In Pictures: When Darkness Meets the Light

Photography-Contrast-Darkness-Light-Lulu-Kitololo-2Over a decade ago, I came across a quote which has stayed in my memory since:

“Had I not fallen, I would not have arisen.
Had I not been subject to darkness, I could not have seen the light”
Midrash

The quote has special resonance for me now, given how good I feel about this year, in contrast to the last. Incidentally, as I look back through my Instagram feed from the past couple of months, there are quite a few photos that play with this contrast between darkness and light. Above and below are a few – catch the full story behind each, over on Instagram.
