Images: finding the extraordinary in the ordinary

The light coming through my kitchen window created this window image on the wall, as well as the smaller one on the painting.  In the image it looks like there are wispy curtains, but there are no curtains at all on this window.  I thought it was weird that the “waves” were moving, and then I realized that the waviness was evaporation coming up from the porch and holly bushes outside.  The steamy evaporation was more visible in the light image cast on the wall than it was outdoors.


In my book, To Come and Go Like Magic, the kids call this “rain wraiths” — the wispy ghosts that rise from the hot pavement and trees after a summer rain.    




  1. Wow! That is really beautiful!

    • Thanks, Tess. It didn’t last long. I think the early September sun was just at the right spot at the right time.

  2. I love the image. My favorite thing to do in photography is to capture reflections.

  3. I love this picture. I love Dylan’s artwork in the original picture.
