Shed a little light

I realize that my past few posts have had nothing to do with pie, but making theater in the mountains is hard work! Who has time for pie when there are sets to be moved, puppets to be rodded and floors to be swept?? I sure don't. <insert grumpy hungry face here>

Gratefully however, I have been able to find a few moments here and there to snap some photos on my phone, and I realized the other day that I had a handful of pics which depict the beautiful light that follows me in New Hampshire. Maybe it's because I spend the majority of my days in a darkened theater, but I make a point to notice and appreciate natural light in it's, well, natural setting.

1.) Looking up while laying down
2.) Light streams through the trees at the river
3.) Not the most well-composed picture ever, but I rolled over one morning to see my bedroom window making the most delightful shadows on the wall.
4.) Full moon sighting at the Mountainview Grand
5.) The sun sets over Whitefield, NH
6. & 7.) I took these two through the window of a moving vehicle; there was about a second or two time lapse between them, and they are both unedited photos. The color difference is due to the fast-moving clouds and the changing sky light.

Happy 4th!

Confession: I love fireworks. I'm not sure what it is about plumes of colored fire beging shot into the sky that excites me so much, but I've always been a fan. Maybe it's because I am on a constant and so far unsuccessful quest to see the Aurora Borealis just once in my life and I tell myself that fireworks are  a close second.

I was not disappointed in the fireworks department this past week; I caught the tail-end of a 4th of July show when some friends and I decided to grab a drink at the Mountainview, and then I learned that I was "strongly encouraged" to attend the theater's fireworks show the following day. As it turns out, one of the theater's technicians puts on his own show in the field behind the barn . They do NOT take this "Live Free" thing lightly up here.

1.) A rainy drive to Littleton
2 - 5.) Happy 4th! (and 5th!)
6.) The scene shop turned temporary firework prep station
7.) Did I spend most of my day off napping on a hammock? Yes. Yes I did.
