loveNlight

Where is light there is love...
Open your mind, open your heart, leave all fears and beliefs behind
Be adventurous, get ready to be surprised...
there is beauty in everything...


Let me share with you some of the beauty I captured with my camera



Did you ever ask someone to capture the light?



Your life is something opaque, not transparent,
as long as you look at it in an ordinary human way.
But if you hold it up against the light of God's goodness,
it shines and turns transparent, radiant and bright.
And then you ask yourself in amazement:
Is this really my own life I see before me?
~Albert Schweitzer

Light is life...



"The sun shines and warms and lights us and we have no curiosity
to know why this is so; but we ask the reason of all evil, of pain,
and hunger, and mosquitoes and silly people."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson



Light can take your breath away...


"Beauty is not in the face;
beauty is a light in the heart."
~Kahlil Gibran


Light can transform anything...

The black moment is the moment when the real message
of transformation is going to come.
At the darkest moment comes the light.
~Joseph Campbell


Light blesses everything...



An age is called "dark," not because
the light fails to shine but because
people refuse to see it.
~James Michener


Light is warm, mysterious and it is magic...

"Begin challenging your own assumptions.
Your assumptions are your windows on the world.
Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in."
~Alan Alda
