Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

You might think that I have completely lost interest in travelling and blogging, and that the only thing I do this day is photography. It is not quiet true: in fact, I am preparing something in my usual several-A4-pages format which I hope will inspire you as much as it did me. So stay tuned πŸ˜‰

Meanwhile, this week’s photo challenge isΒ Ambience. Ambience has much to do with light, an intangible substance which is essential to how a photograph comes out and pretty much defines its mood. And our mood, when we see it. Ever since I have upgraded my camera body to the one without an in-built flash (and we still call it an upgrade…), I keep on experimenting with natural light and how it changes throughout the day.

Here is a snap of Lisbon at golden hour, a short period of time that separates night from day and results in some amazing sun-kissed photos. When the day and the night are splitting the rights for the city, it comes out in all its glory: in the magic of the dusk, with imperfections of the day hidden in the tender shadow, and night starting lighting up its flames.
