Just a quick snap of this view from work before heading home today.
Waking to darkness and heading home in the dark is the trademark of winter days with little light. Darkness blankets us as we scurry about, changing how we live. We hurry home to the light and warmth of our homes, longing for brighter days that evoke childhood memories of playing outside long past sunset and forgetting to come in for dinner.
Winter reminds us the light is at the end of the tunnel, hope through difficult times will get us through. Without darkness, there is no light.
P.S. Can you see the camera’s reflection?
Day and night have various between stages of light and dark. Twilight is the only one that occurs twice, when the sun is below the horizon before sunrise and after sunset. The blue hour occurs during twilight when the sun is quite low and its light gives off a blue hue. This stage of light is favored by photographers and artists alike.
I took some decent shots of downtown buildings at dusk, but had the most fun playing with two-second exposures on the highway as my husband drove us home. This was my favorite, and I especially love how the natural light of the moon shines brighter than the city lights.
Working five days a week may present a challenge! I promise to not post 260 photos of where I work, although many will probably be NEAR where I work.
Today’s photo was a creative attempt from inside the car, as a passenger, during the 30 minute drive home from work. It turned into a little game to see if I could capture anything interesting at all on my phone and I like the abstract I’ve chosen for day two.
Tomorrow is Saturday and I’ll have my camera.
This is me, at my desk waiting for my husband to pick me up and take me home. The reflection shows the city lights of downtown Portland seemingly point to a framed photo in the hall nearest my desk.
This is also 1 of 365. I was planning to post January 1, 2017. But why wait?
