Glass Shadow

The glass vase that holds my sea glass cast a strange shadow on the wall.

I noticed this as I sat in my living room, glancing up to admire my collection.

It is a tiny moment, a detail I might have missed had I not looked up at that instant. It is what my photography is all about: capturing those little bits of time, paying attention to the way the light plays before the moment is gone.

Shadows in the Morning

It helps to keep your eyes open.

Letting the dogs out in the morning, this is the image that greeted me. The sunlight streaming into the room created this brief shadow on the white-painted door.

The simple lace curtain was transformed into a work of art.

Had I been more distracted, or less awake (or slept in!), I might not have seen this dark image waiting to be captured.

But the moment was right, and so I did.
