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.

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.
