Chasing the Light

I've been spending lots of time taking care of my home and helping my parents out lately.  I haven't taken a lot of pictures, but over the weekend I noticed the evening light.  I quickly ran inside to grab my camera to capture a slice of it, and as fast as I made it inside and back out, the light was all but gone.  I was literally chasing the light.  I was running for this one, and although I didn't get the image I had in mind, it still turned out beautiful.  Chasing the light is a good way to spend my time with or without my camera in hand.  It helps me create the prettiest pictures, and finding the light in my day to day life always ensures that I'm in the right places doing the right things.  It's a picture I love living in, and I'm learning to train my eye to find the light more often.  It's where the happiness is.

Beautiful, and I completely agree! Lately I am so drawn to the play of light and shadows and silhouettes.

This is breath-taking! It's funny because I just read a chapter in Ann Voskamp's book, A Thousand Gifts, and she literally grabs he camera and runs outside to chase the light. Good things always come from chasing the light.
