When my grandma was still alive, I used to go and stay at her house sometimes in the summer. I always slept in her room.
Those summer nights, her bedroom was always filled with yellow light from the street lamp but it was filtered through her lace curtains. I would fall asleep looking at the lacy shadow on the wall, waving with each tiny breeze.
Since then, I’ve had a love for lace curtains and the shadows they cast on the wall. Every summer, I open our bedroom window to let in the breeze and I keep the curtains open so I can fall asleep to the wavy, shadowy lace on the wall next to our bed. I still find it soothing and peaceful and it makes me fall asleep with a smile.
The original photo was taken in our powder room. Playing with it produced this image, which I’m very proud of.
Lace curtains: a surprising source of beauty and comfort.
