April 16-22, 2013
Looking back on this week’s photos, as with Week 47 of the 365 Photo Project, I unintentionally continued my sun study.
As I said in last week’s post, the sun is a big deal as it comes back in Alaska, and as I look at these posts, I realize there was a renewed energy I was feeling with the sun’s return and longer days. I can’t say I was terribly creative or trying to find new things to shoot. However, I was trying to push myself to find new ways to shoot the light in my otherwise ordinary home and surroundings.
Tuesday we ate hamburgers and made pomme frites. And I love ketchup. Here’s our bottle of ketchup in the sunlight on our dining room table. And now nearly two months later, we are still out of ketchup.
Wednesday was shot in the morning before work in the kitchen. As I’ve mentioned, our house faces east west. The kitchen get the eastern light. This morning, the wine glasses had a lovely light on them. They were drying on the dish towels.
On Thursday, I shot the yard in front of the house. I’ve taken many shots here, but I liked the shadow the cherry tree was making on the snow and the golden light. This time of year the light and shadows are different than earlier shots I’ve taken.
On the way to work on Friday morning. The light was up and beaming right at the Atwood and ConocoPhillips buildings. It was blinding as we were driving down the street. Once Evan dropped me at my office, I walked back to shoot the two buildings from different angles. This was the shot I liked the best.
As the sun sets, we get the most beautiful light in our entire front room. It just fills the room with golden light. This shot on Saturday was my attempt to capture a little of that.
On Sunday, I shot Evan’s glasses on the dining room talbot reflecting the light.
On Monday, I took two shots, even though one would have been fine. As you can see if you’ve been following this blog at all, the sun is moving further north as it sets. I took a wide shot to show the colors of the sunset and then a closer one to get a more abstracted view.
Next week is some thing of a potpourri of shots.
