Half light Glenelg, Adelaide

Sunbeams and cobwebs

Dawn and dusk are said to be the photographer’s and cinematographer’s favourite luminant conditions. Not so for Adelaide based Magnum photographer Trent Parke who likes to shoot in the brutal hashness of the the midday sun.

I am no photographer but the overpowering daytime radiance tricked my iPhone into this shot of a Glenelg colonial mansion, sunbeams and cobwebs amidst a half lit ambience not visible to the naked eye, curiously reminiscent of Great Expectations.

For the Daily Post weekly photo challenge evanescent.
