The Magic Hour.

 My favorite time of day, the magic hour.

Right when the sun decides it's time to call it quits for the day and starts to set, is where I find the most beauty in my surroundings.

The intense sunlight juxtaposed by the extreme shadows... you couldn't create that unintentional beauty if you tried.

The magic hour makes me live in the now. You can't help but stop and appreciate what is being given to you.

I like to think of it as the sunlight's last goodbye until tomorrow.
Almost like a, "Here is ALL of this beauty, I hope it can hold you over until sunrise."

Looked outside to appreciate the shadows and I spotted this lone pink bud wanting to be noticed.

It made me smile.

This is my dog Millie. She is chubby and LOVES to nap. Also, she has a talent for finding the one sunny spot in the house. I'm always aware of her during these times, in hopes of getting a perfect reference picture of her in the sunny moment to later illustrate.

 Magic hour, BEAUTIFYING a wall installation I did in my apartment. The morning light and afternoon light in my kitchen makes this clustering irresistible.

I try to describe to art buyers of this vision, but it's impossible to describe it's simple beauty.

A beautiful shadow that my shoes were casting one afternoon. I walked up the stairs and found this AMAZING photo.

This post is so important to me because it's a huge lesson for all of us to learn. If you are aware of your surroundings and if you stay awake, you will be OVERWHELMED with all of the gifts we are given everyday.

Be on the lookout this sundown, you might find something that takes your breath away.

You'll be glad you did.

Love and Light,
Sarah Anne.
