A Book and the Light

Happy Monday to you!!
I'll start with the person who's name was drawn for the book Home Run. Mr. H obliged me and drew a name out of the pot.  I'll be sending the book to Beth. Beth, if you'll shoot me an email with your name and address, I'll get it in the mail to you. I hope you enjoy the read.
Now on to the light!
I don't seem to be doing as much reading lately, I've been outside the past few days. The rain has stopped for a while. I'm not complaining because I understand we're going to have a very dry summer. We need all the rain we can get before then. But, on the other hand it felt good to see a few days filled with light. I've had fun playing with back lighting.

Back lighting brings out lots of details.
It makes things look translucent.

Sometimes you get pretty bokeh in the background.
Sometimes, when it's on the right thing (like my grandson) it makes you smile and your heart swell with love!
Thank you, Aaron, for posing for me!
I hope you're getting a little touch of sunlight!

Our job is to record,
each in his own way,
this world of light and shadow
and time that will never come again
exactly as it is today

  1. WOW your back lighting photos are outstanding! What an adorable little boy, posing just for you. Love the poem.

    Although the Sun is shinning, it's still to cold for this time of year. Hoping Spring will arrive soon in Holland.

  2. Your backlighting is beautiful! When it works, it's magic, isn't it? And Aaron ... oh, what a heartbreaker he's going to be!

  3. I am hoping that I am the Beth that you mean. Thank you!! I will send my mailing address along to you.
    Your back lighting photos are beautiful.

  10. as you know...i am a bit of a back-light junkie. :) these are such wonderful shots. and that sweet little face is just the icing on the cake.

  11. That may be one of the best - certainly most interesting - bee photos I've ever seen. And your grandson is adorable. I love that tiny rim of light at the edge of his face.
