map and light



This afternoon I was on my way out the door when I noticed the light and shadow making its own path along the map on the wall.

There was something about the thought of light, shadow, and a map showing the way that gave me pause. It seemed to be a message.

Among other things, I love the idea that the light lies across the mountains.

Good stuff Billie...

I love your pictures of day to day life that are far from normal...

I want what you're smoking!!

LOL, Jason - no you don't! :)

This one came out of sheer desperation for something more... ethereal... after a trying situation this weekend. (which, if you can believe this, was borne out of a lack of boundaries - how literal can my image be?)

Hope your holiday time is good - I would bet some new photos on your end as well!

Looking at the play of the sun on your map like that, makes me think of a picture within a picture.

And if anyone wants to inhale any smoke, just wait till I make grilled cheese sandwiches. I practically burn down the place.

Hi, L.

I don't dare leave the kitchen when I'm cooking - I will get off on a tangent and forget it's even on.

Shara! So good to see you - you've been away for a good long while now.

Thanks for the comment - I'm going over to melismata to see if you're back there too...

This is a delightful photo.

Thanks - I've become fascinated with the shadows made by foliage on walls, inside and out.
