In the modern world, candles are considered more of a decoration, or a source of illumination during rare power outages. However, I also love the artistic feel of soft candlelight, so I decided to photograph my orange candle in a dark bathroom when I took a break from dusting yesterday. I had actually been dusting my candles and crystal candleholders and realized how seldom these are burnt, so I decided to do an orange candle photoshoot.
Today I am becoming more interested in candles than I have ever been previously, and I am even considering making a candle out of a real orange. Stay tuned to see if I do it.
Today a friend mentioned how one desert scene I captured looked more industrial, and that was part of the reason I did not post it at first. I feel like only the beautiful nature scenes are worth posting, but the manufactured components in the desert have been there decades before my birth, so I always grew up looking at the large pylons connecting power lines between the mountains and the desert. As a kid, I used to think of large pylons as wearing long full skirts and funny large hats.
