The Other Candle


My other candle is a 6 inch pillar that looks like whipped cream to me. I stand and stare at if for moments at a time..


Straight and tall and as it burns it's character changes and it becomes more beautiful to me. Life is like that, the changes as we burn  and age in life, just give us more character... no one needs a face lift... God made plans for us to age just as he wanted us to.


Look at the difference just by moving the candle from one side to the other. Time of day was at day break, just getting light. Moving the camera changes the light. All photo's taken same light same time... the difference is how they are viewed, from what perspective.. JUST LIKE OUR LIVES.

One shot looks like whipped cream, the other like the moon.

Very pretty photos and there's something very relaxing about watching a fireplace or candles burn.

Hope you have a good day.
Off to the dentist later.

Oh... I LOVE your photo header!!! So beautiful! I bet I have taken close to 500 photos trying to get Christmas lights to show their colors. I agree with you about the beauty of a candle and it's similarity to ourselves. I love my wrinkles and lumps and bumps! xx Jackie (aka Dazee)

AH! Proof that candles are beautiful as they burn! I enjoyed this post, Sandra!

It DOES look like whipped cream! And I love your message, it is super today. Linking a candle to our lives, and it is true. I like the second picture best because you can see all the other lights in the background, and a tree is growing out of it's top.

These are great images. I like the way you compare the candles to life. It is so true,we are meant to age and can be beautiful at any age.

Your candle is beautiful. I love how it is burning down and yes God did make plans for us to age.
