Erica Baker in the glow of early morning in the Shenandoah mountains.
The light in this image reminds me of a poem, naturally.
"At night make me one with the darkness. In the morning make me one with the light.”
Wendell Berry -from Prayers and Sayings of the Mad Farmer
Erica is a lovely photographer and a good friend. She regularly contributes to a menagerie of publications and blogs her day-to-day along with her husband Dave (another great dude that we will talk about later).
Caption of image above: Roza Riziki, 6, and Esperance Martha, 9, rest in the grass between clapping games on the CCC campus. The grounds have been fenced off in the last year, which provides the children with more room and safety for relaxing.
