Wordless Wednesday: Eating light

Does it seem dim out to you, I ask The Husband. Because it seems dim to me.

We both squint up at the early evening sky with its waning sunlight. Clear and blue with only a few long, wispy clouds.

The light is different, I say.

I guess we’ll be noticing the days getting shorter now, says The Husband. It’s that time of year.

And it is late, really. Almost eight o’clock before I can pull myself together for the weekly Watch Holly Grow photo shoot. I’ve been liking this time of day because the summer light is softer and more filtered. None of the harsh shadows you get from the mid-day sun.

I was hoping that fancy 40mm pancake lens would eat enough of the light so I wouldn’t have to resort to the on-camera flash. Talk about harsh shadows now.

And I got lucky here. Just enough light to capture that sassy look on Holly’s face.

Say cheese, Holly, I say

Squirrel!, says Holly.
