Magical living room light

I was able to observe very late this afternoon some gorgeous light streaming into my living room where everyone was playing. Unfortunately, I was not able to get photos in that light where the actual human subjects were all cooperative and not making super weird faces. This is the reason why you might keep a little photography journal where you note some times and places in your day to day world where you see beautiful light, and then you can keep spending time there with your camera in hand in the hopes that eventually you will catch people not making super weird faces. The photo of Lida by herself is admittedly fine as far as her expression, although that was pretty much the only one.

Lauren - Oh my GOSH! You do have gorgeous light! My living room has the best afternoon light too, but I don’t have the cute kids sitting in it (beagle?) to photograph. Love that last one of Triumphant Gus!

Nadya - I know what you mean about about noting the time of light! I thought about the same thing just a few days ago. We have our living room’s window looking at the West. So you can imagine that there is NO light there at all. But I noticed one thing — light do visits this room somewhere about the afternoon! It’s when it reflects from windows of the house that stands near to our’s.
And I love that last photo with Gus standing on the game board! It is so about what these little ones do!!
