More light and shadow photos from 2015. Look closely -- do you see the small dewdrop in the shadow of the largest one? The shadow of seeds flying away from the dandelion head -- and the seeds? All four dragonfly wings? The shadow of a leaf on a leaf? The "shadow" of a leaf long since gone?
Continuing this retrospective of 2015, with the Light and Shadow theme, I'm very glad to be enjoying these memories of spring and summer sunshine in the warmth of my study. There was sunshine today, but the high was under 10 degrees Fahrenheit -- not the best temperature for camera work.
As I looked through photos from last year, I found a number of them coming together under a theme of Light and Shadow. Here are some from last January and February.
One last round on this retrospective of 2015 images that are Catching the Light, with photos from November and December -- a leaf from the Japanese maple at the peak of color, just before the leaves fell; a milkweed seed; maple keys; red-tail hawk; Advent wreath.
Early fall -- September sunrise on the Three Sisters in Canmore, Alberta, flowers from the St. Louis Botanical Garden, and an Indiana leaf, catching the light.
Part two on this retrospective of photos from 2015 -- catching the light in Seattle, Harrisonburg, and Goshen during May and June.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
Mary Oliver in "Sometimes"
I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
