Bible 27/365

I'm keeping with the religious theme again today.  Here is a shot of an antique German bible from the 1800's that I bought for Kim a few years ago.  I love the metal clasps, and how the light shines through them. 

The word "photography" literally means drawing with light.  Light and shadows are key elements to making powerful images.  I've seen perfect scenes before, and returned with a camera on multiple days only to find that the light just wasn't the same.  It's a great argument for always carrying a camera with you.  You may not get a second chance at the image.
