Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place...
II Chronicles 7:15
I give my prayers
Before I go to bed
At night...
My thoughts said,
With my eyes
Open to God's light...
A quiet place
Is our upstairs
For grace
Plus solitude;
And I expressed
The mood...
While dressed
In lace
And white.
Poetry by me AJP

It was rainy today and I did another existing light portrait upstairs experimenting with the light..using manual focus without flash which I think is a soft type of lighting. The lacey white dress I am wearing I bought at the thrift shop that I went to with my lady friends yesterday and I was so happy it fit me without trying it on before I bought it.

Manual Focus
Aperture f/4.5
Shutter speed 1/8 sec.
Focal length 55mm
ISO Speed 250
lamp lighting

    It seems several Daily SP folks are experimenting with light...and all are doing a terrific job! This is so pretty, and very peaceful. How lucky you are to buy without the try!!

    love you sp! I'm attending a Gathering of Faith at our church due to my son's upcoming confirmation. Our last session was about finding a quiet place to offer our prayer. Love to see that you found yours.

    Very sacred and humble in appearance, Andrea. I love your dress too, and it certainly become you! I always go up to my room (the upper rooom) to say my evening prayers and meditate on a scripture verse. Nothing in this world is more relaxing and peaceful! Exceptionally wonderful photo!!
