Let the sun shine in
Sunday was sunny for the first time in a long time. The frost, built up from several days of freezing fog, was dropping off the trees. Little bits of white pelted me as I walked in the park. The light shined through everything, including the smiles of many winter-weary Spokanites who were outside that afternoon.
Can you see the little streaks of white on the left? That's the tumbling frost.
As always, I followed the light, looking for the most miraculous moment of illumination, trying to coax my camera to catch a bit of magic. My methodology is: click the shutter often, and hope that I get lucky. Later, as I sort through the pictures on the computer, I know I have found something if my eyes open a little wider, if I sit forward in my seat to take a closer look. The photo below made me lean a little closer to the screen today.
I hope you enjoy it, too.
