#naphopomo 2013, day 29: #lookforthelight, november 2013

Favourite #lookforthelight shots I shared on my Instagram feed this month.  Circles were apparently really big for me in November.

Favourite #lookforthelight shots I shared on my Instagram feed this month.  Circles were apparently really big for me in November.

In addition to doing #NaPhoPoMo this month (and therefore always having my Nikon on me), I was also very mindful to shoot at least an image a day on my iPad through the month of November.  When I began #lookforthelight, my intent was for it to be a monthly photographic gratitude practice -- and it has certainly turned out to be the case.  But what's interesting is that I'm also noticing that there are patterns that emerge in my photostream each month.  Like, in October, it was travel.  This month, it was circles.

I'm not sure what that means, exactly.  But nonetheless, I do like that the patterns are there.

When I look at your beautiful images each month, I notice certain themes and patterns in your work, as well -- there are many more of them, of course, but they do enable me to put them into what I believe are really interesting diptychs.  I love the idea that the themes show commonality among us all, wherever in the world we may be.

Here are my favourite shots of yours for November.  Your light is beautiful.
