Evening light is beautiful in “The Library” as the living room is now affectionately called. The bookcases are coming along, the corner hutch is filled, and the mantel is decorated for summer.
But today is all about reading, ethereal light and tea…
Victoria is my favorite magazine of all times ever since my sister-in-law Linnea left a few issues at my mother and father’s new home then in the early 1990’s. I came to visit and found something I didn’t even know I was looking for ~ ethereal photography in a magazine fresh and light and utterly beautiful.
The Library bathed in sunlight is the best place for reading in the late afternoon with its ethereal lighting. Beautiful light ~ a bit overblown but the light changes rapidly as the sun continues its descent beyond the oaks and fence and neighboring home outside.
Capturing a bit of the essence of Victoria’s now retired photographer Toshi Otsuki was the ideal for me…
Just beyond crickets are beginning their evening song. The robins snack at the birdfeeder just hung beyond the windows and Mr. Squirrel scoots around picking up fallen treats along the ground.
Peaceful and airy and dressed in white ~ the Golden Hour has come and one must capture it as best one can…
“Take a break,” the tea table calls to me.
“Come read a bit and let your heart be free!”
Pulling up a chair I do sit for a bit thumbing and revisiting
Sip by sip the tiredness washes away on the dust particles floating by in the waning light.
To be lost and forgotten in a world of one’s imagination…
