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!

Today’s moment was a happy glimpse of the sun beaming through the trees on an otherwise wet and dreary winter day. It wasn’t warm, but it certainly put a smile on my face.
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?
