"Those who dream by day are more cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
- Edgar Allan Poe
December is here.
It's hard to get used to the sun sneaking away before 5pm even hits. Walking outside every morning, the sunlight feels that much more warm and precious.
Oh how fleeting these moments are, though.
But that's becoming the speed of the world we live in. It's quick, fast everything. Efficiency defines success, happiness, and desirability. So we keep running, keep chasing the ten million conflicting priorities on our to do list - until our throat is dry and muscles are weary. Especially living in this fast paced city, one of my favorite things to do has been just sitting on a park bench, and soaking up the sun with both eyes closed.
These shots were taken by Erin and Matt of Nothing Matters on the rooftop of their Brooklyn home. Something about the light, wind, and time of day being just right.
Oh, yeah. I've also thrown in some of my disposable shots in this photo series.
I think even without my knowing conscious, I am somehow always drawn to and fascinated by the contrast between darkness and light. The natural orders of the universe wouldn't be right without one or the other.
But I enjoy finding myself dreaming, both day and night.
