The Light, It’s All About The Light

It’s the end of October and I am still dreaming of rain. The ground is parched and the sky seems to have forgotten how to create clouds. Autumn has decided to take its ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ to some other place this year, leaving us with a season that is long past its sell-by date.

But, despite everything, I have come to appreciate the sunlight. Because when you walk around with a camera attached to your hip, you start to notice things that would otherwise be taken for granted. Like the nuances of the light. Its ephemeral hues. From the blinding, harsh brightness of mid-day; to the golden light of mid-afternoon and the rosy glow of sunset. I have come to know them all, to look out for that time of day when the light will be …, well, just right. Just picture-perfect right.

Suddenly,it almost becomes a game. A game of looking for sunlight and shadows; of seeking unexpected patterns on walls; of brightness and darkness. It’s a game of telling a story without words.

  2. Loree, this was such a perfect post. I am going through a shift in my relationship to light moving from the desert to a misty place. Your images are like food for my soul. Thank you.

  5. I love sun light as everything looks so much prettier, and my mood is in a better stage. Our gray days are coming and staying for quite a while.

  7. Although I like fall and rainy, stormy days, I'm missing the sunshine of summer and the warmth. Temps are beginning to fluctuate and you're never quite sure what the weather holds. Wishing you a lovely week. xoxo, B
