Chiaroscuro (kiːˈɑːrə.ˈskʊroʊ, –ˈskjʊroʊ, Italian for light-dark) in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. Quote from Wikipedia
Chiaroscuro, a word I learnt from my father when I was very little. He was good with words. He introduced me to photography and was the voice of reason in my family. I miss him. Tomorrow would have been his birthday. This picture reminds me of him. Probably because it is a good example of chiaroscuro, which is a very good word. Thanks Dad for everything.
