kind of beaming

{to barrow a line from Curious Girl Lisa}

I’m bashfull but proud to say that a photo of mine has been making an appearance in blogdom the last few days, thanks in large part (I’m sure) to Creature Comforts’ post here. I’ve also seen it here, here, and here. It’s been such a boost to my confidence that I had to share it with you. After all, you’ve endured my mopeyness. Why not share in my giddiness too.

This is the photo in question. I shot it in May of last year for the Nectar & Light photo trade  (assignment: into the light). It’s my son’s raw wood playhouse with the sun low, streaming in through a window behind the house. It was a chance shot. I just happened to notice what the sun was doing and grabbed my camera. Five minutes later the sun was too low and the moment had passed.
