Scattered Light

Since I started taking a photograph every day of my life, I will never take light for granted.
The more I learn to work with it, the more in awe I am of it's creation.
I find that any phrase about light, be it photography centered or not, takes on a deeper  meaning to me now.  

Let there be light. - Genesis 1:3

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. - John 1:4-5

 Knowledge is love and light and vision - Helen Keller
Come on Baby, light my fire. - Jim Morrison

(day 95)

Carol Anne, don't go into the light! - Poltergeist

 I am thrown against the sky.  I am raining down in pieces.  I am scattering like light. - Suzanne Vega
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. - unknown

 There's a certain slant of light, 
Winter afternoons-
That oppresses, like the Heft 
Of cathedral tunes. 
-Emily Dickinson

 A human being is only breath and shadow- Sophocles
(Yeah, I looked this one up.)
Who would ever think the weedy, rusted fence in our backyard, looking out over a refinery could be like stained glass?


  1. this is beautiful! the photos and the words.

  2. Just goes to show you can find beauty in anything if you really look. Even from a weedy, rusted fence. Lovely light.

  3. Thanks Jennifer and Gail! I think the biggest lesson I've learned through 365 is to find beauty everywhere, even if it is just a few square inches.
