Spring Light

Spring arrives in my lounge room
Day 56
By candle light we read...

I had such big plans for this weekend - some Spring gardening on the balcony, walks in the park, shopping and lots of photography.  Instead, I spent most of the weekend in bed, in the bathroom or mopping on the couch having eaten something a little 'iffy' on Friday. Blah!  But come Sunday afternoon I'm feeling much better and eating my favourite recovery food - dry biscuits and vegemite.   

Being sick has had one up-side in that I've had a chance to go through my photos and catch up on my 365 project.  The last two weeks or so I've begun to develop a bit of a love of capturing light and shadows.  Spring light in my living room, shadows on my baby blanket and the gentle light from a candle.  Hopefully with some longer daylight hours and a bit more sun there'll be some more in this series to come.

Hope you are feeling better. I love the lighter days spring brings - we've been having a few more sunny days after lots of overcast weather and it's been fun capturing the light and shadows. Looking forward to seeing more in your series.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear you weren't feeling well this weekend. There's nothing more frustrating than wanting to get things done but being unable to. But you did get these shots and they are stunning. There really is something special about spring light, isn't there?

Love that first shot of the light through the window...with hint of green plants outside. Hope you're feeling back to "fine" now.

Vegemite straight up on toast (no butter/marg) and grated apple - the ultimate recovery from tummy bug food. Learnt from our Nana.
