All About Light: Week 37

All About Light is a weekly photography project by two friends who met virtually while working on their respective Project 365s in 2013-2014. We quickly realized that we enjoyed each other’s photos and always looked forward to seeing what the other one shared. Since we both have a love for the genre of street photography, we found ourselves capturing intriguing signage in unexpected places and laughed about who might get the next best shot of a crazy sign. After finishing our Project 365, we decided to take on a weekly project to study the use of light and learn about ways to improve our photography by focusing on different light sources. Each month we will focus on a different source of light in our photos. We hope you enjoy what we capture as we learn all about light.

The beautiful door of this historic building caught my eye on a recent work trip. The vibrant green leaves framing the pathway to the doorway make it seem almost mysterious and magical.

Beth of Beth Moses Photography and I became friends in 2013, while sharing our photos in a large group of Project 365ers online. As the year went on, we realized how much we had in common and even had a friendly competition of shooting odd signage and tagging the other one with “Your turn!”. Besides our shared interest in photographing everyday moments, we also share a passion for coffee and the south. I’m so glad I get to continue to share my thoughts on photography with Beth, and now, this project, too. Now, go see what Beth is sharing this week: Capitol.

Perfect Timing: Week 34

Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we’re from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.

Last week was a busy one, but a good one. After a weekend full of meetings, I was able to get out and enjoy a couple of hours to myself before heading home from my business trip. The neighborhood where I was hanging out has the most beautiful homes. Doors are one of my favorite things to photograph. The surrounding bricks and lovely window boxes really add to the charm of this beautiful area.

Mary of Moe-Digger Photography and I became friends in college after we realized how much we had in common. We each grew up with three brothers, played sports and studied history, languages and cultures. I still remember our SLR cameras and our love for shooting with film. We have shared many wonderful experiences together over the years and have supported each other through some of the most significant moments in our adult lives. I am excited to take on this project with her. Check out Mary’s Perfect Timing photo for this week, too: Morning Visitor.

You know that moment when you wake up in a new place and it takes you a moment to realize where you are? This happens to me sometimes when I travel. This morning, we woke up in a new place, but I didn’t have that disoriented feeling at all. It felt right. We woke up today in our new home.

We have new digs. After many moves for school and work and six years of marriage, we finally bought our first home. We couldn’t be more excited. Now, to get to work!

Another moment in the morning when I passed through one of the rooms of our home and saw this beautiful light casting shadows and golden hues. And my love for natural light continues… What’s the best room for natural light in your home?

Perfect Timing: Week 31

We share a love for languages and travel, and although we’re from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life.

This week we had to run an errand a few towns away from us, and on our way home, we saw a lot of smoke ahead. Firetrucks were zooming by on the freeway to get to the source of the fire, and as we were passing, we saw flames spreading through the brush off the shoulder. We immediately thought that it was a wildfire, because let’s face it, we’re in a severe drought here in CA. Instead, we were surprised to see this car on fire and a couple of firemen doing their best to put it out. While the brush around it was also catching fire, we could tell they’d gotten to the flaming car very soon after the accident. I only hope they had a lot of help coming to assist them in putting out the rest of it that was spreading up the hillside and that the driver and any passengers were able to get out of the car in time. Whenever we pass an accident of some sort, I always think of how blessed we are to not have been involved.

Mornings like these are the best kind. No place to be right away and the sun is beaming in the window, casting a lovely golden light into my living room. I captured this moment this weekend and just had to savor the light. We have many, many a sunny day here, but I don’t always get the chance to capture it quite like this.
