city lights

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

In the darkness of night, there is one particular thing which delights me: the lights. Something about the way they glow and twinkle when all else is pure inky darkness is beautiful to the point of speechlessness. After the beautiful display of the sunset, the stage is shut down and all the people leave. But only a few stay for the final show.

Life has been quite rushed and busy lately. Remarkably busy. Yet, with the sentimental final words of my nanowrimo novel (more on this tomorrow), a portion of the pressure and stress is released. With christmas music playing in the background and schoolwork to be done, life has been a whirlwind these past few days. But it has been beautiful. Truly beautiful.

what has life been like for you?


  1. Life has been busy. Very busy. Preparing for a piano recital, Christmas Cantata, school, and trying to fit in blogging and photo shoots in the mist of all that, is a bit overwhelming. It's posts like these that help, allot. :) Beautiful photos by the way.

  2. Life is confusing and busy... As usual, of course.
    I absolutely love all your pictures! And that one of you is *so* pretty- I love love love it!


    p.s. you do really well choosing your words- it captures everything.

  3. life has been well. the day started off wonderfully, but isn't going as well now, but i pray it will get better. beautiful post :))

  4. Very nice pictures!!

    my day is going ok.... kind of busy, but a laid back kind of busy :)

  5. I love your pictures! You're so good a bokeh shots! Life has been busy for me too...but I'm almost done with my NaNo novel! I can't wait to hear about your story!

  6. Lights make me happy too. :) I love driving through the city at night and watching all the lights pass me by. Great post, dear. :)

  7. my day has been going kind of slow. yesterday too. i'm not super motivated to do my school work. so it's been a kind of rough couple of days.

    i love the last picture!! all of them, actually :)


  8. Life is not as busy this year. We cut out literally almost everything and now I'm doing almost nothing, which I don't really like actually. Lol, I kind of miss seeing my friends at least once every 2 weeks. =P Sometimes I feel like we aren't doing anything. But I think we need less busy days every once in a while. Busyness is a strange thing in a way that people can get lost in it, ya know? Haha wow I'm not making any since and I have no idea what I'm doing in a comment. =P

  9. I love the city lights too! And looking at them through my camera lens out of focus to create Bokeh... love it. :)

  10. i live in chicago, and it is so beautiful at night, especially now in the winter with all the bazaars and holiday markets going on.
    beautiful post!

  11. Beautiful pictures. I've really got to work on some boken shots with all the lovely Christmas light appearing everywhere. Must put it on my "to do" list. :)
    Life's been crazy-busy for me too; but I love it and wouldn't have it any other way.

  12. My life has been very busy too! You are SO amazing at taking pictures. I LOVE to read your posts. :)
