Looking for Light

Successful photography is about knowing aperture and settings and cameras and lenses. But really, I think it's mostly about the light - looking at where it is coming from, going to, and highlighting. Or even where it isn't - what it's hiding or taking away. I think it's a big reason why I find photography as a hobby to be so calming - because I'm always composing shots in my head of feelings. And I'm always looking for the light.

I point this out, because it feels like things are a bit dark around my world lately. Sickness, death, sadness, cold wintry weather... And I really like thinking about the lighter things. Where there's hope. Sigh... I like looking for the light.
