Early Morning Striped Light, Then and Now

I’m sleeping in Maura’s bed this week, while I’m in Ohio, but she came in to dress for school this morning.

As she stood in front of the mirror, the early morning light came in through the blinds.

I remembered.

Somewhere on the blog,a few years ago, I’d captured a shot of Maura with the same striped light on her hair. At least I thought it was the same light.

Her bedroom has eastern exposure.

So I went and searched and found it. September 2013 see the second photo.

The stripes are thin white light in 2013.

The blinds must have been almost closed completely.

Opposites Light and Heavy


Opposites

light and heavy. Two red balls in Ohio.

The snow has melted now and I’m back in the Burgh but thought these two pics illustrated light and heavy.

Dramatic Light

and a groundhog I disturbed  while photographing the sign. The Monongahela River looked chilly.

Found Rainbow at Dawn

A found rainbow at dawn.

Right on my polka dot sheets. I’ve put away the flannel ones until next winter.

This week’s challenge is your place in the world.

My comfortable bed seemed a good place to start the day, finding my place in the world.

Lights in the Darkness

Flickering candle flames are mesmerizing. It’s hard to avert your eyes.

They cast a flattering light.

The sound of the strike of a wooden match. Tapers on a dinner table. The evening’s about to begin.

Lighting votives in the alcove of a church offers comfort when there’s really nothing else one can do.

Skinny candles on birthday cakesthe smell of wax and smoke after you make your wish, blow them out.

Everyone’s getting those battery operated, remote control, waxy but not real flame candles these days. No carbon marks on paint behind picture frames. No danger of setting the house afire.

I’ve got a set on the mantel right now. Need a load of double AAs. Make them glow again.

The wavering lights of true flames, hypnotize me.

Create shadows on the walls.

Light up a winter night.
