ranunculus shadow

 for light, shadow and some supermarket blooms, as the days grow a bit longer

For a fleeting moment we pause and note the sunlight on the sheets as we make the bed,  note the warm sun on our cup as we sip tea,  or note the fading light on the curtain as we enter the room.  And we let out a breath or sigh.  Pausing.

    • thanks, Diane. sometimes when its too cold and icy to get outside, I chase the light around my house.

    • thank you, Robert. I’m enjoying your photos, such a wonderful range of tones and wonderful texture.

  1. Beautiful, each and everyone. Your home is so lovely Susan. The light that enters through your windows, warm and inviting. I love that poem. Perfect for these lovelies…I must look her up.

  2. Beautiful shots. I love how you used of light in them. There’s always a peaceful and pleasant quality to your photos that I admire very much.

  3. Love how the curtains throw their flower pattern onto the chair back. Also, generally love the mood in your pictures, and I see you managed to get some ranunculi, too 🙂

  4. These peaceful moments captured in your photos give me reason to pause. They are a visual meditation for me. Thanks, Susan.💙🌹

  5. Your images inevitably lead me to take a deep breath and relax into them. Such peace and serenity is not captured by accident. It’s simply lovely to behold. Thank you for sharing.

  6. I’m very fond of the play of lace shadow on the chair back, and the blur in the second photo, Susan. This feels like the pause before Spring, too.
