Hello and welcome! For those who have been following along on the Wordpress blog, welcome to the new blog (and website)! For those who are seeing my work for the first time, I hope you enjoy and stick around for more. I have been working on my website for some time now, and wanted my blog and website to be seamlessly connected, which means I will be transitioning my blog posts to be exclusively contained here.
I knew I wanted my blog connected to my website for some time, but felt like the first post should be something special. That qualification, plus the fact that I am extremely indecisive, meant that I just didn't post anything. But tonight, as I sit listening to the printer hum while I prepare for a committee meeting, I decided to bite the bullet and start making the transition.
I thought it might be appropriate for my first post here to be dedicated to one of the things I am most consistently photographing: light. I am enamored (some might say obsessed) by light (and I suppose also shadow). It is one of my favorite things in life. I am perfectly content sitting and watching the light filtered through leaves dancing on a wall, or watching the shadows move across a room as the sun sets. The way that light passes through and reflects off of glass and other objects fascinates me, and I don't think will ever cease to fascinate me. Most of the images of light are shot on my phone, since I have that with me all the time and these are always spontaneous moments. In fact, I have been known to stop in the middle of whatever I am doing (even somewhat time sensitive tasks, like cooking) just to capture the light that instant. So, with all that said, here are some of my most recent moments of light.
