Sometimes I walk by something and it just hits me: THAT is beautiful! I have to run and get my camera to keep the light that shined on my sheets, fresh off the line. This was evening, with sunset shining through the window where the kitchen table sits.
Sometimes the brilliant sunrise shines in on my little buffet...and I run again for that Canon.
Yes, sometimes things just shine: ordinary things, shine in a magical way because they're beautiful and simple.
I'm busier than a one-armed paper-hanger and I'll have to catch you up soon, but for today, just a beautiful collection (I think so anyway!) of scenery around the house on an ordinary day, all of these scenes held magic for me.
Sometimes, it's the way the light hits a certain object or collection of objects: autumn light is one of the most beautifully golden things there is.
Sometimes, I want to freeze something to hold onto it, for instance the geranium pair just outside the front window....this scene will soon be replaced by blowing leaves, gray skies and brown, empty crop fields.
I want to pull that geranium shot up this winter, along about February, and just savor it again.
The tomatoes were just brilliant and had me running for my camera, as the morning sun shone on them one Saturday morning as I rolled up my sleeves to get busy on canning a bushel of tomatoes.
I also want to remember THOSE on a blustery February day.
And also this...
There's magic in our homes, and we are fortunate to be able to see it, don't you think?
