As the year ended and the new one begins I start feeling a little melancholic. I hate putting away Christmas, but I love the cleaning up that goes with it, saying goodbye to the chaos of the holidays. This photo was serendipitous, I had the settings on my camera all jacked up. The way its blown out really speaks to me of looking forward to new beginnings from where I stand now. The days are finally starting to -slowly- get lighter and its time to let the sun shine in.
