Without Darkness There is No Light

Without Darkness There is No Light

Late afternoon light streams through the stained glass window of a tiny chapel on the outskirts of Port au Prince, Haiti. Perhaps a metaphor of Haiti herself.

In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.

  1. You have beautifully captured the moment here.

  2. Beautiful capture as always Ron. We can hope that Haiti will get a few extra rays of light this year. They’ve had quite a struggle, haven’t they.

    1. Thanks Tina. Yes, one can hope, though I am not optimistic.

  3. A really stunning image, Ron. The light is phenomenal, and I really love this quote. Sylvia

    1. Thank you so much Sylvia. The quote seemed apt, especially for Haiti.
