Gently Waiting

We’ve been in the house for about 5 years, but it was only a month ago that I hung a curtain on the bedroom window.

In the winter the window is bare, but in past summers I’ve draped scarves over the sashes to keep the hot sun out.

Saturday was the first day warm enough to close the curtain.  When I came up the stairs and saw how beautiful the sun and breeze looked coming in the window, through the curtain, I had to take a picture.

I like the way the folds of the curtain rest on the overflowing laundry basket.  I like the over-all mood of the photo, which is soft and like the room is gently waiting.

  1. That’s a lovely still life you captured there. It has a very painterly quality, reminds me of works from the Baroque period. Especially where the fabric of the curtains begins to crinkle and shape itself around the basket, for some reason. But the light and the mood in general, too. Well seen!
