Aesthetic Education #3

I find this image to represent personal comfort in two ways.
The first is warmth. I am one of those people who are permanently frozen. Therefore, fire, candles, blankets and warm beverages are the epitome of comfort.

The second way this image brings me comfort is that I adore photography. This image, although simple, is one of my favorite shots that I have taken. For my grade 12 graduation, I was given a beautiful Canon camera with an incredible 50x optical zoom – GORGEOUS. This was one of the first photos I had taken with my new camera and I love it. I took it in complete darkness with no flash and the light from the candle gave the image a beautiful glow. I was super happy with the results and consequently super happy with my new camera.
