As I delve into my photography kick, I am becoming fascinated with light. I stand awkwardly with camera in hand and observe the way light filters through one medium, or is blocked by another. Then, I scrunch my face as I hold my camera up to my eye and futz with the aperture, contemplating how a dial drastically changes what I capture.

I swear I’m fun to hang around sometimes.

In case you were wondering, that’s not a real diamond. It was a gag gift that has served more purpose than anyone anticipated.
