Who would ever think the weedy, rusted fence in our backyard, looking out over a refinery could be like stained glass?
Since I started taking a photograph every day of my life, I will never take light for granted.
The more I learn to work with it, the more in awe I am of it’s creation.
I find that any phrase about light, be it photography centered or not, takes on a deeper meaning to me now.

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. – John 1:4-5
Knowledge is love and light and vision – Helen Keller

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. – unknown
There’s a certain slant of light,
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of cathedral tunes.
A human being is only breath and shadow- Sophocles
(Yeah, I looked this one up.)
