moments of light

Today has been a perfectly gloomy, cool day. I long for days like today, like most long for the sun and warmth. However, I am clearly addicted to light and shadows, as you all can tell from one of my current series. It is days like today that make me love the little moments of light even more though. And as winter slowly creeps up on us, and the light becomes a different kind of beautiful, I find myself being even more attentive to these moments.

light.

Time for another dump of images from my phone of the light around me. These first images are from my apartment, work, and of course Scott’s house.

The other evening we were sitting on the couch together and all of a sudden he said, “you should shoot that.” Just ten minutes earlier I had photographed the light on the same wall, but looking up then I noticed it had completely changed since I last looked. We sat and watched it for a bit, partly while I was shooting, and partly just enjoying it. I am so glad my boyfriend is understanding of (and even appreciates) my love of light. We decided a time-lapse of that light would be amazing, so expect that soon as well. For now, here are the images of that evening playing out on one wall.

344/366 – Wind

*Saturday, January 5

Saturday I morning I packed up my car and headed out to my brother’s house on the far side of South Dakota. It was incredibly windy, making driving in some parts quite difficult. It was such a bizarre sensation driving through these patches of blowing snow; it felt like I was floating on top of a cloud.
