The results are intriguing, informative and at times surprising
My son and I were crossing a street through an alley in Al Diyafah - Dubai, when I saw the bicycle and immediately noticed that the blowing air current, along with the excess cargo of flattened and stacked cardboard boxes was making the front wheel rise up from the ground slightly and then descend once the wind subsided.
I instinctively knew that something was about to go down - or up. So I asked my son to 'SLO' down: Stop, Look, and Observe, while I got my camera ready.
And we waited. We were standing there for like, 20 seconds when this guy walks in frame....
Then it happens: The front wheel goes up, the guy is baffled, and my son and I are standing there barely holding ourselves from rolling on the floor, laughing! It was a good day.
P.S. We helped him with his bicycle afterwards.
Good and Bad LightIs there really such a thing as good or bad light?Good and Bad Light by =Ikarisou

There is gorgeous light, little light, strange light, dim light, golden light, light so wonderful it makes your whole body hurt, scary light, difficult light, blueish light, morning light, evening light, light at night, light that feels like lead, the sulfuric-yellowish light shortly before a hailstorm, mixed light, the rose tinted light of Eos, the greek goddess of dawn, soft light and hard light, harsh light, artificial light, autumn light, light that tickles you in the morning and wakes you up, maybe there's even ugly light.
Isn't referring to different light situations as good or bad really an approach that keeps you from tackling challenges? One that stops you from trying to find something that makes all kinds of different light work for you? One that stops you from experimenting with light? One that might prevent you from taking that one frame with extraordinary light? One that keeps you from learning to love all sorts of light?
