A seeker . . .

. . . of light


"This is the play of light,
it enters through the
borders of being. It
occupies each particle
of the air. The air becomes
shining seed. It squirms.
It dances."

- Fiona Farrell


{KK Benjamin}

Light,
it is simply essential in life
and through the lens
our own light
and that required in a photograph



we paint it on canvases
one tells a story, the other lives it
we seek it in life to keep away the darkness
through the lens the darkness
will show us the way to the light.



It reveals and defines
gives structure and form
it glows, cascades, eludes
light is ever changing and magical
and sets the mood for everything

misty, bright, beautiful
early morning or at dusk
reflective, gentle, diffused
mysterious, dreamlike, and at times even brusk



My name is Kim
I am a seeker and finder of things
I paint with light, moments at a time
through a hole in a box.

I am also over at Focusing on Life today, musing about capturing the same light
and creating art not represented in a traditional way. What? Your just gonna have
to click HERE to find out! ;)

Love, Kim xo

Hi Kim,

I am having some dark days here. I stopped in quick to look at your photos and your interpretation of light is gorgeous. Blessings.

Love your description of how you paint with light and your gorgeous images!

Tamar SB said...

These are gorgeous! I need to seek out the blessing of nature's light more. I think in this insanely snowing (yes, its snowing right now) winter is to just retreat and turn the lamp on. Must find light!!!

Love all the light photographs and quotes, but my favorite is the one of the house. The rays coming down through the trees at that angle is beautiful.

You are most definitely a light seeker - your images glow with that magical quality of good light. I love that last thought - of being a "painter with light...through a hole in a box." Wonderful!
