I have always been very interested in capturing moments of beautiful natural light. The way that light reflects off of things, shines through and wraps around, casting beautifully unique shadows and ripples of light, is fascinating to me. Lately I seem to be even more drawn (borderline obsessed perhaps) to these things, and often stop in the middle of whatever I am doing to capture these little moments.
The first two are from my phone, because that is what I consistently have easily available when these moments happen. And, unfortunately I accidentally cleared off some of my favorite images (or I expected them to be) from my SD card before transferring them to my computer. I’m hoping to re-shoot a similar thing soon, but for now here are some of my recently documented “moments of light” to share with you.
The past few days have been crazy busy; grad school finally feels like grad school.

Wednesday afternoon I met up with a fellow blogger, Laurie, who happens to live in Manhattan as well. Laurie runs an adorable bed and breakfast here, called The Morning Star. We walked to a restaurant downtown called The Chef Cafe, which was delicious. Fluffy pancakes with pecan dark rum syrup, bananas, and pecans; it was a great way to start my day.

Friday we woke up extremely early to have our engagement pictures done at sunrise 🙂 We had some incredible lighting conditions so it was totally worth it.
Afterwards we went to a great little place in Lexington for an early birthday breakfast. Fresh fruit, bacon, and beignets. yum.
I unfortunately forgot my camera in the rush to get ready though, so I didn’t get any pictures. And the rest of the day was spent napping and meeting with friends for dinner, so I was stuck with this instagram picture yet again.
Yum. My parents discovered this pumpkin pancake mix, and have sent me a few boxes, and I must say I love it. It is so delicious. Well Whitney and I made some the other day and had tons of left overs, so this afternoon after class I thought I would treat myself to a nice breakfast (well, lunch really). I had bought strawberries yesterday, and cut up a ton of them to put on my pumpkin pancakes. It was incredible.
I love when I am doing something mundane and notice that it would make for a cool picture. I was making some breakfast, and thought some egg shell shots could be fun. I may upload some others that I liked later on.
