Capturing the Light

A pretty chandelier caught my eye while out shopping with my family.  It was perfect for the master bedroom – glittery glass pendants and shiny, embossed brass.

The circular patterns caught my eye first; the shadows cast across my ceiling, second.

A simple addition (a sale item, too!) quickly became an unexpected inspiration to capture with my camera:  light as art.

Water on My Window

While washing dishes, I noticed the way the sunlight glistened off the melting frost on the window.

The dishes could wait.

I grabbed my camera and while the dishwater cooled, I captured the light.  Playing around with the focus and the aperture settings, I was able to create an abstract composition of a few drops of water.

Even the tiniest detail can become the subject of a photograph.
