Yesterday sunshine spilled through my office window. I stood by the glass, drinking in vitamin D. (Recently I was told the sun is too far away, here in Wisconsin, to actually get vitamin D this time of year. I choose to ignore this information.) As a student of photography, I'm trained to look for light. But yesterday I looked with new eyes. And I wondered: can I turn my office wall into a playful screen for silhouettes? Why not? And the experiment began!
First, the meditative shot:
Then some play:
Followed by the artsy, dramatic photo:
Ending with the explorer view (that's actually not a spyglass, but a mallet for my Tibetan singing bowl):
This was much fun--both for the playfulness and the new way to view my office window. With beginner's mind, the world is filled with wonder. If I can inject that wonder into even a few moments of my day, then it's been a good day, indeed.
