Chasing Light

 

Hi there. It certainly has been awhile, hasn't it? Not a whole lot has happened between early January and now, but I can say that I've got a whole bunch of photographs I'd like to share with you all. As I've mentioned a couple of times in previous posts, it's been tough to find the words lately. Between work and sleep and social obligations, I've sort of lost touch with myself and with this blog and I'm rather frustrated by it. I can't even use the excuse, "I don't have time" because I do have the time – I simply refuse to use that time productively. 

Now that I've become truly settled here and have begun to actually live, I've started to vortex into a mildly anxious state. I'm not unhappy with my life at all, but I've gotten myself lost in the day to day routine and lately I'm starting to feel like I'm not doing anything meaningful. Now, while I could simply allow myself to wallow in that feeling, I think I'd rather try to change my outlook and put in an effort to dedicate my time to the things that matter to me. I think I'd rather chase the light.

The photos featured below are little more than a product of boredom on a long drive on the highway during the prelude to a snowstorm. Light trails are rather fun to capture because you have no idea how they'll turn out. In the age of digital photography, we can see how an image will turn out before we capture it. In my view, this is a fun way to directly interact with the images that I'm creating that creates a sort of spontaneity that you don't really experience with DSLRs. 

That's all I've got for you today, but I do hope to share a lot more of my world with you in the near future. Thank you all for your patience!
