While looking through some pictures of a recent outing I noticed this picture. At first, I thought, oh, geez, it’s blurry and overly bright. Then I took a second look and thought, wow, that’s actually kind of cool. I love the light, and while I wish I had the know how to tone it down, I like it as is, un-edited.
See how my daughter’s hand is resting on the ladder in preparation to climb out of the kiva? The intense look on her face is pretty cool too.
I love paintings that use light a la Vermeer and while this is far (far, far) from a masterpiece, it makes me happy to look at it.
