The sun’s reflection off a mirrored building shines directly into the office, and it is blinding. Some of us jokingly wonder if it’s the rapture and why we are still here. I exaggerated the brightness in Photoshop for a more dramatic effect. I think the spot on the right is a reflection on the window of something that is behind me.
I was home sick most of this week and didn’t feel like using the camera and spending the time to review, edit, and post each day. Instead, I used my camera phone and posted directly to tookapic.com. It was my first time using the filter feature on the iPhone camera, and the photos turned out more interesting than I expected. I really like them!
Interstitial 105: Window Light. Sick in bed; happy for the light that comes through the window.
Interstitial 106: Dreamscape. Making use of the iPhone’s camera features for an interesting shot. The “process” filter creates a dreamy effect. I rather like it!
Interstitial 107: Hey. Driving home I saw a pocket of fog up ahead so I drove past my street and pulled over to investigate. The trees in the background on the left are part of the Scouter Mountain Nature Park I often visit. You have to pass this field to get there and are sometimes greeted by horses.
Interstitial 108: Blooming Barberry. The barberry bush buds are opening and there’s so many more tiny leaves!
These dried hydrangea petals serve as a reminder of the importance of transition, transformation, and change; providing a brief moment of reflection on what was and what is to come. My boyfriend, Klaus the Pug, joined me in deep thought.

Bokeh or mythological air spirits? I love the magical quality of this shot, taken through a window with raindrops on it. I think photography can be boiled down to chasing the light to capture magical moments.
P.S. 90 consecutive days y’all.
Evergreens and moss in the coastal ranges and valleys of the Pacific Northwest gift us with green throughout the winter. Green is home.
Yet another balcony shot at work, but incorporating the weekly theme of metal this time. Can you see the flower pattern right before where the sun is shining through?
I met with a small group of women today, each working on our own creative goals. Some of us terrified, and myself paralyzed, by what others may or may not think. Together, we’ll make each other stronger.
A very interesting sky on the way home today.
For millennia, the sun has embraced us in the morning and at night. Just think of all the people who have stood in awe as a sunset’s brilliance stretched above them. So many faces the sun has seen.
