Embracing The Light...In Decor And Photography

When I wake up in the morning and come out for my first cup of coffee I am always in awe of the morning light that pours into our living room...

Photography is all about the light first and foremost and the big bay window facing East is the perfect place to shoot photos at that time of day...
Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography. – George Eastman...
 I'm striving for that in photography and in the way that I live...
Peonies in the light filled room. Sadly they are all gone now for the season...
Perhaps it makes peonies just a bit more special, as their showcase is so short...
They will be replaced by roses here, as flowers breathe life and light into the mostly white elegant decor that I strive for...
With a bit of glitz that reflects light so nicely...
Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. – Imogen Cunningham

Have a happy and safe 4th of July Holiday weekend my friends! I'll be seeing you from the beach...

I just started learning photography last summer and learned very quickly how important, better yet imperative the lighting is in order to reflect what you see & are trying to capture on film.

You're work always inspires me....and of course your eye for detail in your art & in decorating is unparalleled. Beautiful!!

That back of our home faces east. With a sunroom with 3 walls of windows. Perfect for me to sit and paint to my hearts desire. Light.... it's so important.
Happy 4th to you and yours Janet.

Nature always does Show Out every single day. Light spilling into a room is always the perfect accent.
