Sunshiny Mornings and Moody Afternoons with Frank & Sammy

Pin It Did you ever notice how the mood of a room changes throughout the day? I notice it a lot in our master bedroom since the redo. There are sunshiny mornings with the sun bursting in. And there are moody afternoons where the low-lying western sun casts blue-grey shadows and interesting patterns.

The other day, I showed the desk vignette featuring an antique advertising mirror and a wire frame. What I didn't tell you was that later in the afternoon, when the sun was dropping in the sky, I grabbed my camera for some more photos.


You can see the how the morning light fills the space, while the afternoon light has its own special hue.



The morning light creates a romantic feel, while the afternoon light makes us aware of varied textures and gives a more sultry feel.



In the morning light, this wire frame played a solo act, while the afternoon sun turned it into a duo with Mr. Shadow coming to join the party. Frank and Sammy, that's your cue! You know what to do...

Me and my shadow 
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that play in a brook
Strolling down the avenue 
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhound's to Liza 
Me and my shadow 
We're closer than smog when it clings to L.A.
We're closer than Bobby is to J.F.K.
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue

Thanks, Frank. Thanks, Sammy. Can we get an encore?


  1. How cool is that light coming in. Different lighting for our different moods. Still love the puppy toys.

  2. I think I like the Moody Afternoon shots the best!

  3. You got it...I'll have one for my baby and one more for the road.
    I like the moody shots!

  4. After the first couple of sentences, I wondered where this was going, but you kept it PG. :-)

    I would imagine that, with your eye for photography, you have a greater appreciation for light than most people. And I really like this post from that perspective. My approach to photography has mostly been, "see, envision, compose, capture." Beyond that, I sometimes experiment with depth of field. But I would like to start "creating" more shots. That is, setting them up and being a little more deliberate about natural lighting angles and such.

    I know this is kind of a tangent to the point of your post, but your photos drive home the importance of timing in photography. Great photos as always!

  5. Love the changes...the photos really show it off!

  6. Amy,

    Our bedroom also has a lot of light with windows on three walls. I like the late afternoon sun and twilight. I admire your photography. Thank you for sharing.


  7. Your photos are great. I love how you captured the different lighting setting off the different moods.

Life whispers...what is it saying today?
