At this time of the year, I have been thinking about how daylight diminishes daily.  Each morning the sun rises one minute later than the day before and it sets one minute earlier.  That’s two minutes per day and November 1 steals away another hour of daylight.  As the amount of light fades there are still opportunities to create visually beautiful images.

Let’s all remember to take the time to really see our surroundings, no matter what the circumstances.

As Dorothea Lange once said, “A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera” . A wonderful  photographer, she was hired by the Farm Security Administration to document the plight of farmworkers in the Great Depression.  A new  book about her work, entitled Dorothea Lange, A Life Beyond Limits by Linda Gordon has recently been published.
