The Light in the Blue by Chelsey Léon

To me, there are so many beautiful and inspiring creations in the world. I see magic in
everything around me. It doesn’t have to be a man pulling a rabbit from a hat for me to
find wonder in it. This picture was taken right outside of a home in the suburbs of
Chicago. It’s a simple picture of a lamppost in the snow, but there’s something magical
in the lighting and the footprints (my tiny boot-prints) behind it. Looking at this picture,
I just feel there’s a story here, a portal to a fantastical world away from our modern
everyday one.
