As the holiday season approaches many of us begin to focus on home and family. Time seems to morph and change as people hurry and rush about, buying presents and ingredients for big dinners. Things at work tend to slow down and as the end of the month comes so does a heightened sense of love and peace both for our immediate family as well as the world in general. It’s a wonderful time of year.
All of this reminds me of home. The days are short and the warm ambiance of twinkling candles and chandeliers bathes our world in beautiful light, casting deep shadows in the corners and creating an inviting feel. The shots featured in today’s blog were captured near the end of summer as I walked around a district in Victoria well-known for its heritage and character. The way the light dappled against the front of the house accenting some of the unique features that make each home special, mesmerized me. The bay window and other architectural details really add to the overall quaint appearance. No two homes are alike, and each beckons you in.
As different as each others fingerprints, these houses reflect the personal taste and style of those who call them home. An underlying commonality is found in them all, but at the heart of the home each is completely different. No matter what your faith, what you believe in, there’s something at this time of year for everyone. It’s a time when we all look beyond ourselves towards our neighbors and the world as a whole. A sense of togetherness and community takes priority over all else.
We can think of no better way to be.
