Summer Solstice – Celebration of Light

Today is the longest day of the year!!!! Summer solstice which is celebrated in many parts of the world. Here in the states we don’t officially celebrate but I thought I would show those moments when the sun made the moment, made whatever we were looking at even more beautiful. Many of the first few photos were taken at the Palm House at Brooklyn Botanical Gardens a magical place already, but the light can be incredible there, streaming through the Victorian Glasshouse. Others shown below are from places around France and Spain, MoMa’s garden and Garrsion,NY . I am lucky to have had several photographer friends who pointed out what I was already looking at, but in a way I had not really seen before, comprehending the light and my vision was changed forever. One of those photographers was Jennifer Smith who photographed the wedding on the water not once but twice, because when the light changed, she HAD to do it again and she did  with great passion and excitement. Enjoy the photos, enjoy the day, enjoy the light, enjoy the night!
