A certain slant of light

October 4, 2013

I’m cherishing every drop of sun now as the days shorten faster and faster. (Three photo blogs to recommend: Vassilis‘ breathtaking portraits from Athens and beyond; Joanna‘s Visual Diary of everyday life in Berlin and elsewhere; Bridget’s Deer Circus of home-y, lovely vintage-vibe snapshots.)



There’s a certain slant of light
“When it comes, the landscape listens,
Shadows hold their breath;
When it goes, ’tis like the distance
On the look of death.” (Emily Dickinson)

    Being able to enjoy the simple things is seeing and living heaven on earth. Thank you!

      oh me too! technically it’s “a certain slant of light / on winter afternoons”– but I thought it was great for fall afternoons as well 😀
