"Thinking about Wynn Bullock today: 'Not form rock, not object rock, but the light that IS the rock.'"

I'm feeling stupid.

What the heck does this mean, please??

Oh. Not sure why there is no title to this.

I had it as...

"Rocks, Stones, Pebbles IV"

Gave you a (modified) title, but can't enlighten you about the quotation.

I’m guessing that we’ll figure it out…. Eventually.

Or ... could confuse things even more. :-P Was interesting, but don't see the connection to this challenge at all?

“Light is one of the most beautiful, mystical…expressions of nature. It is greater than any object it reveals.” Wynn Bullock.

It always has been my mantra. Wynn Bullock was a fine teacher and hugely admired by the likes of Adams, Weston, Uelsmann, I could go on and on. His core gestalt was that only the light creates form, shape, solidity. From a photographer's perspective, without light there is nothing. We need to open ourselves to let the light reveal the essence of the thing we are contemplating.

"Waiting for the light" is what we do (or ought to do) :-)
