The art of producing images by the action of radiant energy, especially light, on a sensitive surface.

The etymology of photography traces to Greek roots: phot- meaning light and graphos- meaning writing.

The art of radiant energy. Writing with light. How lyrical is that? It's no wonder I'm in love with photography. So in love in fact that I've started a second blog to showcase the products of my hobby.

I know, I know, I don't pay enough attention to this blog as it is. I blame facebook for my blog neglect (explanatory post coming soon), but that's beside the point. I post my photos all over this blog and I still intend to do so, but this new blog will be exclusively a photo blog. I recently acquired my first digital SLR, a Nikon D80. I'm excited to take my hobby to the next level - and - just as this blog has strengthened my writing, I anticipate my photo blog will strengthen my photographic skills.

Reader, I'd like to introduce you to madeleines written with light. madeleines written with light, meet Reader.
