Between Lenses 10 // Mornings

 photo BetweenLenses700x500_zps1c426413.png Last month I decided to hop on an amazing blog series called Between Lenses, hosted by Trina and Tara.  Their "goal for this collaboration is to capture and reflect upon life, to cultivate inspiration among one another and to connect with other bloggers." I was especially excited for this months theme, Mornings.

In my adult life I have come to discover that I am a morning person. Rather, I'm a person who loves the mornings.

The light trickling into the apartment.
The cool air that invites me to wrap myself in a blanket with a cup of tea.
The quiet entrance into a new day.
The ability to begin anew.
The feeling of abundant space.

A few of the reasons I dearly love mornings..... now onto my photograph!

Every photographer knows that early light is one of the best to shoot in. One morning I walked out my apartment door to this: beautiful, elegant, soft light dancing on the side of a wall. It took me all of two seconds to march back into my apartment, grab my camera, and snap a few shots. The soft light and quiet of the mornings invites us to turn inward and pay attention. And I love it!


  1. this is beautiful chelsea! how many times have a seen moments like the one you captured and just kept walking or only partially took it in. i love that you noticed it, appreciated it, and ran back upstairs for the camera to capture it. well done! ;)

  2. Beautifully put!! I love your photo, so much. The morning light is truly one of the most magical things to experience.. the softness, the way it slowly moves from one spot to the next, it's almost as if it's dancing. :)
