Whiteboarding future greatness

I really like this photo that Kelsey shared on Flickr. What I like about this are the shadows, and the contrasts on the whiteboard.



I like the shadows on the wall behind these candlesticks. This was very much a “spur of the moment” photo.

There are so many opportunities to capture little moments in our homes. We are so familiar with our spaces that it’s easy to stop seeing these moments when they happen. This time I managed not to ignore what is otherwise a very common sight in our home, these candlesticks.

Musings about that Autumn feeling

We had a long, hot summer this year (much like last year). After teasing us for a couple weeks, that Autumn feeling is setting in. The days are cooler and after a sort of “warm wave”, it looks like the temperatures are starting to drop as Winter approaches.

My favourite seasons are Spring and Autumn. I’m not a big fan of the extremes although I don’t mind Winter that much, certainly not compared to Summer. I went for a walk in my neighbourhood last weekend with my camera to try and capture some of that Autumn feeling.

The change to Autumn

I love the fallen leaves and the cool air that usually accompany them. There is something about these leaves and the blossoms that herald Spring’s arrival that invigorate me.

I also love the longer shadows this time of year. I’m not sure if they are actually longer than other times of the year but it seems that way. It’s probably more because the days are so much shorter so by the time I head out with my camera, the sun is already pretty low.

Of course, this is also the time of the year we haul out all out winter gear ahead of the cold weather that is slowly making its way to Israel. The one downside is travelling a little heavier for a few months but I don’t mind that too much.
