Backlit


Sunlit: through a window in the members' cafe, Tate Britain.



Moonlit: painting of his studio (1826) by Carl Gustav Carus, from a current exhibition I very much wish I could see at the New York Metropolitan Museum.  Carus was new to me. Lots of darkness and 'throughness' (windows, archways) in his work, more mysterious than menacing, which is interesting in the light of Jung's crediting him as one of the first physicians to evoke the role of the unconscious.

is it because they shared forenames that Jung felt an affinity (unconscious)?

These are beautiful. I have not as yet figured out how to take backlit photos that look like anything.
