We were sitting at the dinner table, just the kids and I.
Daddy was off playing baseball,
In his absence our son was happily sitting in his seat.
As we were talking he looked out the window distracted by the sun that was shining through blinding his eyes.
And when I looked at him I saw light.
In a new way.
It specked over him and where I usually get frustrated with uneven light I sat there mesmerized by the way it hit his face.
By the way the light found it’s way in pushing between the slats….
And so started a quest for me to search out the rest of the light that was desperate to find it’s way into our home in that early evening hour.
And found it I did.
Light and shadows.
A new appreciation for the way they are so beautifully blended.
Lightness and darkness.
These images were taken quickly around my house between dinner and bedtime. They are slightly edited but for the most part they are pretty true to the straight out of camera shots, and I think that’s what I might love the most about them.
