Happy Happy New Year !

This is the time of year when we think and dream about our days ahead.  What we will create, what we want to change, what we would like more of....etc.  Starting my posts this year with an something I have been wanting to explore more:  night photography.  When the sun sets I shy away from taking any more photos.  Golden hour is over and I'm pretty much done.

 I realize this is primarily because I am not sure on how to deal with the lack of light - it is a bit of a mystery to me.  I enjoy figuring out those types of things (I think of them as puzzles) once I commit to taking it on and getting to the bottom of it.  It is kind of fun to fumble and make mistake after mistake (you should see my last roll of film I developed).  So, I will in 2015 make more night imagery somehow.  This undertaking is definitely inspired by Brassai and Atget - it is their nocturnes that pushed me to want to try ♡

Wishing you a bright year full of fun new things, interesting puzzles you enjoy piecing together and plenty of smiles + love!
