The Day 10 assignment in WordPress’ Photo 101 encouraged us to share an image of some mystery — a photo that raises questions, that has some inherent ambiguity. And to use light in a creative way, if possible.
I thought back to my Day 9 sunrise images, and recalled an outtake that might fit the bill for Day 10. The frozen pond in my neighborhood is used quite often for “shinny,” or pickup pond hockey. Sometimes things get left behind.
Is this hockey stick broken, and discarded because it’s of no use? Is that other item in the snow a shard from the handle? Or is the stick intact? (And is a distraught future Wayne Gretzky missing a prized possession?) . . . I don’t know how deep the snow is at that spot, but we’ve certainly had plenty of it this winter.
Should I stroll down to the pond to see if the stick is still there? Or should I just leave it a mystery?
