In the Dark a little Match can be a bright flame…

Bright was a hard topic. I first thought about doing kind of an alien abduction theme and just blast lots of light through a doorframe to get a silhouette shot, but I couldn’t find a door that I could frame dead center and also I did that Silhouette thing yesterday. So I kept thinking about the term brightness. What defines brightness? Bright is a lot of light. A bright sunny day, a bright and intense spotlight, but a little match can also be bright, when there is no other light around… doesn’t a little light in the black night sometimes mean so much more to us then the all the sunny days together?
