Thankful November 19th: Light

I know it may seem obvious and a bit silly to say, but I am so thankful for light, and not just as a photographer. The other evening, we had the most glorious sunset. I was driving and couldn’t stop and grab a picture of it. Sometimes it’s nice to just enjoy the beauty and not worry about angles and f-stops and aperture. C.S. Lewis once wrote “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

Tower of London from Execution HillThe Tower of London was built in 1066 AD. And while it has endured well over the centuries, I picked this picture because of the portion of Hadrian’s Wall (on the left of the picture). The wall was started in 122 AD and the parts of it that are still standing are some of the most visited tourist sites in Northern England.
