Beguiled By Color & Clarity

Last night as I was preparing dinner I glanced across the kitchen and saw this prism of light on the cabinet drawer handle.  Isn’t it pretty?  I was mesmerized by it, so I took a photo of it.

Then a few minutes later I looked outside and saw the clear autumn sky.  So naturally I stopped what I was doing again to take a photo of it.  I always adore photos of the sky taken through trees.

Looking at these photos all I can think is that life is in the details.  Simple moments remembered.  Beautiful colors created by the play of light in the early evening that charmed me into taking photos… just because.

  1. Did you find what created the prism of color on the drawer handle? We have crystal figures in our living room windows that throw these prisms at certain times of day. I love them! Your pictures are gorgeous. We all need to stop sometimes to enjoy the little things life has to offer.

    1. Beth, the light was coming through a bud vase [with our last rose in it] that was sitting on the island counter in the middle of the kitchen. It was all quite random.

    1. Kristen, I understand your design interest. I tend to be the same way.

      The cabinets are from Brookhaven and are white– not a harsh white, but not a glazed white either. The cabinet pull is also from Brookhaven and is pewter, but not the dirty kind of pewter– more leaning toward satin nickel. So there you have it: clear as mud! 😉

    1. Thanks. I thought that they came out very well considering I had one eye on the dinner I was making & the other eye on the photo I was snapping. Multitasking, I tell you.

  2. Lovely photos! The rainbow one reminds me of when we were in France this summer and visited a water park (fountains, rather than roller coaster rides and slides). The children were running through the fountains and the way the water was falling caught the light in such a way that the spray looked like rainbows. And then the light changed and they were gone, much like your rainbow I suspect. Right place at the right time. Polly

    1. Polly, your description of what you saw this summer is exactly how this rainbow appeared. It was there all of a sudden– and then gone. I was quite taken by the whole event.
