New York | Light

Recently I caught myself looking at something and thinking, "The light is so beautiful there. I wish I could photograph someone there."  I once heard a friend say that we as photographers are chasers of light.  Until recently I didn't fully understand how that pertained to me.  Looking at the pictures I took today, I see it so clearly.  But I realize I chase after light in more than just the visual of light and shadow.  I seek the light within people... like a friend who talks with her hands, but takes a break from her excitement and rests them on her lap.  Or the light I seek in gaining knowledge in that which is unknown or foreign to me.  That is light to me.  And I look for it wherever I go.
