietly replicating the railing of the deck. I love the contrast of the greens created by the light and the lack thereof.
I think I love Monet because he was a Master at capturing light. He could see it and capture it and place it strategically onto canvas with a simple stick with bristles and oil with pigment. The best I can do is grab it, on occasion, with my camera. But, good lighting really makes me happy.
What makes you happy?
